KUALA LUMPUR: Almost 80% of patients seeking treatment at the National Heart Institute (IJN) are public patients, and it certainly does not lean towards profit-driven private care, says IJN CEO Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Azhari Yakub (pic).

Some 370,000 patients sought treatment at IJN last year, with 18,000 seeking inpatient treatment, 4,000 heart surgeries and 10,000 cardiology procedures (such as angiogram and stenting), and 80% of the patients were public patients, he said.
