NHIF visit to A&K Global Health’s India network sparks big plans

Mar 15, 2017 / A&K Global Health

You know A&K Global Health maximizes healthcare access, affordability, and quality everywhere we work. But how exactly do we do it, you ask? Though implementation is challenging and complex, our approach is simple: serving as healthcare management thought leader and “connector” of relevant parties, we facilitate positive exchange between national health systems for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Take December 2016, for example. To cap a year during which we oversaw unprecedented collaboration between East African and Indian health sectors, increasing both national and international patient care, we managed a visit by Kenya’s National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) leadership to a collection of our Indian partner hospitals that treat NHIF beneficiaries.

From 7-10 December 2016, our Delhi and Bangalore staffs welcomed four top NHIF officials. The delegation received briefings from A&K Global Health leaders and visited BLK Hospital, Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI), and Artemis Hospital in Delhi; Columbia Asia, Fortis, and BGS Global Hospitals in Bangalore; Sri Ramakrishna Multispecialty Hospital in Coimbatore; and Fortis and Global Hospitals in Chennai.

“A&K Global Health regularly hosts NHIF delegations to India,” said Aleksandra Golota, Senior Relations Manager. “While these trips are partly prophylactic checks, ensuring all hospitals are fully meeting expectations, they deliver much more than quality assurance. They facilitate direct relationship building between our partner institutions, and create fresh opportunities for collaboration.”

For instance:

“It was a pleasure welcoming NHIF around India,” said Saraladevi Gangadhara, Director of A&K Global Health’s Treatment Management Center in Bangalore. “We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with NHIF, and liaising with our Indian hospital partners, to serve NHIF’s patients and domestic healthcare providers in 2017 and beyond.”
