We are all aware that health – both globally and within India is a critical kingpin to overall national and global productivity. Healthy people/demography represent unprecedented productivity optimisation opportunities. Access, affordability and quality remain concerns that many economies – both developed as well as emerging – continue to grapple with.
Health has become the national aspiration today. Prime Minister Modi’s announcements about Ayushman Bharat have brought the spotlight to bear upon healthcare services, affordability and access like never before. Private Healthcare Industry members are going to be an integral part of delivering services under NHPS along with Public providers across the country. While we enter an exciting new phase, we need to be prepared for the challenges too.
India is also seeing the emergence of the informed and empowered health consumer, more engaged, discerning and value conscious. Are we ready to give them a seamless and valuable experience?
Are we at a tipping point in HealthTech today? Will we see disruptive models emerging from health Start-ups, m-health, technology adoption in Diagnostics & medical technology, digital health and research in genomics?
Above all, can we improve patient experience through shared knowledge and collaboration?
These, and more topics will take centerstage at the Confederation of Indian industry (CII)’s annual flagship 15th India Health Summit with theme Indian Healthcare – A Changing Paradigm– scheduled for 29 - 30 November 2018 at Le Meridien in New Delhi.
We are excited to announce our knowledge partnership with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, USA. Their best faculty will be in our midst, and will provoke conversations around Healthcare of the future.
This edition of the summit comes at a very propitious time – public and private health are converging beautifully, and we have a unique opportunity to all the key players in the sector together, to sensitize them to the very real challenges that confront us, and to find ways to engage constructively, and arrive at lasting solutions.
The summit is our platform to have a conversation with the Government, various regulatory agencies and with healthcare professionals in the private and public sector at large, so that we drive agreement on the contributions the private sector has made, and will continue to make to nation-building, and the unshackling it needs to truly achieve its potential. Through this Summit, we hope to inspire unique collaborations , previously un - thought of partnerships which can help build an ecosystem around Health .
