How has been your response to the challenges posted by the covid affected market and the need for new operational strategies?
COVID-19 has shaken the foundations of India’s healthcare system. Despite the initial hiccups, the healthcare system in India has managed to withstand the pandemic. The various efforts of manufacturing medical equipment, disposables, drugs and vaccination has helped India to shine in the global platform. India has not only fulfilled the domestic requirements, but also supported other countries. Digital adoption has taken a quantum leap at both the organizational and industry levels. During the pandemic, consumers have moved dramatically toward online channel which has resulted in bringing big success.

We also ensure that our actions match the words we speak and keep our thoughts balanced and truthful. We have less focus on the stress or and more on solving the problem.

Going forward, what are the changes in healthcare market that you anticipate and what are the opportunities that you foresee?
Covid-19 has transformed the way the government and private players are planning to bring change in the healthcare system. The biggest health emergencies of this times are not only the countless challenges and gaps in our healthcare sector but also the importance of investing in ‘well-being’ at both personal and system level. In this digitally and technically advanced era it is expected to help communities fulfil those requirements at a faster pace. Therefore, an increased focus on telemedicine services is noticed and the government has issued new guidelines to make telemedicine a legal practice in India. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoH&FW), along with NITI Aayog has rolled out the new guidelines that will allow registered medical practitioners (RMPs) to provide healthcare services using telemedicine.

Furthermore, the government has also launched the NDHM (National Digital health Mission) to address the country’s health crisis. The major components of this mission encompass telemedicine, health IDs, health records, along with e-pharmacy and Digi doctor services. India’s healthcare market is expected to reach $372 billion by 2022. The Indian government aims at increasing the healthcare spending to 2.5 percent of the GDP(gross domestic product) by 2025.

What advice would you give to the budding industry leaders of diagnostics healthcare domain?
I would tell them to be realistic by taking small steps towards improvement. They should keep working on difficult topics and remain positive by trying not to generalize criticisms.
