The health care sector in India has been witnessing a huge demand-supply gap in its service delivery, as public health care services are found to be inadequate in serving the huge population. To bridge this gap and improve the efficiency of services, health care reforms, especially in the form of private partnerships in public sector are being encouraged. The government of Rajasthan, India, has taken up an initiative in this direction. Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital, a public sector hospital in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, has been able to successfully implement a Public Private Partnership initiative. As part of the initiative, the hospital has invited private diagnostic centres to set up diagnostic equipment, CT (computerised tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan in the hospital premises. As a result, the hospital is able to offer high quality services at affordable prices to the poor. While the cost of services has come down drastically, the waiting time for patients has also reduced. At the same time, private partners are being benefited from the volume of patients who visit government hospital and are able to achieve economies of scale.
