How providers can make advanced diagnostics more accessible & affordable

By *Imala

GUEST OPINION: Quality healthcare is one of the significant factors that make a country worth living in.

People feel more secure when they can access reliable diagnostic and medical services at affordable costs. It helps with the early detection of diseases, facilitates timely treatments, and boosts the overall longevity of the population. But the ever-growing costs of medical services make them unaffordable for many patients. Moreover, the pandemic has proved that providers need to ramp up the availability of services during critical situations. Here are some ways they can make advanced diagnostics more accessible and affordable for patients.

Reduce administrative costs

Administrative costs of clinics and hospitals lead to an increase in healthcare expenses, and the burden falls on the patients. Moreover, multiple systems in diagnostic facilities lead to more waste. Cutting back on the unnecessary admin costs can help providers lower the overall cost of their services. It translates into lower medical bills for the patients. But facilities must ensure that cost-cutting happens without compromising the quality of service and care they receive.

Generate awareness about early diagnostics

Healthcare providers can do their bit by increasing public awareness about rapid disease detection with early diagnostics. The sooner a disease is identified, the shorter the treatment duration. Moreover, it lowers the cost of treatment, and success rates are higher. Practitioners and diagnostic centres should encourage people to opt for preventive health check-ups from time to time. Facilities like home collection and same-day reports make patients even more aware and conscious of the significance of early diagnosis.

Offer discounts and benefits

Providing discounts and benefits is another effective measure to make advanced diagnostics more accessible and affordable for patients. For example, they can accept consumption vouchers to economize preventive health check-ups for patients. HA referral discounts also go a long way in encouraging patients to opt for expensive medical and diagnostic screenings. With these discounts, preventive care is within reach for everyone.

Promote virtual healthcare

Healthcare providers can benefit from the innovative technology that emerged strongly during pandemic times. Virtual check-ups and consultations are far cheaper than walk-in consultations. Additionally, they ensure access to quality care for patients living in remote places. Connecting with practitioners is convenient, and people can save on the cost and time of commuting. Moreover, practitioners tend to recommend only the essentials for patients.

Eliminate unnecessary tests

Many patients end up missing out on vital tests because they spend most of their budgets on unnecessary ones. Multiple tests and health screenings required by healthcare providers can elevate total medical bills. Moreover, patients have to bear inconvenience while preparing and commuting for these tests. Doctors must prescribe only the required tests for clinical evaluation and skip the rest.

Healthcare providers can do their bit to ensure that the essential screenings and diagnostics are within reach of an average patient. They will be in a better place to get these tests and avail of timely treatment for their health conditions. With timely and accurate diagnostics becoming a norm, the world will be a healthier place.
