I. 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM : Inaugural Plenary

Government of India released National Health Policy (NHP 2017) in early part of 2017. Last health policy was released in 2002 and in this gap of 15 years much as changed — Health priorities are changing from with successes achieved in MMR and IMR to increasing burden of non-communicable diseases, health care industry has seen a robust double digit growth dominated by fast growth of organized private healthcare sector, growing incidences of catastrophic expenditure due to healthcare costs, and enhanced fiscal capacity due to rising economic growth.

The NHP 2017 aims to inform, clarify, strengthen and prioritize the role of the Government in shaping health systems in all its dimensions- investments in health, organization of healthcare services, prevention of diseases and promotion of good health through cross sectoral actions, access to technologies, developing human resources, encouraging medical pluralism, building knowledge base, developing better financial protection strategies, strengthening regulation and health assurance.

This inaugural session aims to decode the NHP 2017 presenting key features of the policy and highlight emerging imperatives for different stakeholders in the times to come.

Moderated by
Mr. Parijat Ghosh

This session shall focus on exploring:
Lot has been and said but much still needs to be done as far as PPP in healthcare is concerned. PPP in healthcare has not been as successful as it had been in other sectors such as infrastructure. However, it is still believed that PPP can play a major role in bringing in the enterprise and efficiencies of private sector in meeting the agenda and health imperatives set out by the national health policy.

1. Why PPP in healthcare have been few and failed to ramp up to the scale they are needed.

2. Focus areas of PPP under the NHP 2017.

3. What concrete actions are required to conceptualize, curate and made operational meaningful and scalable PPP projects to create the impact as envisaged under NHP 2017, e.g. in primary care, skill up-gradation, provision of high value services.

III. 12:30 PM – 01:30 PM : Panel Discussion on “Digital Healthcare”

Moderated by
Charu Sehgal
Partner – Leader-Strategy & Operations Consulting
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Private Limited

Digital offers possibilities to deliver healthcare in the way it could never be done in the past. What digital can potentially offer is full of exciting possibilities but business cases, especially in Indian context, are yet to be fully established. Most healthcare players follow a “me too” strategy for digital and they forget digital is not IT. Most players are yet to comprehensively define their digital strategy which aligns with their strategic goals, they are yet to deploy a digital team capable of executing the complex digital strategy. Moreover, lack of readily available products and solutions make digital a challenging exercise to undertake. This session shall deliberate on the following a) identify areas where digital can play a defining role for healthcare system, hospitals and diagnostic chains, b) for long many initiatives like telemedicine, tele-consult have been long discussed, but they have not been very successful in ramping up into commercially successful models – the session shall discuss the challenges related to it and come up action points for different stakeholders.

IV. 02:15 PM – 03:15 PM : Panel Discussion on “Insurance – Last Mile”

Moderated by
Rana Mehta

Health insurance industry has witnessed a 15-20% growth over last one decade. Percentage of people covered through some form of health insurance has crossed 35% in 2015, primarily driven by government sponsored health insurance schemes such as RSBY, ESIC but implementation of Universal health coverage is yet to be seen. On the other hand, coverage of private insurance stays relatively small at ~6%. Adoption is hampered by multiple “last mile” challenges which include limitations of coverage offered, distribution reach, procedural issues related to insurance payments and reimbursements, trust issues and fraud risks. The session brings in different stakeholders, viz. insurance companies, and healthcare providers, consumer representatives to deliberate what can be done to improve adoption and address the last mile issues.

Moderated by

Accessible quality primary healthcare for long has been the neglected area in the growth story of healthcare sector over last two decades. While interesting innovations have been seen in last 5 years in terms of organized play and increased customer orientation, more and more use of technology, but such examples are few. Primary care services are still not covered by insurance. Government in NHP-2017 has placed a major emphasis on primary health care going from selective care to assured comprehensive care which includes geriatric health care, palliative care and rehabilitative care services. This session shall discuss about

a) the need for change the primary care is delivered today.
b) Identify opportunity for primary care in context of goals of NHP 2017.

Globally three trends are defining the way healthcare is delivered today – need to be more affordable, rising consumerism and technology which is enabling care in ways which was not possible earlier. We are witnessing similar trends in India – pricing regulations, focus on value – outcomes at affordable cost, emphasis on higher transparency, consumers getting power to make themselves heard through social media, consumers seeking experience and not just care, and technology making possible aspects which were not considered possible till some time back.
