Amar Bhat's curator insight, June 30, 2014 2:49 PM

Everytime I discuss health care with Indians, I have taken pains to avoid comparisons with the U.S. style of health delivery since that always evokes a knee-jerk reaction of how the U.S. spends too much and gets too little, despite my explanations and caveats. Thus, to see this sort of headline is really head-spinning!

 

It is my contention that the system of health delivery is already very much like the American system, with the main difference being the extreme nature of privatization of healthcare in India-- in other words, "more American than America"!  If anything, there needs to be more regulation by government over those who would deliver healthcare and more government intervention to ensure people of modest means the ability to access health care. These are things that the market is unable to provide without more guidance.

 

All in all, I guess we should applaud Modi's interest in healthcare, particularly health financing/insurance.  More interest is definitely better than the benign neglect of the past decade.

Mobile Adoption Rampant Across Indian Healthcare

Mobile Adoption Rampant Across Indian Healthcare | Healthcare_India | Scoop.it

Mobile technology is finally being deployed at an accelerated pace across India today.

 

The healthcare ecosystem in India, IDC Health Insights finds, is witnessing a “sea change” in terms of government focus, growth of corporate healthcare provider brands, and strategic public-private partnerships with the key aim to increase geographic and demographic reach.

 

“While healthcare IT is at a relatively nascent stage of adoption in India, especially compared to the potential, there have been several instances of innovative implementations and best practices in India. The growth of the private corporate entities in healthcare has fared well for IT implementation in the industry,” says Sash Mukherjee, Research Manager for IDC Health Insights in the Asia/Pacific region.
