Business Sphere - - TATA STEEL - By Our Cor­re­spon­dent

As­tate of the art Bone Den­sit­o­m­e­try (DXA) ma­chine was in­au­gu­rated in the Depart­ment of Nu­clear Medicine, Tata Main Hospi­tal by Mr San­jiv Koul, Chair­man and MD, Timken In­dia in pres­ence of Mr Su­nil Bhaskaran, Vice Pres­i­dent, Cor­po­rate Ser­vices, Tata Steel. The event was or­gan­ised on Mon­day, 3rd April, 2017. The idea for es­tab­lish­ing the ma­chine was mooted and fully sup­ported by Mrs Rupa Ma­hanty, In­de­pen­dent Di­rec­tor, Timken In­dia. The ma­chine mea­sures bone min­eral den­sity ( BMD) and helps in the di­ag­no­sis of os­teo­poro­sis, a pro­gres­sive bone dis­ease re­sult­ing in weak­en­ing of bones and fre­quent frac­tures. Women are par­tic­u­larly prone to de­velop os­teo­poro­sis and In­dian women are fur­ther sus­cep­ti­ble to it due to poor nu­tri­tion. There are ap­prox­i­mately 0.26 DXA ma­chines per 1 mil­lion of the In­dian pop­u­la­tion and very few of these are based at the govern­ment hospi­tals, a fact which fur­ther lim­its pa­tient ac­cess. Air Mar­shal (Dr) Rajan Chaudhry (Retd), Gen­eral Man­ager (Med­i­cal Ser­vices), Tata Steel, said that the newly in­stalled DXA ma­chine will ful­fill a long stand­ing need in Jamshed­pur by of­fer­ing screen­ing and di­ag­nos­tic fa­cil­ity for women with sus­pected os­teo­poro­sis or for those on treatment and re­quir­ing fol­low up.

Ev­ery year, A C Niel­son con­ducts an ex­ten­sive sur­vey cov­er­ing the ser­vices pro­vided by JUSCO in the Tata Steel com­mand area to gauge the cit­i­zen's ex­pe­ri­ence and re­ac­tion on the ser­vices pro­vided. They compare the key data out­put with Chandigarh which in In­dia, has been con­sid­ered as a bench­mark. Typ­i­cally, the score in band 81- 84 has been re­garded as 'Good Per­for­mance' in Asia Pa­cific re­gion in the Util­ity Sec­tor. The po­si­tion of Jamshed­pur has been in this band for the last 8 years. This year, how­ever the cit­i­zens of Jamshed­pur have given the city a score of 92 which places the ser­vices pro­vided by JUSCO in 'Ex­cel­lent Band' - the top most band. Com­ment­ing on this achieve­ment, Mr. Ashish Mathur, M.D, JUSCO, thanked the JUSCO Board for its con­stant guid­ance and sup­port. Ac­cord­ing to him, “While Team JUSCO con­tin­ues to do the best pos­si­ble work, it is also con­scious of the fact that with this score, we have crossed the na­tional bench­mark and now, the only com­pe­ti­tion that we may have, will be from in­ter­na­tional arena but we are con­fi­dent to scale new heights fol­low­ing the strate­gic path of C - S - R (Con­sol­i­date - Strengthen - Re­spon­si­ble Growth)”.
