Critical medical care for patients suffering from non-communicable diseases, like cardio-vascular diseases, is a growing concern for India. According to a reputed medical journal Lancet, over 60 per cent of the worlds heart patients will soon be found in India.
However, another way to look at this huge challenge is to find ways to increase heart care in the country. It is in this context that a huge opportunity lies ahead for cardiology and ECG manufacturers in the country. Our cover story, Cardiology and ECG Equipment — The Unfolding Future Growth Potential, in the June issue of eHealth magazine, attempts to find out potential areas of growth for the industry, even as it revisits the challenges ahead.
In the last two decades, the medical tourism and wellness sector have evolved as the leading sectors of the Indian economy with a considerable contribution to the national income, trade, investment and employment. Our special feature, Medical Tourism — Making India Global Wellness Hub, discusses the multi-faceted contribution by the sector in detail and why the country needs to utilise one of its biggest inherent strengths to raise its share in global healthcare market.
High on innovation, a rising demand and rejuvenated confidence to translate opportunities into success, the Indian pharmaceutical industry, which is among the top three in terms of volume globally, is growing in leaps and bounds. However, much of this growth will depend on Indian pharma companies capacity to adopt Information Technology to drive their productivity and improve efficiency.
Keeping in view increased digital adoption by the pharma industry, we recently organised Pharma CIO Symposium in Mumbai in April with an aim to bring synergy to this growth process. Emerging as an ideal platform for CIOs and other industry stakeholders across organisations, the symposium helped to bring more clarity on opportunities and challenges. This latest issue of eHealth magazine carries a detailed conference report to help our readers gain useful insights from the leaders of the industry.
As part of our endeavour to create a knowledge-sharing platform for the Indian healthcare industry to meet, discuss, deliberate and decide on the future road map for the industry, we are organising the 7th Healthcare Leaders Forum in Delhi on June 30.
We look forward to seeing you there and be a part of the ongoing revolution in health space that is geared to make delivery of health services more affordable, accessible and inclusive.
