NITI Aayog Member Dr. VK Paul to Inaugurate MTaI MedTekon 2018

Officials from Govt., Hospitals, Insurers, Patients, MedTech Industry to be present

NITI Aayog Member Dr. Vinod K. Paul will inaugurate MTaI MedTekon 2018 in New Delhi on 20th September as industry leaders come together to envision the role of MedTech industry in the implementation of Ayushman Bharat, formally known as Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY).

Dr. Paul is Head of Department of Pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, since 1985. Prof Paul has been closely associated with India’s reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health programs in various roles for over three decades. He is member of NITI Aayog since August 2017.

The seminar will also have the presence of Mr. Indu Bhushan, Chief Executive Officer of Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Mission and National Health Agency (NHA), along with representatives of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Indian Alliance of Patients’ Group, Insurance companies, PE Funds, private hospitals and diagnostic industry.

Foreign delegates will share the global experience of implementing similar healthcare programmes in their countries. The former undersecretary, Department of Health, Govt. of Philippines, Dr Teodoro J Herbosa, who played a key role in rolling out Philippines Public Healthcare Programme has also confirmed his presence to share his country’s experience with the policymakers of India.

This is the first seminar where representatives spanning the entire medical technology sector will be present to talk about Ayushman Bharat, which indicates the importance the MedTech industry attaches to this pathbreaking programme. Industry Captains from different MedTech associations will huddle together to plan how they can unitedly contribute to the successful implementation of Ayushman Bharat.

The government is launching Ayushman Bharat on 25th September to finance secondary and tertiary healthcare in the country. The scheme will provide health insurance worth Rs. 5 lakh per household and will cover 50 crore people or nearly 40% of India’s population.

During MTaI MedTekon 2018, MTaI will unveil a theme paper entitled “MedTech – The Keystone for Ayushman Bharat” that would define the challenges and opportunities in implementing the scheme. “Ayushman Bharat is the largest public healthcare scheme in the world. Given the scale of implementation, it is extremely important that all stakeholders should be in sync with the programme objective and implementation roadmap. At the same time, it is necessary that concerns of all stakeholders are addressed. MTaI MedTekon 2018 will bring together all stakeholders for a day of constructive discussion,” MedTekon Chairman Mr. Badhri Iyengar said.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more
    about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t
    talk about such topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    certainly like your website but you need
    to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find
    it very troublesome to tell the reality however I will surely come back again.
