Due diligence (Hospital audit – infra, finance, operations) is an activity to look into the overall functioning of the hospital, with an emphasis on its financial health. This is one of the key indicators for buying or selling a functional or non-functional hospital. It can also be a diagnostics to look into the pilferages in a smooth functioning of the hospital with remarkably low revenue or margin.

We cross check the services offered and compare that to the business made. We also compare these indicators to industry standards to access the level of deviation.
We then discuss with the promoters to understand their future plan and application of funds. We then
