The Why Factor!
Affordability of quality healthcare remains a distant dream in India. Lack of point of care devices and affordability of tests in the nook and corners of the country has been a major aspect of concern in the nation. One of the primary reasons for this unfortunate situation is the dependence of the Healthcare domain on imported devices. India imports more than 85% of medical devices and its accessories thus accounting for the soaring costs to a patient. With the scientific acumen available in the country, this can be readily reversed to bring about a true independence of India in healthcare and make the services more affordable to common man.
To make India Self-Reliant in the domain of healthcare instrumentation by bridging the gap between academic/individual innovations and small and medium enterprises in the industry and provide a platform for indigenous medical device development in the country.
