The proposed ‘national strategy for providing essential diagnostics diagnosticsfacilities free for all’ is meant for anyone visiting a public health facility ” from a village health post to a district hospital.

A panel of experts are learnt to have provided the Centre with a list of diagnostic tests considered essential for all categories of health facilities. The health ministry has also consulted some of the biggest companies in the diagnostic sector, including SRL, Dr Lal PathLabs, Quest Diagnostics, Mahajan Imaging and Star Imaging to thrash out all service provider issues.

Along with reducing people’s health expenditure, the initiative is expected to help promote the diagnostics and reagents sectors, which currently have just over 20% share in the medical technology market.
