4th Annual Healthscape Summit India – North Edition
With an event related to healthcare happening almost every day in some city or the other, the 4th edition of the Healthscape Summit, which recently concluded on August 28, was a truly stand-out initiative.
Despite torrential rainfall on the day of the event, there was an impressive turnout in the Leela Ambience Hotel. Healthcare professionals were keen to listen to some of the most renowned leaders in the Indian healthcare fraternity. The morning conference session was a procession of high-quality and engaging presentations, including:
- Dr Jitendar Sharma – Advisor (Health), Government of Andhra Pradesh Managing Director & CEO, Andhra Pradesh Medtech Zone Executive Director, KIHT
- Dr Shubnum Singh – Director-Medical Education, Medical Research Advisor – Healthcare Framework, Max Healthcare Institute
- Dr Naveen Nishchal – Founder Director, Cygnus Hospitals Co – Founder, Meddo Network Of Clinics
- Dr Pankaj Gupta – Partner, Taurus Glocal Consulting
- Dr Sandeep Chatrath – Senior Healthcare Advisor & Hospital Management Consultant
- Dr Saarthak Bakshi – CEO & Founder, International Fertility Centre
- Mr Rajiv Nath – Forum Coordinator, AIMED | Jt. Managing Director, Hindustan Syringes & Medical Devices
Among several others.
The speakers highlighted the huge impact that the Ayushman Bharat scheme will have once it is implemented and in effect throughout the country. There were also key discussions of the implementation of technology that enable hospitals to run more efficiently.
Post the lunch session, the hospital owners, developers, architects and procurement managers engaged in pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings with the suppliers. Every meeting between the buyer and supplier was pre-scheduled based on their choice which they expressed about a week prior to the event.
It is the face-to-face meeting schedule that is the highlight of an IDE initiative. About 10 days prior to the initiative, all the buyers receive the complete list of the attending suppliers. The list includes information about the supplier’s product line, track record and innovative launches (if any).
Simultaneously, the suppliers receive the complete list of all the attending hospital owners, developers, architects and purchase managers. This list includes vital information about the precise requirements of the hospital projects, including the product requirements, procurement timeframes and budgets to procure the goods / services.
Both the buyers and suppliers choose whom they want to meet based on their specific requirements. Once the organizers (IDE), receives this information, the meetings are set-up on the day of the event.
“Events such as the Healthscape Summit bring together the key decision makers, as well as the movers and shakers of the healthcare fraternity under one roof. Not only is everyone on the same page, they also have advance information of who they are meeting and what exactly their requirements are. They are then able to immediately talk about business that will drive the industry forward.” Said Ganesh Babu, Director of IDE Consulting Services.
The focus now shifts to the upcoming 5th Edition Healthscape Summit India – South Edition, taking place in Bengaluru on October-5-2018. This will be the 4th successive year the event is taking place in Bengaluru, which is a testament to how effective the event has been in the recent past.
