"Empowering India's Developing Healthcare System"
Investing the Healthcare Solutions of Tomorrow in difficult Times

The year 2014 will be remembered in Indian history not just an election but as a watershed elections of hope & prosperity, the formation of the new BJP ruled Government under Prime Minister Modi's Prime Ministership is expected to bring far reaching healthcare reforms, to dispel the foreign investors from investing in Indian soil & create a favourable conditions of an ideal destination & above all bring clarity,hassle free & transparent policy formations in the Indian healthcare industry. Are we any closer to that goal? Looking at the continued fragmentation of health and care services, the lack of significant support to people's self-management, the persistence of reactive and crisis-oriented approaches, and some high profile failures to provide compassionate care, it would be hard to say so.That is because governments typically deliver "reforms" that are structure- and system-dominated, and which carry the assumption that what is said in central policy will happen in frontline practice.
