patient care with the application of financial and operational controls. We are involved in continual development activities for the benefit of our existing facility. Quality and Efficiency of Services Having, recognised the critical role of technology in healthcare since inception, from diagnosis to treatment, for speed, accuracy and sometimes making what is deemed impossible possible; the company will continue to make significant investments in the latest of technology and remain in the forefront of healthcare sector. We will be following technologically advanced treatment methods to increase the number of procedures done at AHRI and to make these procedures affordable to the general public. We are responding to this trend by emphasizing the expansion of outpatient services. In addition, in response to cost containment pressures, we continue to implement programs at our facilities designed to improve financial performance and efficiency while continuing to provide quality care, including more efficient use of professional and Para medical staff, monitoring and adjusting staffing levels and equipment usage, improving patient management and reporting procedures and implementing more efficient billing and collection procedures.

Also we are continuously extending our services to other healthcare facilities and cases are referred to AHRI. Hospital Utilization As a provider of Healthcare, we are always and acutely aware that being engaged in an essential service that directly impact lives, underscores the need for not just the integration of sustainable practices but a sustainable mindset that permeates the entire organization.


Annual Report 2012-2013

Thus, a sustainability strategy and approach for the Company, and initiating action, receives priority at the highest level of the organization. We believe that the most important factors relating to the overall utilization of a hospital include the quality and market position of the hospital and the number, quality and specialties of physicians providing patient care within the facility. Since inception, the hospital has structured its operations to ensure that it fulfils its economic, environmental and societal responsibilities in a fair and transparent manner. Generally, we believe that the ability of a hospital to meet the health care needs of its community is determined by its breadth of services, level of technology, emphasis on quality of care and convenience for patients and physicians. Other factors that affect utilization include general and local economic conditions, market penetration of managed care programs, the degree of outpatient use, availability of reimbursement programs such as health insurance, and demographic changes such as the growth in local populations. Utilization across the industry also is being affected by improvements in clinical practice, medical technology and pharmacology. In addition, hospital operations are subject to certain seasonal fluctuations. Ability to recruit and retain quality physicians. Typically, physicians are responsible for making hospital admissions decisions and for directing the course of patient treatment. As a result, the success and competitive advantage of our hospitals depends, in part, on the number and quality of the physicians on the medical staffs of our hospitals, the admiing practices of those physicians and our maintenance of good relations with those physicians. If we are unable to provide high ethical and professional standards, adequate support personnel or technologically advanced equipment and facilities that meet the needs of those physicians, they may be discouraged from referring patients to our facilities and our results of operations may decline.
