Listen On Goodpods

By  Datuk Amir Firdaus Abdullah

We applaud the recently announced 2023 Budget theme quoted Developing Malaysia Madani by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s administration.
It was announced that the Health Ministry would receive an allocation of RM36.3 billion to strengthen our healthcare services.
We recognise that Malaysia’s public healthcare has its challenges, faced with numerous pressures such as overburdened emergency units, long wait times for patients, shortage of specialists, and skyrocketing medical costs.
To help shoulder the burden, we believe that public-private partnerships are essential in improving Malaysia’s healthcare system and even propelling the country’s reputation as a hub for world-class healthcare services to greater heights.
Aurelius Healthcare believes that through public-private partnerships (PPP), we can provide underserved communities in Malaysia with more accessible and potentially affordable healthcare services.
Through such partnerships, there are several approaches to capping healthcare fees in order to assist the currently overburdened public healthcare system.
With capped medical fees, patients will have access to resources such as advanced treatments, skilled consultants and better facilities.
This aligns with Aurelius Healthcare’s commitment to consistently deliver quality healthcare and provide equitable medical solutions for practitioners and patients.
