Competitive Environment
In the healthcare services segment, we face competition from other acute care hospitals, including
tertiary hospitals located in larger markets; specialty hospitals that focus on one or a small
number of lucrative service lines; standalone centres at which surgeries or diagnostic tests can be
performed; and physicians on the medical
staffs of our hospitals. The shortage of bed supply in India continues to be high, although
several healthcare service providers have aggressive organic growth plans. In addition,
our competitors are also expanding presence by acquiring/ partnering with existing
smaller hospitals. Going forward, pricing could come under pressure in our key markets
and competition for medical staff could intensify both of which may have an adverse
effect on our operations. It is widely recognized that India has a shortage of physicians
in certain practice areas, including specialists such as cardiologists and orthopedists, in
various areas of the country. Healthcare insurance penetration is Increasing rapidly,
which may lead to a scenario where the costs of providing care rise faster than
reimbursement rates. We are putting in place systems and procedures to increase cost
efficiency and transfer best practices across our hospital network. Our standalone
pharmacies (SAPs) compete primarily with the unorganised sector. Organised sector
penetration in the pharmacy sector is currently only 2%, and unorganised players are
able to offer similar services as the organized players. We differentiate ourselves by
ensuring high quality of the drugs supplied through SAPs, ensuring convenience for and
building deeper relationships with the end-customer and creating linkages between our
hospitals and SAPs.
