The Indian economy is witnessing phenomenal growth, currently above 10% of Gross Domestic Product, economic growth is bringing with it an expected “health transition”, in terms of shifting demographics, socioeconomic transformations and changes in disease patterns - with increasing
degenerative and lifestyle diseases and altered healthcare behavior. Healthcare providers have been struggling to cope with this exciting scenario where change is the only constant.

Healthcare, which is a US$ 35 billion dollar industry in India, is expected to reach over US$ 75 billion in the next five years. The private sector today accounts for over 80% of this spending. With 1.5 beds per thousand population (both private and public combined), India is at par with some of the less developed countries like Mexico, Costa Rica & Philippines. An addition of even a single bed per thousand population (1.1 million beds in the case of India) will require an investment of around US$ 80 billion. We envisage that most of these will be created in the secondary care format in Tier II cities where the bed ratio is most adverse.

It is estimated that over 90% of the private healthcare is being serviced by the unorganized sector. This preponderance of the unorganized sector in healthcare is not because of a preferred choice for such health practitioners, but by more functional imperatives, namely the absence of affordable, convenient and quality healthcare delivery systems. This is expected to undergo a sea change in the coming years... The great opportunities afforded at this juncture are attracting a large number of established players as well as new entrants.

Technopak’s1st India Health Summit will for the first time bring together global and Indian healthcare leaders together on a common platform. They would deliberate on the best practices, their learning and insights in the complex arena of healthcare delivery. It would be an excellent opportunity to network within the industry Thought Leaders, Business Conglomerates, CEOs and Private Equity Firms.

The 1st India Health Summit 2007 has exceptional agenda with the strong emphasis on knowledge dissemination. A series of workshop sessions have been planned to provide first hand insights from global healthcare experts, these include Lean thinking in Healthcare, Financing healthcare, Healthcare retail, Evidence Based Architecture, The Healthcare Consumers, Merger and Acquisition in healthcare.
