Workshop on Setting up AYUSH Hospitals

Around 200 members interested in Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) gathered at Madurai District Tiny and Small-Scale Industries Association (MADITSSIA) to understand the ways to register their practice.
The workshop, which was conducted here on Sunday, saw participants from various parts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry.
J. Jeyavenkatesh, Chairman, Kokila Siddha Hospital, spoke on the importance of the Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010.
“Registering the practice under the Act will prevent small-time quacks from cheating the people. It will also help in getting loans from the State and Central governments for establishment of hospitals,” he said.
Dr. Jeyavenkatesh explained to the practitioners the method to register under the Act, preparation of project reports entailing availability of services and means to get accredited.
He also provided an insight into switching to cashless treatment and scope of opening a multi-speciality AYUSH centre.
J. Sriram, one of the members of the Central Council for Indian Medicine, said if hospitals had 15 beds and adequate facilities, they could procure national accreditation.
They could even tie up with the Tamil Nadu government’s Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme so that people across the social spectrum could get access to treatment.
“The country is slowly moving back to AYUSH treatment and there is a growing demand for medicines from the public. It would be great if the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Thoppur has a special centre dedicated for Siddha care as it is traditional medicine that originated from Tamil Nadu,” said K. P. Murugan, president, MADITSSIA.
