Medium launches 'Pebble in the Pond' series of discussions to improve heathare with a human touch
Hyderabad 15th April 2019: Medium, a leading healthcare consulting firm focusing on performance transformation in Heatlhcare sector has decided to undertake a host of initaitives in Hyderabad like conducting panel discussion, conferences, white papaer or research presentation, which would address a number of issues and challenges being faced by the public in the Indian Healthcare sector.
As part of this Medium Helathcare has decided to launch its thought leadership series, “Pebble in the Pond”. Through this series, Medium plans to undertake a host of initiatives through panel discussions.
Ratan Jalan, Managing Director, Medium Healthcare Consulting. said, “To kickstart the initiative, we are organizing a Panel Discussion in Hyderabad with the subject being Has Medicine Lost Its Soul? And we aim to sensitize different stakeholders about the possibilities and the road ahead. When it comes to medicine losing its soul, we shouldn't 'deny' the problem or make it look like an insignificant aberration. It is not about 'which shade of grey'; we are not talking about pointing fingers at a particular institution or a category."
Since the panel largely represents the so-called private or corporate sector, we focus on identifying certain triggers or deciphering the ecosystem, which is fostering such a scenario; and then, suggesting a few solutions for 'we as captains' to adopt. In our view, we shouldn't dwell excessively on what 'others' should do, be it the government, the consumer or the media.
Healthcare industry, today, could take a leap of faith in redefining the way it conducts business: with a more holistic view about different stakeholders. And as we spoke, it is not to be confused either with CSR or with diluting the 'traditional' business goals.
Panelists from a pool of eminent healthcare professionals who discussed on shaping the future of healthcare, includes Ameera Shah Managing Director, Metropolis India, Bhavdeep Singh Former CEO, Fortis Healthcare, Dr Chandy Abraham CEO, Healthcare Vertical, ITC Ltd, Dr Evita Fernandez Managing Director, Fernandez Hospitals, Dr Harish Pillai CEO, Aster DM Healthcare, India and Lara Bezerra Chief Purpose Officer (MD), Roche India.
