Sat, 08 Feb 10:30 AM - 11:15 AMTransforming the Indian Healthcare System from Policy to Implementation Session

The Indian Healthcare system is largely led by the private sectorwith the government being a key investor rather than a caretaker. This hasresulted in numerous challenges for the healthcare sector including negligibleinvestment in research & development, regulatory hindrances in drug testingand patent registration, unaffordable medication for the majority of thepopulation, and a business-first care model.


Recently, Kerala has introduced a comprehensive healthcare policycatering to the needs of the state. From fostering primary care facilities toeducating people on preventive care, the patient-centric policy places theState’s healthcare sector in line with many of the world’s developed economies.Here we look at what needs to happen to ensure the policy and vision getsuccessfully fulfilled:

  • Vision toimplementation: how will the policy be implemented on ground? What levels ofpartnerships and approaches are required to ensure compliance at all levels?

  • Does the policycover provide care and accessibility for all? How is the State policy differentfrom the Centre’s healthcare policy? What can be improved? 
  • How does thispolicy impact small hospitals and clinics run by independent doctors? Why arethese independent clinics important?
  • How is the policyfurthering Kerala’s vision for Healthcare Digitisation? What kind of changescan we expect from the policy in the coming years?

Sat, 08 Feb 11:45 AM - 12:15 PMDriving Change at Grassroot Level: Using the Kerala Model to Deliver Advanced Care Facilities at Ground Zero Session

The healthcare landscape in India has evolved tremendously overthe years, with significantly remarkable success stories. However, the lack ofeffective public policy has resulted in the private sector leading majority ofthis growth and advancement. Whilst the private sector dominates healthcare inthe urban areas, the state of healthcare in rural areas, where a majority ofthe population resides, remains tragically neglected.

Kerala has one of the most advanced healthcare systems in thecountry. Driven by excellent public-private partnerships, and patient-carefocused policies, Kerala is increasingly becoming a medical tourism destinationfor patients within India and abroad. This session explores:

  •  Public-PrivatePartnerships: Apollo Hospital & the State Government of Kerala arefostering a unique partnership to revive primary healthcare centre's damagedduring the 2018 floods. How are such partnerships enabling growth of thehealthcare sector in the state? How will this help patients? How can start-ups andSMEs contribute to this growth?

  • The healthcarenetwork in Kerala is vastly spread providing quality healthcare to its peoplein remote and urban areas. How can we scale up healthcare accessibility acrossthe country learning from the Kerala model?
  • The Indian home healthcare market is estimatedto reach US$ 6.21 billion by 2020. How is Kerala leveraging technology toprovide home healthcare accessibility to all? How will this further enhance theState’s existing healthcare network?
