32 students from Healthcare Administration - PGD Jan' 13, MBA (L) Apr '13 (Q2) & MBA (L) Jul '13 (Q1) & MBA (1) July '13 (Q1) attended the conference - Health Enterprise and Learning (HEAL) 2013 on September 2 – 3, 2013 at Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), Federation House, New Delhi.
India's healthcare sector has become one of the country's largest sectors, both in terms of revenue and employment. Some private hospitals provide world class facilities, so much so that people from third countries come here for treatment giving impetus to medical tourism. On the other hand, is the lack of access to even basic medical care for many people particularly the poor and disadvantaged. Our medical healthcare system has to be developed to cater to medical requirements of all sections of society, both in rural and urban areas.” Keeping this agenda in mind Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) organized a two day conference Health Enterprise and Learning (HEAL) 2013 on September 2 – 3, 2013.
The conference threw light on the prevailing quality of Healthcare Industry as a whole highlighting the affordability, accessibility and assurance of health services in and around the nation. Issues of Hospital Planning that should be kept in mind for establishing a hospital were also discussed. Day 2 mainly stressed on Patient Safety standards and Claims Fraud Management which highlighted some 10 major common claims on documentation, billing and the emergency department. One of the sessions highlighted the importance of paying attention to maintenance of quality standards and their application. The day ended on a note talking about Telemedicine and the transformation that we can bring in by application of Information Technology in Healthcare with another presentation on innovating low cost methods in Medical Technology with solutions that Industry is capable to provide.
According to Ms Ginny Kaushal, Faculty (Healthcare Administration) - INLEAD: “It was certainly a great exposure and a great platform where in our questionings were handled with all the attention”.
