Multidiscip. Res. Healthcare) is an Official Publication of Chitkara University. It is an international journal published annually and is available in the online and print versions.</p> <p>Healthcare service delivery depends on teamwork between a diverse range of healthcare professionals working in the best interest of the patient as an interdisciplinary team. The Journal of Multidisciplinary Research in Healthcare (J. Multidiscip. Res. Healthcare) aims to serve all those directly involved in or concerned with, the organization, service delivery, marketing, and management of healthcare services, at a strategic, clinical and operational level. It strives to delineate and disseminate research in healthcare areas delivered by practitioners of diverse disciplines. The specialty could be cardiology, nephrology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, obstetrics, orthopedics, or even primary or secondary health care but it is the group of medical professionals- the doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, the optometrists who work together as one. Healthcare providers exist in an unsettled political and social environment with intensifying demands being placed on them to pursue quality, equality, efficiency, responsiveness, and affordability. It is the need of the hour to provide a peer-reviewed forum for the publication of discussion, briefings, case studies, expert comment, applied research, and analysis on the key issues affecting the entire facet of this sector.</p> <p><strong>The journal is dedicated to the brisk publication of research focussed on but not restricted to:</strong></p> <ul class="list3"> <li class="show">Hospital Outreach</li> <li class="show">Healthcare Innovation</li> <li class="show">Health IT</li> <li class="show">Health Insurance</li> <li class="show">Leadership Assessment</li> <li class="show">Lean Six Sigma</li> <li class="show">Quality management (clinical/administrative), benchmarking and TQM in Healthcare</li> <li class="show">Managerial Innovation</li> <li class="show">Healthcare-related compliance and behavior</li> <li class="show">Efficient delivery of services</li> <li class="show">Public Community</li> <li class="show">Disease Management</li> <li class="show">Healthcare Marketing</li> </ul> <p>The Journal's content addresses the diverse spectrum of disciplines that healthcare services draw upon and we welcome submission from practitioners at all levels and from all over the world.</p> </div> Chitkara University en-US Journal of Multidisciplinary Research in Healthcare 2393-8536 <div class="archives">&nbsp;</div> <div class="about_jorunal_content"> <p>Journal of Multidisciplinary Research in Healthcare (J.

Correct diagnosis of tuberculosis is the main challenge for control of tuberculosis. World health organization has prioritized improving diagnostic guidelines and tests for TB diagnosis. Priority has been given for development of new Tuberculosis diagnostic methods. But diagnosis of Tuberculosis highly affected by quality specimen collected which has been given less attention. The aim of this is to assess Yielding accuracy of morning and spot sputum samples for diagnosis Mycobacterium tuberculosis using Gene Xpert Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTB)/Rifampicin Resistance (RIF).<br><strong>Methodology:</strong> Cross sectional study was conducted and convenient sampling technique used to select participants. Checklists used to collect the data from April 1 to May 30, 2018 G.C. A total of two hundred twenty two (222) sputum samples from 111 suspected tuberculosis patients were analyzed using Gene Xpert MTB/RIF Assay. SPSS version 20 was used for statistical analysis. Results: From 111 TB suspected patients, 55.9% were male and the rest of 44.1% was female. In terms of sample quality, 81.1% morning sputum samples and 79.3% spot sputum samples were had good sample quality. The outcomes of the research show an increase in odds value in sputum quality and sputum consistency for TB diagnosis. But, the relation is not significant association<br>with TB positivity.<br><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Based on the results of this study, the diagnosis of TB using spot sputum samples as well as using morning sputum samples is almost similar for detection of MTB by Gene Xpert MTB/RIF Assay. Physical Quality of sputum sample or consistency is not association with TB positivity using Gene Xpert MTB/RIF Assay. <br><strong>Results:</strong> From 111 TB suspected patients, 55.9% were male and the rest of 44.1% was female.

The area is lagging behind in water and waste management infrastructure. This is due to the fact that Delhi is recording high growth rate of population mostly through in-migration over the year which is taxing much upon the existing water resources and the provisions made for water supply. Consequently demand is higher than supply of the safe drinking water. The consumption of unsafe drinking water is therefore increasing and is causing serious health problems among the fellow residents of NCT of Delhi. These health problems are basically related to the digestive as well as excretory systems of the human body. These disorders are promoting mortality particularly among those segments of population which do not have access to potable drinking water. This paper is therefore a modest attempt towards examining the population growth rate and the scenarios of demand and supply for potable water as well as the overall water related intestinal infections and related mortality at present and their future occurrence. This requires synergy between the different sectors of the state to overcome the problem. of intestinal infection diseases in the region.</p> Swati Bidhuri Mohd Mazhar Ali Khan Tanveer Ahmad Divya Rani Vaishnav Faizan sarwar Copyright (c) 2020 Swati Bidhuri et al. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-07-17 2020-07-17 6 1 7 14 10.15415/jmrh.2019.61002
