Indian Healthcare Sector is witnessing a huge transformation

Indian Healthcare Sector is witnessing a huge transformation | Healthcare in India | Scoop.it

India is one of the world’s largest democracies and the way it makes a mark on the global map being a powerful and emerging economy, it gives positive insight about the future prospect of the country.

 

Healthcare, being India’s one of the largest sectors both in terms of revenue and employment, has witnessed a huge transformation in the last decade.

 

The latest technology and innovative digital tools have led the Indian healthcare delivery system to get evolved in terms of providing enriched healthcare experience to masses especially in the front of clinical outcomes.

 

With the Government undertaking many measures to bolster patient care and private players playing equally pivotal roles, the sector is making giant leaps to enable people at large to avail accessible and affordable healthcare.

 

The healthcare sector is projected to become 8.6 trillion by 2022. The unprecedented growth of the healthcare sector is due to a range of factors including spike in non- communicable diseases, a considerable increase in income of the middle class, more awareness, quest for quality care, and easy access to service providers.

 

The government also seems to be determined to provide quality health for all. With this objective, the spending is set to be increased to 2.5% of the gross domestic product by 2025.

 

Even though the healthcare sector is growing, there is low accessibility and affordability for most of the population as the insurance coverage is less plus the costs of healthcare are also rising.

 

Some of the biggest factors for limiting healthcare accessibility include:- 

 

1. We have 7 beds for 10,000 population whereas globally it is 26 beds.

 

2. There are more medical professionals in the urban area than in the rural areas/villages where a large strata of our population lives with low accessibility to healthcare.

 

3. The insurance coverage is also very low as compared to other countries leading to an increase in out-of-pocket expenditure taking a toll on the patients.

 

4. There is a shift in disease patterns from communicable to non- communicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. The cardiovascular diseases are the highest known cause of death especially in the younger age group in India.

 

The way technology is making an impact, the time has come when just doctor-patient engagement is not enough. With continuous technological growth, the healthcare industry is going to be more based on “Value-based care “ outcomes in the coming days.

 

New trends as per Vision2024 would be–

 

1. Healthcare will go mobile.
2. New strategies to deliver low-cost healthcare will be on the rise.
3. New drug pricing models will be unveiled.
4. Behavioral healthcare will see more acceptance.
