Diagnosing Health Diagnostic World

Only about 30% of population are blessed with proper healthcare in the present healthcare setting in India, and about 7% are fortunate to encounter right healthcare. Almost 70% populace are dependent on home based medication, quacks, RMPs, and God.

Diagnostic is the key element of health treatment process; Even experts need patients’ diagnostic done to identify disorder precisely. In the present scenario, abundance of labs doesn't guarantee precise diagnostic as all the samples might not under go testing as quickly as taken from patients, and tend to loose its veracity. Also, there are many chances for samples not reaching to diagnostic equipment in original form, so results can always be challenged.

There are many reasons for lack of precision in lab reports:-
Poor collections logistics and process.
Quality and advancement of technology usage.
Intention behind test recommendation.

More than 80% diagnostics ordered by physicians turn out with negative results! Isn’t it big surprise? My mind is trying to disentangle few questions-

1. Aren't Physicians qualified enough in triage process?
2. Is Physician’s intention restricted to precise diagnostic?
3. Does lab test charges includes Physicians’ commission as well?
