GURUGRAM: Aimed at ensuring quality healthcare and fixing accountability of doctors, the Haryana Government appears poised to implement the central Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010, by the end of this month.

The move, officials say, is aimed at controlling cost of treatment in private hospitals and fixing accountability in case of negligence.

The state government officials claimed rules were being finalized for strict execution of the Act that will introduce a cap on prices of various treatments at all charitable and private institutes with more than 50-beds capacity.

Officials said that nearly 200 hospitals,  which would eventually come under the Act, are based in Gurugram and Faridabad.

The move comes in the wake of a number of cases of private hospitals being accused of overcharging and negligence during the last one year.

“The Haryana government is serious about implementing the Act. The rules are being framed and will be implemented soon,” said Dr Aditya Chaudhari, additional director-general of health services.

The Act has been implemented in many states including Sikkim, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Assam and all Union Territories except Delhi — till December 18, 2017.

The Haryana Assembly passed the Haryana Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Adoption Bill, 2018 in March 2018 paving the way for implementation of the central Act, albeit with some modifications, to provide quality healthcare across the state.

Under the Act, a district registration authority will be formed that will register all charitable and private institutes and will have the power to inspect them.
