IIM Bangalore to host healthcare leadership summit Ayusmat 2019 on March 03

Bengaluru: IIM Bangalore will host the healthcare leadership summit Ayusmat 2019 on March 03 (Sunday), 2019, an event which is a platform for academicians, researchers, students, practitioners, policy makers, CXOs of healthcare organizations, health-tech consultants, venture capitalists, start-ups and thought leaders in the field of healthcare.

Ayusmat 2019 aims to bring bright minds together to foster sharing of ideas, provoke conversations that matter, promote exchange of knowledge and drive collaboration amongst healthcare practitioners.

Cost, Quality and Accessibility are three aspects that pose the greatest challenge for efficient healthcare service delivery. Different sectors interlacing with healthcare, namely Finance, Management and Leadership, Policy, Technology, Insurance, Pharmaceutical, and Start-ups, amongst others, play a significant role in designing service delivery systems that balance these dilemmas. The closer healthcare providers come to the ideal of high medical access and quality at the lowest possible cost, through innovative approaches from these sectors, the better they are at delivering value-based care in their healthcare models. The deliberations of the conference aim to address these issues in further detail.
