Being organized in association with Indian Medical Association, two-day conference is to tackle important issues in the health care and related industry. Renowned authorities, CEOs of Health-Sectors, medical practitioners, nurses, students from across India are participating in it.

During the inaugural session Dr. Giridhar Gyani, Ex-CEO Quality Council of India, touched the topic on ‘Quality & Accreditation, Price and Quality Transparency: How do we deliver better tools for patients’. Dr Gyani shared that no doubt India has attained much but its human development index is much lower. India needs to integrate education and health- care, and that too from primary level. Primary education teachers should be super ones as the IQ of very young ones increases at fast pace. In addition to universities & colleges, there should be accreditation of schools also. India has to play a lead role as per ‘WHO’ and much is to be done in the area of healthcare. He said: “In next five years all metro towns will only have smart hospitals. Healthcare sector is going to be the most important sector of tomorrow. So, multidisciplinary university like LPU is right place to be a great part of this.”
Welcoming all, Chancellor Mittal said: “It is a matter of great pride for hosting a conference of such a stature first time in Jalandhar. This healthcare conference is certain to set new norms. When we talk of hospitals we imagine about doctors, nurses and lab technicians only. However, in present day scenario hospital administration plays a key role and is more important than other wings of it. Our hospitals are at par with top hospitals in other developed countries only due to efficient administration. I invoke all present at the conference to work on these lines and make India a medical tourism hub. I assure that LPU is ready to accord its full support and related resources for this noble cause.”
Ten sessions of the conference are covering important topics including Health care Marketing; Medico Legal Issues; Medical Tourism; Hospital Architecture; Role of Government; Quality and Accreditation; Healthcare, IT and Technology; Startups and Entrepreneurship in Healthcare; Healthcare Insurance; Finance & Investment. Expert speakers of the related domain are guiding the participants during elaborated interactions.
