How will healthcare delivery drive innovation in pharma? Find out at VCCircle Healthcare Investment Forum 2014; register now

With healthcare delivery taking the centre stage to drive innovations in healthcare products including pharma, medical devices & equipment and consumables, it is interesting to know how innovations in these products are likely to impact healthcare delivery services. With healthcare delivery services drawing significant investors’ interest in the recent past and no promising exits seen, will consolidation drive the delivery services? We will discuss it threadbare at the VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit on September 25 at The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai.

Key discussions will include:

-          With a few big ticket acquisitions hitting the headlines, we explore what’s driving the Indian pharma story amid pricing policy issues and exports-backed demand.

-          ‘Make in India’ being the new slogan, what opportunities are entrepreneurs pursuing in manufacturing indigenous low-cost & high-quality medical devices as well as in the low-value consumables?

-          After strengthening the backbone of diagnostic services in metro cities, how are the organised chains scaling up and increasing penetration in the sub metros & remote areas? The discussion will take a quick look at technological advancements and governance measures taken while scaling in the largely fragmented diagnostic space.

-          Revolutionising imperative primary healthcare delivery—how lucrative is the business opportunity in instituting not so capital-intensive primary healthcare delivery model? What are the challenges faced while scaling up?

-          Integration of technology, data and analytics in improving efficiency, patient care & transparency—can real time information be a game changer? What are the emerging opportunities in patient education around procedures, costs and quality?
