Which healthcare segment is investors’ favourite? Find out @ News Corp VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit 2016; register now

The Indian healthcare sector is seeing a rise in single-speciality and tertiary-care ventures. While both segments have attracted investors in recent times, it is yet to be deciphered which of the two is going to emerge as the true game-changer in India’s healthcare ecosystem.

With experts arguing in favour of single-speciality units’ potential to transform the healthcare landscape, one cannot discount the success and value brought forth by tertiary care units. Multispecialty tertiary-care units have an important gap to bridge, especially to ensure an accessible and comprehensive healthcare system.

There is no denying the fact that single-speciality hospitals have scripted their success story in the largely scattered Indian healthcare market. This impact has made prominent multispecialty and tertiary-care units explore options to enter single-speciality space by setting up units catering to exclusive categories.

It would be interesting to see how the concept of single speciality evolves further in the years to come, and if it would eventually hold a lion’s share of the healthcare business in India. Further, its impact on tertiary care and if they can bring any additional value to their services, over and above the ones being offered by the specialised care units, is yet to be seen.

Hear industry stalwarts share their views on the subject and contemplate the future of healthcare in India at News Corp VCCircle’s Healthcare Investment Summit. The summit will host exclusive panel discussions on single-speciality and tertiary-care facilities. The panel will host leading personalities of India’s healthcare industry.
