Today, the Health Minister of Health and Family Welfare of India Inaugurated the second edition of FE Health Summit.
Keynote was delivered by the Health Secretary of India emphasizing the scaling of primary health care, healthcare programs, and digital health initiatives by the government of India.
Dr Tarang Gianchandani, CEO, Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital, Dr Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, MD & CEO, Fortis Healthcare, and Dr Anurag Agarwal, Dean (Biosciences), Ashoka University, will present “Building the new Healthcare Ecosystem: Scalable yet Personalized” at the FE Healthcare Summit 2022. E Kumar Sharma, FE Digital’s deputy editor, will moderate.
Innovative healthcare delivery is the new norm in the healthcare ecosystem. Providing healthcare to all is a fundamental issue. Healthcare is the fastest-growing industry in India. As one of the largest industries in the country, which services nearly all of the ever-growing population, it contributes significantly to the expansion of the economy and generates employment possibilities. The Indian healthcare business was valued at over INR 17 trillion in 2020 and is projected to increase at a CAGR of approximately 30 percent between 2021 and 2026, reaching INR 81.30 trillion by 2026.
During COVID-19, the rapid digitization and emphasis on tele-access in healthcare have enabled previously disadvantaged persons to gain access to high-quality healthcare services. In addition, the Covid-19 epidemic significantly pushed the adoption of health technology. It served as a springboard for Indian businesses to produce affordable and high-quality healthcare for all Indians, advancing the notion that great healthcare is a human right. Creating health equity through data, openness, and accountability remains a distant goal despite significant progress. To take the next step, improved data and analysis from both public health systems and private sector activities are required. The Indian healthcare system requires a patient-centric, technologically-enabled ecosystem. The focus of the Second Edition of the FE Healthcare Summit will be on bringing quality healthcare to the masses in the most cost-effective manner possible, without sacrificing quality.
