Healthcare in India faces several challenges, including inadequate access, low insurance penetration and a growing chronic disease burden. The central government’s ‘Heal in India’ initiative encourages the domestic manufacturing of medical devices and helps lower the prices patients pay for their medical services.
Healthcare offers the opportunity to find ways to make medical services more understandable, affordable and accessible. In India, the policy environment and regulators are accommodating technological interventions such as the growth of online pharmacies with the requisite controls in place. As a result, healthcare innovation in India will serve as a global model for a shift from treating the sick to preventive care and wellness, given the size of its underserved population.
Here are the top cost-effective brands enabling the best health treatment with excellent infrastructure & technologies in India:
