India’s healthcare story is not just about large corporate and super specialty hospitals. It is a deep and multi-layered story with enormous potential at the sub-plot level be it in the areas of devices, products, diagnostics, pharma retail, affordable healthcare, insurance and alternative therapy.

Apart from game-changing and emerging models in mainstream plays, VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit 2010 will precisely focus on these opportunities in India’s most compelling domestic market theme.

In fact, the summit has two panel discussions, featuring leaders in that space, dedicated to unravel the various aspects of the sub-themes. In the first part, we present the opportunities and trends in the diagnostics, devices and products space. This panel will answer questions like: With just a handful of large chains, diagnostics is still a much fragmented play. What is holding this sector back? What is the opportunity set in the medical devices play? Is there scope for genericisation in this space? What is the investor interest? What does the game look like for enterprises in the surgical products, implantables, blood products and stem cell product space?

Presenting answers and their experiences would be seasoned entrepreneurs and investors: Dr Ajay Aggarwal, Director, Diwan Chand Medical Services Pvt. Ltd; G S K Velu, MD, Metropolis Health Services Ltd; Mayur Abhaya Srisrimal, President, LifeCell International; B N Manohar, CEO, Stempeutics Research Pvt Ltd; Avnish Bajaj, MD, Matrix Partners India and Shiraz Bugwadia, Director, o3 Capital.

The other panel titled ‘Healthcare Enablers’ will touch upon themes such as insurance penetration and its impact on healthcare, affordable healthcare, alternative medicine, pharma retail, outsourcing and cost arbitrage plays.

Leading this wide canvass panel discussion would be Ratan Jalan, CEO, Medium Healthcare (Moderator) with other members Prashanth Prakash, Partner, Accel India; Sanjay Singh, Founder, Swas Healthcare Pvt. Ltd, DA Prasanna, CMD, Ecron Acunova; Amit Varma, President, Healthcare, Religare Enterprises Ltd; Sanjay Arte, Partner, India Value Funds Advisor; and Vikram Gupta, COO, India Venture Advisors.
