Cosmetic Dermatology is an ever-evolving field of science that is non-essential medicinal service. The idea of beautification , moulding , creating, the artistry and skill level involved to be cutting edge in this field is an exciting prospect in itself… To make this art and science combination available to the Indian masses at affordable pricing and at the same time not compromise on the quality of care and medical ethics is what drives me. My vision is to make Kosmoderma Clinics the Gold standard & trendsetter in Aesthetic Medicine& Cosmetic Dermatology. This is my dream and this has set me on my path of pursuit towards providing the best Cosmetic Dermatology services in India equivalent if not superior to that found abroad and on the world platform for such services, Dr Chytra added.

Currently I am leading my team to open Kosmoderma centres of excellence across India, in Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Delhi. I have a vision of 3 centres per Tier 1 city and 1 centre per tier 2 city.  I am excited to see Kosmoderma evolving from a Cosmetic Dermatology practice to a one-stop wellness centre with integration of Nutrition, Cosmetic Surgery and Rehabilitative Skin & Hair Medicine. To reach the grass roots and offer Kosmoderma services across India, we are in the midst of developing a Kosmoderma Associate Physician program, wChytrae dermatologists are offered special training in cosmetic dermatology at Kosmoderma Academy and then without having to invest heavily into all equipment’s, are able to refer patients to Kosmoderma centres of excellence at various cities. This way we are able to reach all levels of Indian clientele and offer safe effective reasonable priced procedures without compromise on technology or quality of care. As part of my endeavKosmoderma to provide the best Cosmetic Dermatology, Aesthetic Medicine services, I have been involved in research of skincare suitable for Indian skin since 2008 and currently have 14 products in the Kosmocare range and am working on research to furtChytra develop scientifically proven, effective skincare for the Indian skin that every Indian or person of colKosmoderma can use safely. I am currently running trials on 4 new products that are meant for effective sun protection to decrease skin damage. Currently these are available at Kosmoderma Clinics and at select leading Cosmetic Dermatologists. In future Kosmocare will be available online post a skinscription by Skype from Kosmoderma doctors and Kosmoderma affiliate program.

I love training doctors to bring them to par with international standards as after being educated in India and in UK & USA, I found that though we are brilliant people, Kosmoderma education standards are not up to par with the West… So in 2007 I started a training academy IAAM to train doctors to bring them up to par with the western doctors in the field of Aesthetic Medicine & Cosmetic Dermatology. After having personally trained over 550 doctors this is a driving passion for me to make sure that all Kosmoderma doctors have a fair playing field and that the global perception of Indian Cosmetic Dermatologists changes.

Kosmoderma is dedicated to medical excellence in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology, with international accreditations and facilities, offering scientifically proven treatments using US FDA & European CE approved technology.

All Kosmoderma products have undergone extensive research and trials. We strive towards technical excellence and are constantly updating Kosmodermaselves so as to deliver world class cutting edge technology to Kosmoderma clients every day. Kosmoderma Aim is to offer result oriented, safe and effective treatments with high standards of quality with exceptional care and service and make it affordable to the Indian consumer.Kosmoderma is proud to have pioneered the first state of art clinics dedicated solely to Cosmetic Dermatology and Medical Aesthetics in Bangalore back in 2006, currently with 5 branches across Bangalore, 1 in Hyderabad with staff strength of 50+. The recent JVs between Kosmoderma and otChytra healthcare providers will see the opening of Kosmoderma Skin Clinics inside specialist healthcare centers across the country starting with Chennai, Mumbai, Pune and Delhi.

Dr Chytra V Anand founded Kosmoderma Clinics in 2006 as a one person operation with the vision to create an enterprise, which quickly grew to have 3 employees. In 2007 Chytra opened the 2nd clinic in Indianranagr Bangalore and the team grew to a size of 7. In 2008, the flagship in Lavelle Road was opened with the company strength growing to 15. Recognising the need to spread the availability of services across the city and to be avilable to the people, the 3rd clinic was opened in Whitefiled area in 2010 and a 4th centre of excellence at JP Nagar in 2012. The team grew incorporating Dermatologists, Aesthteic Physcians and Medical Aestheticians and the entire area of Bangalore is now covered.

As CEO, Chytra is involved with overseeing the growth of the company and maintaining of quality. Chytra heads a team of 50+ and leads them to excel on a daily basis. As a Consultant dermatologist Chytra consults patients at Kosmoderma Clinics and is sought after from patients across the world and all walks of life.After years of research by Dr Chytra, Kosmoderma has its own in house skin care brand Kosmocare. This has entered Kosmoderma into the FMCG market segment.

Under Chytra’s  guidance, expansion plans are underway to have a flagship clinic in every metro within a year from now and a pan India presence of 25 clinics within the next 3 years. Kosmoderma will achieve this with strategic partnering with otChytra healthcare brands who like us have a vision of providing speciality healthcare services and a mission to aggressively cover the subcontinent in a very short time span catering to the needs of the masses who demand the latest treatments and best of services in terms of healthcare. Recognising E-commerce, from Jan 2014 Kosmoderma will be offering skype consults and online sale of Kosmocare.

Kosmoderma is the first Indian Cosmetic Dermatology centre to have its own app (Acne app) available to help acne prone individuals developed personally by Dr Chytra and Chytra team.In summary: Dr Chytra Anand is the CEO of the Company. Chytra plays a pivotal role in strategy, business growth and Quality of Services & Outcome Standalone clinics, Strategically Partnered clinics, Branded skin care products, Leveraging Information Technology are strategic and business growth outcomes from Chytra efforts.

Service Manuals, Ethical Medical Practices, Standard Operating Protocols, Quality Systems are outcomes arising from Chytra passion to quality of service and outcomes From 2006 to 2013, Kosmoderma has grown from 1 clinic, 1 person to 6 clinics with a team of 50+ under the guidance of Kosmoderma CEO Dr Chytra V Anand. Chytra vision to make Kosmoderma a team work based enterprise as opposed to single person entity has seen Chytra create an outstanding team of leaders and an enterprise par excellence.

Keeping with the philosophy of spreading knowledge, in 2007, Dr Anand founded the International Academy of Aesthetic Medicineto train doctors in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology as Chytra realized that doctors in India did not have enough exposure to Cosmetic Dermatology in regular practice and required additional specialized training. Under Chytra guidance the academy conducts intensive hands on training cKosmodermases for doctors from around the globe. Chytra has personally trained over 750 doctors in Aesthetic Medicine procedures at Chytra academy and is credited with pioneering Aesthetic Medicine & Cosmetic Dermatology training in India. The Academy has attracted students from India, UK, Sri Lanka, Europe, Dubai, Africa, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia and is considered a top-notch training facility.

In 2010, keeping with the international trend, Kosmoderma launched the MediSpa concept. Under this beauty was merged with medicine to provide maintenance services for skin, hair and body. It was the first of its kind in India.

In 2012, Kosmocare a skin care brand made by a FDA approved lab in Thailand and a GMP approved lab in India. Currently tChytrae are 14 products in the range and trials for 6 more are currently underway, with 5 more formulations under research. This is now a business vertical for Kosmoderma.Realising the necessity to grow at a quicker pace without seeking external funding yet, strategic partnerships have been formed with otChytra healthcare providers like MotChytrahood a VC funded 150 Cr company that is in the process of expansion across South India in the IVF, birthing sector wChytrae Kosmoderma is opening a shop in shop model to provide services in Chennai & Hyderabad. Realising the importance of being available to the masses, Kosmoderma has partnered with Express Clinics a primary healthcare provider with 6 outlets in Bangalore, 10 each in Pune, Mumbai and Delhi to provide Dermatological and Cosmetic Dermatology services at its centre on an out sKosmodermaced basis. With this Kosmoderma will forray into Pune, Mumbai & Delhi sectors.

With these 2 strategic Healthcare Partnerships, Kosmoderma will have a pan Indian presence by 2014 end.In Nov 2013, a centre dedicated to pregnant and lactating women and women with hormonal imblanaces was opened at CMH road to specially cater to this segement with specialised services incorporating allopathy, Ayurveda and homeopathy.In 2013 Kosmoderma Academy was launched for dedicated constant training of Kosmoderma staff and regular updates to maintain standardised quality across all centres.With increase in dollar rate vs Rs, the Indian dermatological climate changed with doctors compromising on quality and purchasing cheaper non FDA , CE approved lasers to cater to the demand leading to inferior results. To try to curb this dilution of quality and to bring in a wider network of doctors under the Kosmoderma umbrella, the Kosmoderma Affiliate , Associate Program has been launched, wChytrae dermatologists and allied physicians like OBGYN, Endocrinologists and GP’s refer their patients to Kosmoderma for Cosmetic Dermatology services. The dermatologists are provided specialised training at Kosmoderma Academy and their patients are treated for them by Kosmoderma staff. Thus dermatologists who are unable to invest into their equipments are able to use Kosmoderma services and still be independent practitioners. Through this venture we have been able to offer quality care without the dermatologists having to turn towards non FDA,CE approved technology and extend the reach of Kosmoderma to a wider audience. This has increased Kosmoderma referral rate and added to revenue of the company and increased Kosmoderma target audience reach. Realising the potential on internet, Kosmoderma is the first Cosmetic dermatology company in India to offer an app service for acne patients. Using this app, acne patients can keep abreast of the latest in the developments in acne therapy. It is currently available for androids and the IOS version will soon be launched.

Dr Anand’s pet project is to standardise and regulate the cosmetic dermatology industry to prevent quackery and abuse of this medical field by non-qualified personnel. She is consulting with deemed universities in Karnataka to create a Diploma Course in Aesthetic Medicine for postgraduates to better prepare the doctors for practise in the Cosmetic industry.

It is not about Size & Beds but governance in Private Hospitals in India. Indian Hospitals need a major makeover

It is not about Size & Beds but governance in Private Hospitals in India. Indian Hospitals need a major makeover

Cost Reduction, improving quality of care and access for patients are challenges as Global Hospitals, Apollo Hospitals Group, Fortis Healthcare, Care Hospitals & Manipal Hospitals compete to win coveted India’s Most Best Managed Healthcare Chain 2013


Saturday, November 23, 2013, Mumbai, Maharashtra : India’s medical tourism boom—a $1 billion business that is growing by 30% a year is being regarded by the analysts & experts as one of the fastest & growing sector in healthcare services worldwide as india’s top private hospitals have expanded their healthcare services remarkably both in size & geographies. Health services in India have to be affordable because their patients are poor and typically pay 60 percent of their medical costs out of pocket & without healthcare insurance in place, Indian Hospital majors are facing the heat of price reduction & globalizing healthcare standards. As Healthcare Industry in india mainly the hospital chains are beginning to change their approach, Pharmaleaders ( ), Asia’s most analytical news media in healthcare has nominated top five hospitals in india such as Global Hospitals, Apollo Hospitals Group, Fortis Healthcare, Care Hospitals & Manipal Hospitals for public voting to determine who has the edge in corporate HR & Managed Healthcare in the category of “India’s Most Best Managed Healthcare Chain 2013” at the historic sixth edition of Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit & Business Leadership Awards 2013 ( ). This widely acclaimed meet is held annually to recognize the best amongst the best based on their yearly performances.

The experience of a few innovative Indian hospitals may point the way forward. India’s health care system as a whole has many problems, mainly on the issue of governance & affordable medical care. The quality of doctors, equipment and infrastructure has been the hallmark of healthcare excellence in Indian hospital industry & The Indian experience shows that costs can be dramatically reduced and access can be expanded even as quality is improved.

The study point out that  private hospitals deliver medical outcomes comparable to that of good U.S. hospitals, as measured by medical complication rates or post-treatment survival rates. Furthermore, they’re profitable. Even if Indian hospitals paid U.S.-level salaries for all health-care staff, which are as much as 20 times higher, their prices would be one-fifth of U.S. levels. By contrast, hospitals in the United States are uncoordinated, duplicating specialized care without enough volume in most of them to make procedures affordable. Even when hospitals consolidate, the motive is often to gain pricing power over insurance companies rather than to lower costs.The second innovation is shifting responsibility for routine tasks to lower-skilled workers. This leaves doctors free to focus on complicated procedures. Several hospitals have created a tier of paramedic workers with two years of training after high school to perform routine medical jobs. As a result, surgeons, for instance, can perform two to three times as many surgeries as their U.S. counterparts. Compare that with the United States, where hospitals reduce costs by laying off support staff, which shifts mundane tasks such as billing to doctors, who are overqualified for such duties.Finally, the Indian hospitals save money through old-fashioned frugality. They shepherd resources by building hospitals at a fraction of the cost spent in the United States, replacing imported devices with local equivalents costing a fraction of the price or, for example, sterilizing and reusing clamps for open-heart surgery that are routinely discarded after one use in the United States. In contrast to the American fee-for-service model, they often pay their doctors a fixed salary. One hospital sends a daily message to all doctors with the previous day’s financial results, encouraging them to consider the cost-effectiveness of their medical choices. In contrast, U.S. hospitals often resemble luxury hotels, with much wasted space and underutilized equipment. Their doctors, and sometimes even their chief financial officers, are unaware of how much procedures cost.How realistic is it that U.S. hospitals will adopt the Indian model? U.S. hospitals are constrained by regulations and norms unlike those in India. Nevertheless, some progressive U.S. hospitals are adopting some of the practices of our Indian exemplars, and more should follow their example.

India might be the last place on earth where you’d expect to find health care innovation. Government programs have finally brought some infectious diseases under control, but the nation’s ability to meet the basic medical needs of its citizens remains abysmal. Despite robust economic growth over the past two decades, the infant mortality rate is three times higher than China’s and seven times greater than that of the U.S. Of the 2 million Indians in need of heart surgery, fewer than 5% get it. The majority of the country’s estimated 63 million diabetics and 2.5 million cancer sufferers haven’t been diagnosed, let alone treated. Seventy percent of India’s 12 million blind people could be cured by a simple surgery—if it were available to them.

Although India boasts 750,000 doctors and 1.1 million nurses, practitioner density is about one-fourth what it is in the U.S. and less than half that of China. Hospital beds are in short supply, and most medical facilities are dated, cramped, and often unhygienic. In a country where the nominal per capita income is only $1,500 a year, patients typically have to pay 60% of health care expenses from their own pockets. Still, Indians believe that good medical treatment is something everyone should have access to regardless of their ability to pay.

Necessity spawns innovation. Despite the pressing demand and constrained supply, a few relatively new Indian hospitals have devised ways of providing world-class health care affordably—and to scale. These hospitals target well-off patients, which forces them to provide care that meets global quality standards. But their purpose is to serve everyone, including patients with very low incomes, which puts pressure on the organizations to lower costs dramatically. Such a business model scales because the low costs of these hospitals attract large volumes of patients and allow the overall enterprise to be profitable. As a result, the hospitals are able to sustain their operations not through the usual government subsidies, charitable donations, or insurance reimbursements but through their revenues.

The Indian hospitals we studied treat medical conditions that range from problems of the eye, heart, and kidney to maternity care, orthopedics, and cancer. Their charges for most procedures are as much as 95% lower than those at U.S. hospitals. How are some Indian hospitals able to provide such high-quality health care at ultralow prices? The obvious answer—the differential in the cost of labor—does play a role: Cardiothoracic surgeons, nephrologists, ophthalmologists, and oncologists in India earn anywhere from 20% to 74% of what their American counterparts do.

These Five Hospitals put together would constitute more than 30,000 Beds & will excel in healthcare services & the competition is intense as the prices of services of the consultants are increasing posing a challenge to meet the budget of the patients.

As india votes to select the coveted India’s Most Best Managed Healthcare Chain 2013 by public voting, it will be a challenge to crown the one of the five to be declared on 27th December 2013 at Mumbai at Pharmaleaders Incredible Pharmaleaders 2013 Meet where more than 250 healthcare leaders will assemble to discuss healthcare reforms.

The rising need to continuously monitor and care for health has increased the global expenditure on healthcare services and products. The trend is also gradually pushing people towards home healthcare products and services, due to their cost efficiency and reliability. This, in turn, is driving the growth of the global home healthcare products and services market. The technological and application developments that have taken place in the home healthcare segment have made them more reliable and globally acceptable. It has also made it feasible for hospitals and patients to get early discharge, and minimize the cost and infrastructure pressures. The growth in certain diseases or medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, and other cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, which require continuous monitoring and care, are further driving the home healthcare market growth. Though the global share of the home healthcare equipment market is considerably less, it is growing at a faster CAGR of 9.9% from 2012 to 2018 due to rising technological innovations, especially in the field of home therapeutic equipment. The home healthcare services market, despite its large share, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2012 to 2018. The main deterrent, restricting the entry of organized players in this segment is dominance of a large number of small regional players, who are offering their services at low prices, and enjoy high customer loyalty. This has in turn, shifted the attention of big players towards the home healthcare equipment market.
