MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT

The growth in high income countries is going to be weak, Developing countries will have to search increasingly for growth within the developing world. Under these conditions prospects and growth rates that seems relatively easy to achieve during the first decade of this millennium may become much more difficult to attain in the second.

HEALTH CARE SCENARIO

The health care economy is generally resilient and is not impacted by recessions. Even though the world economy is weak, the health care industry has remained largely insulated.

The Indian healthcare industry is estimated to be valued at Rs 2.8 trillion in size in Financial Year 2011, growing at a 5 year CAGR of 13,1% p.a. CARE Research estimates healthcare industry has the potential to almost double to Rs 5.0 trillion over the next five years, implying a growth rate of 12% p.a. This will be mainly driven by rise in per capita spending on health care, change in demographic profile, transition in disease profile, increase in health insurance penetration and fast growing medical tourism market.

OUTLOOK AND FUTURE PROSPECTS

The health care sector in India is poised for rapid growth in the medium term. The Hospital has under gone NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers) accreditation process and is quite confident of getting it.

Our domain expertise coupled with the state of the art equipments and the quality of services have made the Hospital a leader. The demand for treatment from the domestic front is encouraging and continues to be robust. The Hospital is also planning to embark on attracting international patients in a big way.

A combination of demographic and economic factors is going to impact health carc industry in India. Increase in population, shift in demographics, rise in disposable income, increase in incidence of lifestyle related diseases, rising literacy are the few drivers that propels the growth of health care industry.

COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTER

The Comprehensive Cancer Center was inaugurated by his Excellency Dr.K.Rusaiah, Governor of Tamil Nadu on 07.11.2011. The center is a world class facility with state of the art infrastructure providing the entire range of services including awareness, detection and treatment for different types of cancers. The center has a well knit team across radiation oncology, surgical oncology, medical oncology and nuclear medicine.

OPPORTUNITIES Medical Tourism

Medical Tourism is a highly growing sector in India and is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 30%. Medical tourism is one of the foremost external drivers that fuel the growth of health care industry. The state of the art medical equipments, reputed health care professionals, quality nursing facilities, best in class treatment, low cost treatment etc. attracts foreign patients to look for treatment in India.

Rising Investments

Strong demand for hospital services in tier 2 and 3 cities is bound to fuel the growth of the health care sector in India. In recent years there have been considerable investments from domestic players, financial investors as well as private equity firms in the corporate health care sector.

Health Insurance

The nature of health problems are changing rapidly and the cost of the treatment is also increasing. The increase in organisation has led to higher incidence of life related diseases. Now more number of people in the urban and semi urban areas are opting for health insurance in view of the rising health care costs. The health insurance is one of the fastest growing segments in our country.

RISKS, CHALLENGES AND THREATS Talent Pool

The Indian health care sector is one of the latest service providers and employs millions of work force. Shortage of doctors and skilled manpower like nurses, technicians is plaguing the health care industry.

The urban-rural divide, lack of adequate training to the health care workers, inadequate HR policies in the system are the areas which hampers the growth of the health care industry in our country

Investments

The health care sector is a capital intensive sector and need significant funding to grow.

Inflation and rising cost

The impact of inflation and the ever increasing operating cost of the health care industry like salaries, administrative cost, fuel cost, increase in interest cost are the various factors which affect the health care deliver}' in India.

Competition by private sectors and obsolesce of medical equipments due to rapid technological changes are the various challenges faced by the health care industry.
