Tech-enabled care to empower Indian patients

Indian hospital

A new report by Deloitte, the “Future of Health in India”, states that the future of India’s healthcare will be driven by a personalised, digitised, and preventive model of care delivery. Digital and technological innovations, an infrastructure boom, and major government and private initiatives and partnerships will contribute to the transformation of India’s healthcare sector.

Healthcare providers are likely to use a combination of emerging technologies to deliver advanced care irrespective of patient location, the report states, fueled by India’s rapidly expanding digital economy, with more than 75 million fixed wireless access broadband subscriptions in 2021 projected to reach 460 million by 2030.

Private players have furthermore commenced using robotics, telehealth, AI and 5G to deliver tech-enabled care to their patients, while patients themselves are using technology to stay connected to the health ecosystem and take control of their health. 

Projects like Anaemia Mukt Mahilayen, a public-private-academia collaboration drawing on the platform of “Expand the Hospital Ward” to provide healthcare services at the homes of citizens, and Sanjeevani Pariyojana, launched by the Government of Haryana to provide supervised virtual medical care at home for COVID-19 patients, were examples of digital solutions deployed in India provided by the report.
