FICCI Heal 2017

Conference Theme: “Indian Healthcare: A Patient’s View”

India is already witnessing the emergence of an informed, engaged and empowered patient, rightly called the healthcare consumer. This has happened not just with the shift in technology but also due to societal and cultural shifts that are driving changing expectations as well as the realization of an increasing burden of the costs of care. Over 63 million persons are faced with poverty every year in India due to healthcare costs alone. 

Consumers have also been experiencing a growth in healthcare options with increase in health care infrastructure and better distribution, especially in urban areas, where the hospital bed density per 1,000 persons is estimated to have increased from 2.26 to 2.77 in the last decade. This has also given them the power to choose.

In the coming years, transformative market forces, coupled with rapid advances in digital technologies, will further place the consumer at the center of an increasingly virtualized, personalized and delocalized healthcare system.

Healthcare organizations in India need to respond and adapt to this transformation in order to thrive in the new digital economy. This will require successfully engaging the healthcare consumer through business models based on quality of outcomes, digitized processes that address consumer demands for product customization and more informed care decisions.

FICCI HEAL 2017 is an endeavor to bring the perspective of a patient or the healthcare consumer to the forefront. The conference, its 11th edition, will provide a platform to enable a two-way communication between patients and healthcare providers through its unique sessions and hence help foster a relationship of trust amongst them. The deliberations will help in paving a path for the transformation required in our healthcare ecosystem and facilitate the healthcare stakeholders to adapt to the growing trend of patient centricity.
