Indian healthcare is passing through critical phase. There is growing perception that healthcare is unduly expensive. Quality care in lesser costs is expected. The healthcare is also becoming an election agenda. That brings proactive push for reforms by the government. All these factors pose serious challenge to healthcare providers, who will be required to constantly keep innovating and do fine balancing act. The increase in demand on private sector would be coupled with complying with regulatory and patient safety norms.
