OCHRI was represented in this Global Conclave by Dr Vidya Nair, Director, Ravi Nair Hospitals Private Limited. After partaking in this prestigious summit, she stated that she got a good insight into the Indian Health Care sector. She highlighted that the changing climate within the sector was palpable as the topics of discussion involved Universal health care to SMART hospitals and how with innovation we can decrease the hospital costs. As much change is not easy, it is inevitable she added.

Indian healthcare is passing through critical phase. There is growing perception that healthcare is unduly expensive. Alongside there is an increasing awareness and demand for the patient safety and quality of care. The healthcare is also becoming an election agenda. That brings proactive push for reforms by the government. All these factors pose serious challenge to healthcare providers, who will be required to constantly keep innovating and do fine balancing act. The increase in demand on private sector would be coupled with complying with regulatory and patient safety norms. It is in this perspective that Association of Healthcare Providers (India) had chosen the theme for its Global Conclave I.e. Affordable & Safe ‘Health for All’ through collaborative efforts of Hospitals, Pharmaceuticals, IT and Medical Equipment companies. AHPI believes that ‘Health for All’ can only be realized through collaborative approach involving all Stake holders. The conclave took a holistic view of composite issues and tried to present practical solutions to meet with the emerging challenges.
