News Corp VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit, Sept 2017
Is India's healthcare challenge an opportunity for investors?
Healthcare sector in India, which according to some estimates was a $100 billion industry in 2015, is likely to become a $280 billion market by 2020. This impressive growth will primarily come on account of increasing demand for better healthcare services from a growing middle class that is increasingly become more aware and demanding, and also has access to resources to service its needs. A large part of the growth will also come from the massive chasm between demand and supply in healthcare services in tier II and III towns that have lately seen a spurt in economic growth.
Given the government’s limitations, most of this growth will be financed by investments coming directly from strategic or institutional investors or private equity and venture capital. According to DIPP data, between April 2000 and September 2016 FDI over $5billion found its way into hospitals, diagnostics and medical and surgical appliances segments while more than 14 billion went into pharmaceuticals and drug segment. A lot of this investment came in the form of private equity and venture capital from leading global investors such as International Finance Corporation, Abraaj Group, TPG Growth, InvAscent, Chryscapital, and Quadria Capital among others.
Relatively mature, pharma segment has been leading the wave of consolidation in the industry while hospitals and diagnostics have been hitting the public markets to raise funds for growth. Meanwhile, private equity and venture capital continues to pour into smaller operations such as regional diagnostic services, medical appliances, healthcare services as well as digital services. The size of PE/VC investments into healthcare businesses has gone up from $5-20 million around three years ago to $20-40 million in 2016-17.
In the midst of this, debt financing is being explored by a new breed of doctors-cum-entrepreneurs and a lot of NBFCs and venture debt funds are coming forward to lend them a hand. Insurance and health-tech, two critical blocks with immense potential to boost healthcare growth, surprisingly, aren’t seeing as much action. To be sure, a lot of experiments are being made in tele-medicine & mobile health space as well as digitizing doctor-patient data but no defining moves have come to the fore yet. Does the latter require a conscious attention from global big players such as GE, Siemens and Philips while the former needs more serious policy interventions from the government?
The ninth edition of News Corp VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit, to be organized in Mumbai shortly, will examine these emerging trends as well discuss challenges faced by India’s healthcare industry and opportunities pursued by an exciting bunch of entrepreneurs, medical practitioners and investors.

Panel Discussion 1: Is India's healthcare challenge an opportunity for investors?
India is a country with limited reach and access to quality healthcare, and as such poses a big challenge on how to take untapped population under the umbrella and deliver services. Understandably, the challenge is also viewed as business opportunity and multiple start-ups, entrepreneurs and investors find this sector extremely attractive. As a result, last 5 years saw investment firms taking an increasing amount of interest in full range of healthcare companies such as insurance, hospitals, pharmaceutical and medical tech companies. In a VCCircle analysis we learnt that healthcare was among the top five sectors where dry powder found its way amounting to $731 million. Few questions to ask investors therefore include – what are some trends in healthcare which are investment heavy, how is this change going to affect country at large, what are some risks they undertake and what are some hurdles that would not let you move forward?

Recently there have been price regulation announcements on coronary stents, ortho implants, 46 scheduled formulations of Schedule-I drugs.

Panel Discussion 4: Role of global leaders in developing Indian healthcare market?
The Indian healthcare market is considered very attractive by international businesses, given the large population with limited medical reach, increased spending capacity, changing lifestyles, enhanced information making population moving towards health centric approaches and much more. As a result, past few years witnessed multiple global players investing and entering the Indian healthcare space especially in pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and hospital care. However, there are multiple challenges that hinder the optimum growth of these businesses or inhibit others to enter the space. These hurdles include regulatory frameworks, promoter-driven management styles, obsolete infrastructure & technology, limited funding options etc. Considering both the pros and cons of the industry, how are the global players sustaining and growing their business?

Panel Discussion 1: Healthcare Services: Will multi-specialty hospitals follow the consolidation route?
Expensive real-estate, large set-up costs and continuous funding requirements are some of the features of a multi-specialty hospital deal. Considering that consolidation helps both – acquiring market cap as well as increase margins, are consolidation here to stay? Can businesses leverage larger networks to create synergies?

Special Address: Online Pharmacy: The Uber moment for an age old sector, would it succeed?
We live in an age where we buy everything from groceries to cars with the tap of a button; it is time for medical and pharmaceutical market to catch up to this trend. Out of the 3000 online pharmacies that operate around the world, 19% of them came from India. But in this widely fragmented industry which consists of the traditional mom-and-pop stores and several small internet pharmacies, we are yet to declare the winner due to the abundance of regulatory challenges they are facing. The growth of online pharmacy business depends on how much they will be able to fit themselves within the legal framework.

Panel discussion 2: Single Specialty: Who cuts the chase?
We see single-specialty mushrooming because of its lower risk, lower capital expenditure and better asset turns. This asset light model allows the investment to be spread over a larger network and a larger geographical area and hence creating more value. What are the different single specialty segments that have scaled up? What’s instore for future especially in regards with investor sentiment?

Special Address: Ethics and governance in healthcare delivery
Health care institutions globally are facing challenges in balancing issues around ethics, economic efﬁciency, and access while organizing for and delivering services. In the Indian context, where health indicators are poor, the issue of ethics becomes more complex. With involvement of multiple stakeholders such as physician, the bio-pharmaceutical industry, diagnostics and the pharmacists, what can healthcare businesses do to improve ethics and governance?

Panel Discussion 3: A peek into “Healthcare of Future”: how would robotics, AI, automation change the way they look (functions)?
Robotics surgeries may well be a more expensive proposition for hospitals, but robots and AI are certainly going to play a major part of the Indian healthcare system. There are several startups such as DiFacto Robotics and Automation, Sigtuple and Aindra which are going to lead the way to bring this to reality in India.

Home healthcare services poses as the most promising field in the Healthcare-tech sector growing at a CAGR of 9% per annum. The need for this service is driven by double income households, chronic disease burden, social structure changes and an increased need for geriatric care. Some of the prominent players in this sector who have attracted investments are Health Care at Home, Portea, Zoctr, Vatsalya, Nightingales among others. 2016 saw a rise in the number of VC deals in the HCIT sector, but the amount raised fell from $ 162 million to $ 71 million.
