Abstract

This is a review aimed towards the current scenario of health care system in India with respect to the approach of Indian doctors towards the use of generics for a convenient and cost effective healthcare which is a major concern for all Indian citizens and this scenario should get clear for the betterment of Indian patient and the overall healthcare scenario in India. We can say the health care system is four tare system consisting doctors, patients, pharmacist and medicines, so there is a need to establish a significant relation between these four systems for a better health care facility in the country. In this review we have analyzed the Indian doctor’s perception status towards generic medicines, a patient’s feedback status towards generic medicines and from the side of pharmacist in dispensing generics medicines in India. We found that a major part of this system is running out of track and if it remains unsolved an Indian patient can’t expect a cost effective and efficient health services in future.
