Why Healthcare Innovation Is Important?

In 1947 when India became a newly independent country the life expectancy in the country was 32 years. Today life expectancy in India is 65 years. The dramatic rise in life expectancy in India is the result of innovation in healthcare. As a matter of fact innovation in healthcare is the reason that more people across the world today life significantly longer than they did a century ago.

However, while significant gains have been made in healthcare services in India much still need to be to bring the quality of healthcare in India at par with global standards. Consider that while life expectancy in India is an impressive 65 years, in many developed countries an average person lives nearly 20 years longer than an average Indian does today. Also, the infant mortality rate in India at 50 deaths per 1000 births is unacceptably high. Only by innovating in the sphere of healthcare can more Indians expect to live longer and take better care of their families.

Improving the Quality of Primary Healthcare in India

The first point of contact in India for most people suffering from an illness is a primary healthcare provider. However easy access to such a primary health care provider is often difficult for many tens of thousands of Indians. Those with limited access to reliable primary healthcare often resort to other measures to care for their health or for the health of their loved ones. Such measures, substituted in the place of primary health care,can often be pernicious to the health of many who undergo them.

Access to quality primary health care is much needed in India but the gap between the quality of healthcare available in urban centers and that in the interior of the country is vast. This gap can only be bridged by greater innovation in the delivery of healthcare across India.
