Having spent 25 years in the healthcare industry, working with the multilateral bodies and organisations across the United States of America, European Union, United Kingdom, Middle East & South-East Asia and the continuum of care, I realised that healthcare needs major transformation across governance, financing and delivery. This requires passionate professionals in healthcare to come together and drive this change bottom-up. Healthcare transformation needs to become a People’s movement. So, the Health Parliament
Parliament is a word that comes with a very high level of responsibility and responsiveness and is sacrosanct in the realm of policy making. My vision is that the Health Parliament will become the platform for brainstorming, debating and ideating the innovative health reforms which will lead to healthcare becoming outcome-driven, accessible and affordable. In the coming decade, the vision is that the influencers in health care across the private and public sector will come from the Health Parliament™. And we will be a major catalyst for healthcare transformation.
We understand that healthcare leadership is bottom line-driven and people generally don’t look at the larger canvas or the bigger picture for healthcare. Through Health Parliament™, we want to broaden the horizons of thinking of people and re-imagine the healthcare as an ecosystem and adopt a systems-approach in solving the major challenges.
Another initiative is the Digital Health Academy™, which eventually will become the world’s first digital health university. We believe that in the coming decades, Digital Health will cease to exist because digital will get incorporated in every aspect of healthcare delivery. It will not be a separate domain. But the challenge of digital adoption lies in the mismatch between technical maturity and organisational maturity. With technical maturity, I mean, there are umpteen technical solutions for every challenge healthcare faces, but the organisation (its people) are not capable of leveraging these technical solutions because they lack the necessary skills and hence, the organisation maturity is low. Through this Academy & University, we wish to provide them courses in digital health to make sure that they have the level of competence to leverage the digital tools to their full potential.
The modules & chapters will be taken by professionals who are either involved in developing or delivering digital solutions. This sets us apart as a unique course in the world. This will help you gain practical insights in using this knowledge by enhancing the skills and competence in the profession and daily practice.
The third initiative – International Patients Union™. The entire healthcare system works for the patient, but the patient is nowhere in the picture because they’re not organized. Through the International Patients Union™, we wish to organize patients based on their medical condition, to make them a force before the industry and the policymakers so that the healthcare is user-centric and not provider-centric. It is not supplier-driven, it is user-driven. This will make healthcare affordable and outcome-driven.
