Industry analysis of Apollo hospital Health care Industry in India
In India, the Healthcare system is split into a public sector, a private sector and a wide network of informal healthcare providers operating together in a large and unregulated network. This irregularity has caused wide disparities in access, especially in regional and rural distribution of healthcare infrastructure. Currently, the Indian healthcare sector is valued at Rs.1, 360 (US $34) billion roughly 6 per cent of GDP. The healthcare business is projected to grow to over Rs.1, 600 (US $40) billion or 8.5 per cent of GDP by 2012, according to Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) report, 'Healthcare in India: Emerging market report 2007'.

Apollo

...Over the course of American history few things have captured Americans’ hearts and imaginations the way that the Apollo moon missions have. Neil Armstrong’s famous quote, “That’s one small step for a man. One giant leap for mankind”, is as synonymous with American culture as apple pie or baseball. Armstrong’s moonwalk was the pride of his home country and fascinated people across the globe. This was not the only event from the lunar missions to seize the world’s collective attention. On April 11, 1970 NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) launched the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission, also known as Odyssey (Journey Through the Galaxy). About two and a half days after take-off Apollo 13 experienced an explosion to an oxygen tank which then led to many systems’ failure and put the lives of the crew on board in danger (Dumoulin). The other famous quote from these lunar missions was born when Jack Swigert, the command module pilot, radioed in to report, “Houston, we’ve had a problem here.” (Dumoulin). While these two incidents made heroes out of men, the less talked about discoveries made from the Apollo missions are truly remarkable. Scientists were able to study information gathered and form new theories on how and what formed the moon. In addition to that, the technologies involved in getting men to the moon and allowing them to explore led to innovations used here on Earth. During the early 1960’s America was locked in a bitter cold war with the Soviet......

Yes Apollo Madras provide superior value to its customers, share holders and employees.Apollo has well designed service system and it is a breakthrough organization. Apollo’s greatest strength is the first mover advantage. They were among the pioneers in setting up quality private hospitals in India. Since they were able to provide world class medical service at affordable rates, this became a value for customers. Government also helped them eventually by getting rid of many financial and regulatory obstacles. Liberalization of private sector was a boon. Apollo were good pay masters as far India was concerned and this enabled them to attract talent. Doctors who wanted to come back to their country of origin were more than happy to join Apollo. The hospital imported latest equipments and had a good success rate. By using sound marketing, they were able to build a brand name very quickly. The successful surgery of Vice-President of India was a major break through for them in brand building. India’s growing middle class were the target segment for Apollo Hospitals.

Also they had little or no competition in Chennai especially from the poorly managed Government hospitals. Apollo was......

Greek God of Sun: Apollo

...The Twelve Olympian gods wouldn’t be complete without Apollo, god of the sun, music, poetry, healing, prophecy, archery, disease (mostly death-dealing plagues), purification, and a defender of all herds and flocks. His many symbols are the chariot, the kithara/lyre (a gift he received from Hermes), the laurel tree, and mice, ones who are suppose to help him with his prophecies. He is the son of Zeus and Letos, along with his twin sister, Artemis. In art, he is portrayed as being a very attractive and beardless man with golden, curly hair. He is frequently shown holding a lyre or a bow. I chose to do this project on him because one of my favorite songs talks about the infamous story behind Apollo and Daphne. I’m very curious about this Greek god and the myth as well. After being born on the Island of Delos in Asia Minor, Apollo traveled to Delphi. He was originally there to pick laurels, but little did he know that the place was already inhabited by Gaea and her son, Pythia. This is the beginning of the well-known myth, Delphi: Oracle of Apollo… When Apollo found out that Pythia lived in Delphi, he instantly slay him, for Apollo thought that Pythia had raped Letos when she was pregnant with him and Artemis. Even though it wasn’t proven whether that was really true, Apollo was still severely punished because Pythia was the son of Gaea, Mother Earth. Therefore, Apollo was forced to do eight, long years of menial tasks. Despite this, he later claimed Delphi as his own and......

Apollo Case

...1996 Apollo Hospitals of India (A) Dr. Prathap Reddy's office was filled with flowers. The tags conveyed birthday greetings from employees of Apollo Hospitals Madras and former patients, including the vice president of India. Reddy greeted a steady parade of well-wishers and paused to chat warmly by telephone with a former janitor who had called from the United States. Throughout the day, employees greeted “the Chairman” with smiles, hugs, and gifts. Dr. Reddy had founded Apollo Hospitals Madras in 1983 as the first corporate hospital in India. It offered sophisticated treatment in a comprehensive range of medical specialties. Stateof-the-art medical technology, operated by skilled technicians, complemented superior doctors, many of whom had left lucrative jobs in Europe and North America to come to Apollo. Other entrepreneurs had followed Apollo into the market, building several dozen corporate hospitals to compete with Apollo and its government-run forerunners. Since Apollo’s founding, the quality of medical care in India had improved substantially for those who could pay. Despite competition, though, Apollo Hospitals Madras remained a leader in the provision of top-quality medical care and had made a profit for 10 straight years. Reddy had been joined at Apollo by his four daughters, who took prominent roles in the company. Having introduced a new form of medical business to India, the family entered 1995 hoping to expand the availability of......

Apollo 13

...Apollo 13 Essay Apollo 13 was one of the most terrifying and suspenseful events that happened in history. Directors and authors try their best to create an environment where the reader or viewer can feel they were there when it happened. The author or director creates suspense in many ways. In text the author may use descriptions, vivid verbs, phrases that cause fear, and frightening facts. In movies, directors can create suspense by using music, different angles with camera shots, lighting, and characters emotions. In the book “The Race to Save Apollo 13” the author Michael Useem created suspense in multiple ways. One of those ways he created suspense was the phrases that would cause fear. One of the phrases is when Kranz was on the phone with Chris Kraft “…It seems there’s been an explosion.” This phrase creates suspense because it’s not specifically telling the reader what happened. It also makes the reader wonder what will happen next. In the movie, Apollo 13 directed by Ron Howard, there are different ways of how suspense was created. When astronaut Lovell tells Houston “there is something leaking into space”, the director used camera angles to create suspense. Ron Howard, the director, used a camera shot that showed the oxygen leaking into space. This makes the viewer be on the edge of their seat because they will want to know what will happen next. At both of these parts the author and director used different techniques to keep drawling in their audience. Another......

Apollo 13 Review

...Throughout the Movie Apollo 13, the stages of group development were applied. Forming the first stage of group development. Was prevalent early in the movie when the crew first found out that they were supposed to be on the Apollo 13 mission there was a bit of confusion among the crew and their families. The crew had to work with each other and learn each others strengths and weaknesses, this was most noticeably displayed while the crew was practicing in the flight simulator. Not long after the initial formation of the group pilot Ken mattingly was forced to be removed from the crew due to possible medical problems, he was replaced by Jack Swigert. This reform caused a setback and the crew had to relearn each others strength and weaknesses. Storming , the second stage of group development, really began after the crew had successfully launched into space and then began having problems. The storming began when one of the engines went out forcing the crew to continue with only 4. Not long after that the connection on one of the oxygen tanks had burst. Which caused a landslid of other problems for th crew. The crew began getting frustrated and started blaming each other for the problems that were happening. Jack Swigert seemed to get the most of this blame. The Crew eventually collected themselves and began the process of Norming. Instead of......

Apollo Space Emergency

...number 13 is an unlucky number but the space program didn’t depend on luck. There were many American astronauts that went to the moon in Apollo 11 and 12. The mission began on April 11, 1997 Apollo 13 lifted off at 2:13pm from the launch pad in Cape Kennedy in Florida. It was an hour earlier at mission control in Houston (Cole 5). Lovell and Haise were supposed to land on the moon in an area named the Fra Mauro uplands. The Fra Mauro uplands were the site of a huge meteor crater near the moons equator. They were trying to see if that meteor millions of years ago had blew samples out of the moons insides. They wanted to get samples of the moon. Earth’s orbit had to put on a route to make it to the moon in three days (Cole 6-8). For the next two days the flight was going along very well then suddenly they heard a very loud bang on the spacecraft. The oxygen in the tanks was also used to react with hydrogen in the ships fuel cells. The energy produced by this chemical reaction within the fuel cells which provided all the electrical power in the craft 2 out of 3 fuel cells had shutdown. Mission control was working on the plan to get them down safely (Cole 10-12). Mission control realized that there must be oxygen leaving from the spacecraft. This escaping gas was causing enough power to push Apollo 13 off the route. Engineers began calculating course correction that would have been made later. It took the astronauts a......

Apollo 13 Film Analysis

...Woodhouse 1 Kevin Woodhouse Mrs. DeWitt College Comp. 26/3/15 Determination The film, Apollo 13, is based on the real life crisis that occurred April 13, 1970, on board the Apollo spacecraft. After spending eight days in the freezing confinement of the Apollo 13 space capsule Jim Lovell and his crew members, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert, splashed down into the Pacific Ocean. This team achieved their goals through several adverse conditions. The survival of these three is the embodiment of achieving goals through determination. Determination is expressed through each character throughout the suspenseful film. Jack Swigert had the job of docking and flying the shuttle and did not want to leave any room for error in his skills. Ken Mattingly spent hours and hours working on the flight simulator to assure a safe return. The NASA team of engineers had to work together to come up with a device to filter CO2 made from spare parts found on the shuttle. Jack Swigert was moved up from backup crew to main crew after Ken Mattingly was exposed to the measles virus and was unable to gear up for the flight. Swigert had a lot of experience but did not have the same connection to the team as Mattingly had. Swigert was determined to carry out the flight despite those who were skeptical about Woodhouse 2 his skills. He spent endless hours perfecting the take off and flight functions and gained the trust of his crew members. Resulting in a successful launch. Despite the error...

Group Dynamics Apollo 13

...GE347 Group dynamics are important to achieving a set of goals set forth by a group of individuals. Groups follow a course of cohesion and function. Research has been done to understand group dynamics. One of the most accepted models is that of Bruce Tuckman. His research shows groups follow a set path of Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing. The movie Apollo 13 gives several examples of Tuckman’s model. In this essay we will follow Jim Lovell and his steps in group dynamics through out the movie. When the movie begins you can see that there is a barbeque going on at Jim Lovell’s house. You could draw the conclusion that Jim has worked with the others before at some point. This is where the forming begins Jim invites other astronauts over to watch the first landing on the moon. All of these men have a common goal, which is going to the moon. This is also Jim’s interpersonal need to be around others who want to go to the moon as well. The next phase is the storming phase. We know that people don’t always get along in groups. One great example of this is when Jim, Fred and Ken are in the simulator running case scenarios. They are done with the last case scenario in the simulator Jim and Fred are ready to go home. Ken tells them that he wants to run it again. Jim and Fred think that they should go home and rest that they will have time another day to practice to get it perfect. Because of Jims individual goal, getting to the moon he gives into Ken’s request to do......
