Private and healthcare providers to collaborate?

The Star Online

KUALA LUMPUR: In an effort to make healthcare services more accessible to patients nationwide, the Health Ministry is considering collaborating with private healthcare providers.
Its Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniamsaid on Thursday the ministry was thinking about how patients could be treated at private hospitals as well.
"We are exploring the concept of collaboration with the private sector but it will also depend on whether they can accept our cost," he said during his first visit to KL Hospital.
On whether the Ministry would consider the private sector's request for them to be incorporated and collaborate in providing healthcare services for the 1Malaysia Clinic, Subramaniam said the Ministry would re-visit the details of the request to find conclusion to the issue now that he has taken over the Ministry.
