Corruption and Fraud in Health Care system

Corruption in Healthcare services is causing the death of lives and turning the lives of people depending on public health care into miserable. A report submitted by Transparency International on the situation of Global // Health has reported their findings in a report Global Corruption Report 2006 that reveals the pathetic situation of health care which has been hounded by corruption in all levels in hospitals.

The United Nation’s Millennium Development Goal is aimed at improving the health of people world wide, with goals of increasing maternal health, decreasing the mortality of infants and improving treatment and diagnosis of infectious and chronic diseases. Government departments world wide are spending more than $ 3 trillion every year as health care spending which is aimed at increasing treatment and helping the poor and needy by offering free and affordable health care, all these money spend are money paid by their citizens as tax to the government and due to fraud and irresponsibility of health care system the entire tax money is being wasted.

Though, most of the health care sector function properly there are increasing fraud and thefts of public money and hospital misuse in health care sector which is the main cause of concern, most of the fraud is in the form of stealing hospital medicines and selling it to outside pharmacies, providing substandard food to patients although the money allotted for food contractors are high, stealing hospital diagnostic and operation equipments and selling outside, bribery collected by working staff, nurses and helpers to provide service to the patient, not maintaining the clean and hygiene in hospitals, absentee of doctors who is responsible for providing the treatment to the patient and misusing the hospital funds by the hospital authorities.

These malpractices and fraud in the health care system can be corrected by increasing the transparency of the working of the healthcare system and makin g the records available in a more transparent way which would curb corruption and fraud, the Government should follow strict rules in dealing with corrupted health care workers and rigorous punishment should be given to them which would avoid them and others not indulge in fraud in hospitals.
