Writing in the Har­vard Busi­ness Review and the Wash­ington Post, two U.S. busi­ness pro­fes­sors, Vijay Govin­darajan from Dart­mouth and Ravi Ramam­murti from North­eastern Uni­ver­sity tell the story of how Indian hos­pi­tals deliver better care for much less,” writes John Man­drola in The Atlantic.

The two pro­fes­sors uncov­ered nine pri­vate hos­pi­tals in India that pro­vide quality care at a frac­tion of U.S. prices. For example, car­diac surgery there costs $3,200, which is 5 to 10 per­cent of the cost in the United States. Out­comes are com­pa­rable and the hos­pi­tals make a profit. ‘Narayana Health, for instance, reports that the 30-​​day post-​​surgery mor­tality rate for coro­nary artery bypass pro­ce­dures at its Ban­ga­lore hos­pital is below the average rate recorded by a sample of 143 hos­pi­tals in Texas,’ they write.

More striking than the ends, though, were the means. Three major inno­va­tions lie at the heart of the Indian hos­pi­tals’ success.”
