Sees congregation of healthcare leaders and game changers; event to be held till September 24, 2016
Express Healthcare, a leading publication from The Indian Express Group, inaugurated the first edition of Healthcare Senate – The National Private Healthcare Business Summit, in Hyderabad. Private healthcare leaders and game changers congregated on the inaugural day of the event.
The event began on an auspicious note with a lamp lighting ceremony by senior dignitaries such as NC Borah, Founder, GNRC Group of Hospitals; Dr A Velumani, Founder, CEO and Managing Director, Thyrocare; and Dr Sabahat Azim, CEO, Glocal Healthcare. They were joined by Viveka Roychowdhury, Editor, Express Healthcare.
Roychowdhury welcomed the august audience and thanked them for their support in ushering a healthcare revolution in India.
It was followed by a very rousing key note address by Dr Velumani. His entrepreneurial journey from a small village with low resources to one of the most renowned players in the diagnostics sector, inspired and enthralled the entire audience.
“Experience is gained through problems and the learnings they offer as we overcome them. Lucky are those who are born poor. Life offers them more opportunities to learn,” said Dr Velumani.
“Move out of your comfort zones to succeed. In life there is security or prosperity. There is nothing called secured prosperity. Disruption brings about growth. Be a disrupter or get ready to be disrupted,” he advised. The audience gave him a standing ovation for his valuable insights.
The next session focused on the potential of technology to disrupt the healthcare sector. Aakash Shah, Director Sales, National and International Market, eClinicalWorks, gave a session on how hospitals can leverage cloud computing to better their service offerings. He ended his presentation with the message that cutting the cost of care without cutting down on the quality of care is the need of the hour.
BV Ramana, Head Marketing, Aurobindo Pharma, gave a presentation on the initiatives of his company to improve the healthcare scenario in the country.
Thus, Healthcare Senate has begun on a very positive note and has set the tone for more fruitful and informative sessions in the next two days. Watch this space for more updates on the event and don’t forget to follow us at www.twitter.com/exphealthcare for real time information.
