ABOUT THE EVENT
Successful Universal Health Coverage (UHC) has so far eluded India, however, with the path-breaking arrival of the Ayushman Bharat Program, the country’s healthcare landscape & ecosystem is about to undergo tremendous change.
Medical Technology Association of India (MTaI) represents a wide spectrum of medical device companies in India, having a strong manufacturing, healthcare worker training footprint and stands for greater patient access and quality care. In the pursuit of its mission, MTaI organized its annual MedTech conference, The MTaI MedTekon 2018: ‘MedTech-Vitalizing Ayushman Bharat’ on September 20, 2018, at Shangri La’s Eros Hotel, Ashoka Road, New Delhi.
The healthcare sector drives on four wheels – the providers (hospitals), the pharmaceutical industry, the medical technology (MedTech) industry and the Health Insurance industry. Among these, the MedTech industry is the smallest, but in some ways the most vital wheel. Medical technology has undoubtedly had the incredible impact on patients’ lives and is vital to Ayushman Bharat’s success.
The theme of the conference was ‘Contribution of MedTech industry in the successful implementation of Ayushman Bharat program’ with an objective to carve out a roadmap, in consultation with the government and other stakeholders.
The MTaI MedTekon 2018: ‘MedTech-Vitalizing Ayushman Bharat’ brought patients, industry, doctors & policymakers together, all on the same platform to discuss and deliberate upon the opportunities and challenges in the implementation of Ayushman Bharat Program and how to support it to enable last mile coverage. We thank you for participating in the MTaI MedTekon 2018 and making it a grand success.
