Telemedicine: An opportunity in Healthcare in India Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Telemedicine: An opportunity in Healthcare
    Amit Bhargava
    Feb 2010
  • 2. Executive Summary
    India with its vast population, of which 70% are poor and often live in difficult to reach and inhospitable terrain, along with inadequate healthcare network faces a daunting challenge of providing quality healthcare to its citizens. Here, the average per capita spend on healthcare is one of the lowest in the world and various healthcare indicators are also lower than the global average.
    In order to provide quality and affordable healthcare to all, Telemedicine – the use of telecommunications to improve patients health status by exchanging medical information from one site to another, has provided an impetus to the government’s vision of quality health for all by helping in delivering quality healthcare and in controlling the spiralling medical costs. With Telemedicine, more than 300,000 people have already benefited.
    Telemedicine in India has a market of more than $500mn and has been implemented in places far and wide under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. As the reach of Telemedicine increases, the market for medical diagnostic, healthcare providers, drug manufactures, telecom equipment manufacturers, software vendors is bound to increase.
    Telemedicine, however is not a panacea for Indian healthcare problems. It is instead a great facilitator in bridging the healthcare divide, representing an early opportunity in the sector which has 5.2% share in the Indian GDP. The future for Telemedicine at the moment looks promising with governmental backing and private initiative. An early move by private enterprise in PPP is highly recommended in the sector.

    Conclusion
  • 4. Indian Healthcare is city centric
    The Indian healthcare services are highly skewed in favour of urban population, which is 28% of Indian population
    Population deprived of primary health care – 700+ million
    Specialist healthcare providers in urban areas – 70%
    Allopathic doctors available per 1000 of population – 0.6
    Doctors available per 1000 of urban population – 2.97
    Doctors available per 1000 of rural population – 0.50
    Relative cost of setting a 100 bed primary care hospital to a tertiary care super-speciality hospital – 1/10
    Spend on healthcare as % of GDP – 5.2
    Governmental spend on healthcare as % of GDP – 0.9
  • 5. Telemedicine in India
    11th Five-Year plan allocates priority for providing accessible health care to rural population using existing fibre optic and satellite infrastructure
    With the help of IT, satellite and fibre optic network, Telemedicine provides specialized healthcare to remote corners of country
    Telemedicine as a practice has been adopted by both – private and public sector healthcare providers
    Public healthcare network using Telemedicine consists of 42 super-specialty hospitals with 8 mobile vans and 200 rural and remote hospitals
    300,000 people have benefitted from the Telemedicine network
    Telemedicine at present is mainly used for non-invasive and non-surgical diagnosis and treatment
    Telemedicine is making healthcare financially viable to non-insured and poor people
  • 6. Key growth drivers of Telemedicine in India
    • Low cost and wide reach over satellite or fibre optic bandwidth
    • 7. Lack of disease management framework
    • 8. Lack of healthcare facilities in far-off regions
    • 9. Reduced technology cost and availability of qualified technical personnel
    • 10. Shortage of qualified medical professionals
    • 11. Increased governmental focus on healthcare for all
    • 12. Urban-Rural divide causing disparity in medical facilities
    • 13. Dedicated satellite for health communications from ISRO

    Current Challenges, Future drivers and Risks
    Conclusion
  • 57. Technology is making tremendous impact on healthcare
    Healthcare in India is in the midst of a major market transition and technology is definitely making a tremendous impact on the way healthcare is delivered. Telemedicine, despite being in practice from a very long time in forms such as health consultation over telephone, has recently seen lot of action and development.
    Government has long realised that given the constraints, it is difficult to reach everyone to provide quality healthcare. The PPP model in Telemedicine is helping in delivering quality healthcare to wider set of citizens who earlier could not be reached. The development in various fields including telecommunications, Information Technology have further aided in providing healthcare to the poor and the needy, which in turn is creating new market opportunities for the market players.
    The urban population has always had the benefit of specialist healthcare, Telemedicine is fulfilling the promise for rural population as well.
