With the increased focus on intelligent mediums capable of increasing performance & decreasing cost, new trends & business models are emerging worldwide. These disruptions are forcing Indian healthcare stakeholders to rethink the visions of the past to build new visions of the future. To achieve new milestones, such as convenience, cost-effective services, etc., in the healthcare, we need to become part of the evolutionary journey of innovation.
eHEALTH Magazine as a firm believer in the saying that Science is no illusion believes that only curiosity can catalyse the spirit of innovation & invention. In the absence of innovations, we will become chained to a system that continues to be inadequate and inefficient. As a result, Indian healthcare stakeholders can in no case afford to sit over the fence, rather need to be the real innovators by playing in the field to know t he rule of the games. With the progressive leadership around, Indian policymakers have exhibited positive mindset towards experimental models & platforms and are more than willing to persevere to introduce regulatory reforms, as well as encourage new collaborations & partnerships, to address invisible & visible roadblocks to allow innovators to enter the real playground.
The August issue to be launched at the first-of-its-kind Smart Healthcare Conclave, 2016 offers an opportunity to catch a glimpse of high-end technologies that target the contemporary challenges of any emerging markets, such as increased air pollution, lack of scientifically designed assessment tools to narrow down the right candidates in the medical field, high-end technologies with world-class design elements to streamline workflow, etc. Undoubtedly, these technologies can propel the entire vision of smart healthcare in the positive direction.
In order to assist the healthcare stakeholders in becoming part of this entire journey, eHEALTH Magazine as the voice of the healthcare sector has put in serious efforts to comprehend the ins and outs of other relevant debates around medical devices and inclusion of stents in the National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM) to encourage lively debates and improve arguments to undertake sound decisions.
We close the reflection on the note that innovations and moral responsibility towards larger goals will define Smart Healthcare. We look forward to participation of decision-makers and other stakeholders at Smart Healthcare Conclave scheduled on August 12 to further comprehend the concept.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled. – Plutarch
