It will offer a unique platform conducive to meaningful dialogue that will pave the way for collaborations, deliberations, discussions, building ideas, sharing best practices, networking, showcasing technological innovations, providing sectoral insights, and much more. It will open engagement gateways amongst academia, start-up incubators and accelerators, private industry and investors.

Who will attend?
Thought leaders from the industry, think tanks, decision makers from the Government, domain experts, academicians, innovators, enterprises and start-ups are expected to participate.
India is grappling with the twin issues of accessibility and affordability. In this scenario, digital solutions can play a key role in transforming our industry, while also placing us higher on the global map
Digital is the future. In an industry like healthcare, where technological advances can make a huge difference in saving lives and moving in the right direction, how do we explore and find ways to transform us as an industry?
Our industry needs a heavy boost right now to scale further heights. Investments are a vital card for this growth. And creating an ecosystem to attract favourable investments will give it the right nudge
Greater engagement and institutional linkages with the right stakeholders is the need of the hour. It is important to get the right investors, gauge expected returns, deliberate on stable pricing policy and make a supportive regulatory environment, to sustain this effort
The scarcity of skilled manpower has been a huge concern of Indian healthcare. An apt way to address this is not only finding out the right skills to impart, but also identify the gaps to be filled in
The Government and the private sector can play ideal roles of catalysts in improving quality in our country. Let us look at how we can increase the number of doctors and skilled staff. At the same time, explore the delivery of healthcare services that are quality and safe for everyone.
India is evolving. There is a recent surge in entreprenuer entrants that are driving a wave of innovation across Indian healthcare. However, a push is needed further. How can we enable these set-ups to achieve more and also extract learnings from various global innovations and their impact?
Innovations are the take off grounds of any industry. How can Indian healthcare too use this tool to integrate innovations with Ayushman Bharat and thus raise the industry's bar higher
There is a growing need for bringing in accelerators, providing support to existing ecosystems, enable greater engagement with the academia, and more such initiatives to give a push to research and development in healthcare
Assessing the potential of data driven analytics to reshape health outcomes, streamline health records, telemedicine, and various e-Health platforms
What are the learnings that we can take from the global healthcare industry? The latest and most advanced surgical interventions, exploring research/critical cases, finding out what makes or breaks a medical tourism market, and more
