Best practices across the globe can be studied but India should focus on designing its own model to establish a cost-effective and high-quality healthcare ecosystem, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said on Thursday.

Addressing a round table with top corporate hospitals here, he highlighted the need to strengthen the approach of hospitals to collaboratively provide high-quality healthcare services to the deserving population of the country.

He also stressed that the various challenges stated by the hospitals can be resolved through the collective efforts of the government and the stakeholders.

"We need to make health accessible, affordable, and patient-friendly," Mandaviya said while emphasising the contributions of the hospitals to the successful implementation of any public health scheme.

He also dwelled on the need to strengthen the approach of hospitals to collaboratively provide high-quality healthcare services and assured the industry of full support in realising Prime Minister's vision of Universal Health Coverage.

Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, who also attended the event, said: "During the transition phase, various hurdles can occur which shall be resolved over the course of the journey. To achieve the same, regular feedback from all the stakeholders is paramount. It is the top priority of the government to stabilise the system."
