We congratulate the Indian Medical Association for being advocates on behalf of patients and families. IMA has taken a clear stand, which will reduce treatment cost and benefit all, irrespective of their income. The essential elements of IMA’s suggestion are

  • doctors must give attention to the cost of medicines
  • doctors must write names of medicines legibly in capital letters
  • doctors must write the generic name first
  • doctors must look for the least expensive brand, and  prescribe them

One response to “Well done, IMA!”

  1. Dr KMMishra MD FRCP says:

    This is right direction for improving patient care, will be difficult to regulate . Never the less well began is half done, congratulations to IMA for patient centric step forward.
