Takeaways from the #health2india 2014 conference

Attended the Health 2.0 conference in Bangalore over 7 & 8 February that had some very thought provoking sessions on the way technology is shaping the way forward for the healthcare industry.  Also did a live coverage of the event on twitter (ab_aditya) in form of public notes. Here’s a summary:
- The industry is focusing on preventive care driven by advances in technology, particularly cloud, mobile devices, sensors & genomics
- A lot of useful technology already exists and the industry needs to integrate these to create meaningful solutions through collaboration among the various stakeholders
- Challenges include reaching out to the masses untouched by healthcare, providing leave scale quality service with empathy & improving the efficiency of the ecosystem
- Regulators & governments have a very important role to play at the current inflection point in removing obstacles to innovation
- Startups in the West are focusing primarily on consumers, while most in India are targeting healthcare professionals
