Theme: Future of Healthcare: Globalization, Local Innovations and You
Befriending Technology to Enhance Healthcare Efficiency
The cooperation between people and technology can result in significant achievements. In healthcare, technology can remove a lot of inefficiency and waste from the system. Essentially, the need is great, and the time is ripe, to use technology to improve transitions of care, and advance provider-provider and provider-patient communication. This session will discuss how to develop a big data analytics road map for translating new strategies like artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics, eConsults and telehealth technology, to bring meaningful actionable results to enhance health care efficiency and how it can be used to supplement the primary care environment and increase access to care.
Value based Healthcare and Tackling Price Transparency
Patient-centric care is emerging as a central topic in healthcare. Several policy and programmatic interventions have begun around patient’s care-pathway focusing on providing value. However, there are several challenges in achieving this. The first major challenge is, the meaning of value for patients varies widely among stakeholders in healthcare. Further, not every patient has access to the same treatment for the same health problem. Second challenge is accomplishing quality care delivery in terms of patient outcomes across public and private healthcare facilities. In the recent past, various pricing regulations and policies have been made to make the healthcare accessible to all. However, the concern is around how hospitals, pharmaceutical and medical device companies should work towards healthcare price transparency and compliance with regulations. This session will discuss how value-based healthcare can impact pricing transparency.
Health and Well-being: New Directions to Preventive Healthcare
For too long, the health care industry has been focused on curative healthcare. However, this approach has certain limitations. It is neither the most optimal nor cost-effective for the patient. This session will focus on two key interventions of health and well-being. First is about the impact of public health literacy on health perception and preventive health behavior. Second is how mindfulness can promote healthy body through a healthy mind.
Purpose-driven Innovations and Start-Up for Health Impact
Majority of the business leaders believe that an organization’s purpose is central to business success. Purpose-driven innovations and startup have potential to attract the best minds, have the most passionate customers, achieve success and change the world. If the purpose and passion are combined, the impact is significant not only on the targeted customers but also on the citizens, creating a healthier future while contributing to the development of the economy. This session will focus on how purpose-driven innovative solutions and start-up companies accelerate the improvement of coverage, reach, efficiency, and effectiveness of healthcare.
Invigorating Rural India: Strategies for Effective Implementation of SDG 2030
An increasing emphasis is being placed on the multisectoral approach to sustainable rural development. It seeks to achieve synergy between development drivers such as energy, health, education, water, food, gender and economic growth. This session will discuss effective rural policies and practices, enabling access and quality interventions (for example, WASH-N) and innovative models through Public-Private-Partnerships to achieve Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
Accessibility, Affordability, Acceptability: 3A’s of Basic Services for Healthcare
These 3A’s are the pillars of healthcare. Despite significant investment and interventions on the 3A’s, the primary challenges of healthcare remain the same in low- and middle-income countries. For instance, inadequate public health infrastructure, insufficient specialists’ care, negligible penetration of health care insurance, and limited basic health awareness. This session will discuss key learnings and best practices targeted to 3A’s that can be scaled up in the resource constrained settings. The focus will be on how various stakeholders of the health care ecosystem, i.e. Patients, Providers, Payors, and Policymakers, can bring highly effective and efficient care to all.
