THD NewsDesk, New Delhi: In an prominent move, NATHEALTH and APACMED have together to upgrade medical technology in India. The meeting was scheduled with USDG’s and SDG 3, with the idea of improving medical standards and making the most out of technological advancements. This move is pivotal to the plan of a world-class Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in India.
The purpose of this imperative association is to facilitate a coherent path to smoothly enable all innovations with concerted efforts to both the organisations. NATHEALTH and APACMed work collectively to progress with Universal Healthcare in India. It would not only harmonise but also aggregate the endeavours of the government. It amplifies the patient health results through quality care relative to the expenses.
Ms Preetha Reddy, President- NATHEALTH and Vice-Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has been highlighting the fault lines even in the most advanced nations and underlined the acute need for a robust mechanism for UHC.”
The Healthcare Federation of India, in a move to keep up with its promise of health development, has become a robust voice in the Asia Pacific Medical Technology Association (APACMed). The Regional Association of Medical Technology in the Asia Pacific approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to secure the role of medical technology in India.
Ms Harjit Gill, Chief Executive Officer – APACMed said, “With APACMed’s recent entry into India, we reiterate our commitment to working proactively and productively with the Government, and other stakeholders on the ground, to ensure access to innovative and life-saving medical technologies for Indian patients. We commend the Government of India’s commitment to Universal Health Care and its role in the continued growth of a strong and thriving healthcare system. Through this exciting partnership with NATHEALTH, we seek to support the Government further to reinforce the AB-PMJAY ambitions by harnessing the power of technology and innovation innate to the MedTech industry.”
In India, many government schemes like Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) and Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) have improved UHC. The strong collaborative efforts by the Government and private health sector institutions will be the solution to digitally transformed Indian healthcare system. The partnership between NATHEALTH and APACMed in association with MoU will accelerate innovative medical technologies in India. It will lead to high calibrated, affordable healthcare deliveries. The Government’s competent efforts will accomplish UHC’s far-sighted agenda.
