Introductory Note

9:50am - 10:40am
Panel I: Experiences of Catalysing growth through investor capital - myth vs reality
Riding on the back of growing demand for quality healthcare, rising disposable income chasing quality of life & health conscious users, healthcare sector in India has seen a lot of changes in the past five years. Most of the innovations & growth achieved in the sector has been fuelled by private investors banking on traditional as well as emerging healthcare business models. While the sector is opening doors for numerous opportunities and is now poised to show some exits with a chain of IPOs lined up showing some ray of hope to the private investors, we understand what has been the experience for private investors in real terms. Has the sector been able to deliver the promised returns or there is still time before they start expecting returns? Talking about future investments, which categories are set to draw significant amount of fund infusion? Which sub-segments within healthcare spectrum are experiencing notable activities?

Panel II: Will Consolidation drive the asset heavy healthcare models?
In quest of gaining market shares and capturing regional opportunities, many healthcare service providers are pursing consolidation strategies either to strengthen their position as market leaders or to reduce pressures on depleting balance sheets. With emergence on asset light models, there is an inherent pressure of asset heavy models and hence some movement is seen there. Will consolidation be seen in the asset heavy healthcare models? Is it the growth potential for premium quality healthcare services, demand -supply mismatch or under-penetrated healthcare services in the Tier II & III cities? Are private investors still banking on asset heavy models and coming in such acquisition transactions?

Panel III: Pharma opportunities in India - OTC, Drug Discovery & more
Pharma opportunity in India has been interesting in the recent past, ranging from large strategic M&A deals to emerging small cap pharma companies, focus on alternate medicine such as ayurveda, contract manufacturing of API besides others. Emergence of organized healthcare chains has opened up new avenues for pharma companies to serve the organized demand. Going with the recent changes in the pharma industry dynamics and inherent deep involvement of the government, what are the painful experiences faced by Indian pharma companies? How are the companies tacking with the growing issues of price controls, patent protection, structural, logistics & governance? What are the opportunities & challenges for MNC's stationed in India vis-a-vis domestic companies in terms of drug discovery models, patent rights, IPR, research cost, price barriers and regulatory approvals? Can India emerge as a market of "product differentiation" vis -a vis other emerging markets like China, Brazil etc? When it comes to innovations, data Integrity, technology advancement, where is Indian pharma sector standing? How are young pharma companies growing despite myriad challenges? Which category looks attractive to investors? What are the recent interesting trends and under-leveraged categories that is worth betting on? Is consolidation the way forward?

Panel IV: Evolution of the tertiary care business models - Impact of strong regional plays
Besides a few large tertiary care chains of hospitals, a larger play in tertiary care is seen from strong regional players dominating sizable market shares in their own regions. With a strong know how of key market drivers, demand-supply analysis and customer demographics, these regional players have been able to get the model right for tertiary care and have been successful in providing affordable & quality healthcare services. Emergence of regional brands in tertiary care has been welcomed well by the investors as we’ve seen significant investments supporting their businesses. What’s the key behind evolution of regional tertiary healthcare service providers? Is the trend drifting from national to regional plays? How is the regional tertiary care opportunity evolving and which all specialties’/specialized healthcare services are most promising?

Panel V: Understanding the context of “Make in India” for Med-tech: Indigenous medical devices, medical consumables & equipment
Medical Technology in India has seen signification traction with Indian medical devices, consumables and equipment finding market in the international borders besides the home ground. Adding to this, the “Make in India” campaign will further strengthen India’s position in medical technology as it brings newer players to make in India besides strengthening the current players. Backed by demand and larger pool of talent available, we understand what are the key trends driving med -tech developments? To address the growing needs of growing Indian consumers, what kind of innovations and customization are entrepreneurs bringing to the table? Is the med tech opportunity yet to grab larger interest from investors? Considering the price sensitivity, how are Indian entrepreneurs tackling pricing & quality issues? Are there any lucrative policy incentives to “Make in India” for med tech? What steps can be taken to make the sector less import driven? Will setting up of med-tech industrial parks have a significant impact on local device manufacturing industry?

Overview of day I & welcome note

9:30am - 10:30am
Panel I: Emerging Healthcare Delivery Models: Spotlight on Home Healthcare & Birthing Centres
Home healthcare is a vibrant multi-billion dollar business in the developed countries and India has just started to witness its potential as we see few emerging businesses aiming to deliver quality healthcare through newer emerging models such as home healthcare.  The segment has started getting traction and has now drawn interest of entrepreneurs, investors & even large hospital chains. Similarly, specialized birthing centres are getting increasingly hotter with affluent middle class bypassing traditional nursing homes to avail ideal combination of top clinical facilities and memorable hospitality experience. While these two models are under spotlight, we understand what are the emerging healthcare delivery models gaining traction and now becoming mainstream?

10:30am - 11:30am
Panel II: Leveraging Information Technology in healthcare: Hospital Management software, Patient & disease data analysis and more
Use of Information Technology is Indian healthcare industry is way below as compared to some of the other developing nations. There are very less or no information management systems which can help capture critical information on illness, diseases, treatments & patients residing with fragmented healthcare service providers across the country. Very few providers have now taken information management on priority however that is also limited to capturing patient registration data. Be it hospitals, diagnostic services, pharma companies to medical technology players, there is no intersection of information technology when it comes to clinical data. While this poses a great challenge to the industry, entrepreneurs have latched on to this as a huge opportunity and are creating systems which can help large healthcare players deliver services more efficiently. What are the opportunities in creating new-age disruptive hospital management systems, clinical information systems & other emerging segments? How do investors see this as an opportunity? Relevance of Information management systems capturing clinical and patient information etc in diagnostics and research? How does this information availability impact the overall healthcare innovation scenario in the country?

To enable healthcare services reach the audience in most appropriate manner, digital health services are playing a key role.
