Mumbai: GOQii, one of the leading preventive healthcare platforms, unveiled its ‘GOQii India Fit’ 2018 report aimed at providing insights into the health and wellness habits of Indians. The report indicates the erosion of trust towards the various stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem. It also throws light on the air quality, fitness levels and lifestyle diseases prevalent in the country and the cities most affected by these factors. The report draws insights from data amongst 2 lakh GOQii users across the country.
As per the GOQii India Fit 2018 report, 92.3% of citizens do not trust the healthcare system in India which includes doctors, hospitals, pharma, insurance companies and diagnostic labs. Hospitals lead the chart with 74% Indians not trusting them followed by pharma companies (62.8%), insurance companies (62.8), medical clinics (52.6%), doctors (50.6%) and diagnostic labs (46.1%). The key reason for the erosion of trust is largely due to a series of failure in the healthcare system, particularly the negligence by hospitals in the recent past. In addition, lack of transparency also came out as the single biggest impediment to the healthcare system in India.
The GOQii Indiafit Report 2018 is based on data collated over the last one year from 200,000 subscribers of GOQii both male and female from across India’s 8 fitness conscious cities namely Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
