Medical tourism is the most happening phenomena in the recent days in China. It is noted that many patients in China are travelling to developed countries like USA to do the treatment and diagnosis. The main reason of this is nothing but the inefficiency of the doctors and domestic public hospital in China. The service quality of the Chinese doctors are seen low. The prescriptions given are mostly seen disordered and not proper.
Another notable thing seen in China healthcare is the increasing expenditures in the healthcare services. When compared to the GDP in China, the rate of expenditure is increasing at an alarming rate in the recent years. This contributed to the lack of proper or affordable healthcare services to the patients in China. However, the treatment methods are still low efficient and there is no proper care to the patients given. The main reason for this is the inefficiency of the doctors and other medical staffs. The healthcare resources are seen used in an ineffective way and this contributes more to the increased cost of treatment. The expected high quality care for patients are lacking these days in the healthcare sector. The patients are not given a proper treatment or prescriptions that add more to the adverse conditions of their illness.
The medical trreatment for the common man in China is seen out of the reach due to the increased rate of medical expenses they have to bear. Consulting a doctor in the hospitals in China has also become a costlier affair in the recent days.
Hence, most of the Chinese, around 500 million people, are finding their medical treatment ways in other developed countries like USA. People are seen travelling to America and other developed countries just to get proper treatment and high quality patient care. This will highly affect the Chinese e economy and population in an adverse manner. In order to raise the standard of living of Chinese population, there is a great need for the developments in the healthcare sector in China. To become a society with harmony, all services are to be of high quality, serving th e needs of the people in China. Being this the objective of the Chinese government, there is a vital responsibility from the part of all the key stakeholders to fill this gap in the health care sector in China, for the prosperity of people as well as the economy. The government is seeking the support from both public and private sector companies for the improvement of healthcare sector in China.
