FICCI has been organizing its annual healthcare conference, FICCI HEAL since 2007 supported by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and recently NITI Aayog, Government of India. Over the years, this has evolved as a landmark event and a credible platform for healthcare stakeholders for sharing knowledge, learnings as well as best practices. The 15th edition of FICCI HEAL on the theme, “Transforming Healthcare beyond COVID” is scheduled from October 20th to 22nd, 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented disruption for the global health ecosystem. While it has highlighted the weaknesses in public policies and healthcare infrastructures, it also brought in the urgency to discover new approaches to respond to the pandemic and subsequent crisis.

For Indian healthcare system, the pandemic has also triggered much needed radical reforms. Today, Healthcare is at the center-stage like never before- whether it is through our increased public spend focus on health or the game-changing innovations and collaborations seen amongst all the stakeholders.

While we work towards our collective capacities for short term health challenges, it is also imperative that we work collaboratively towards pandemic prevention as well as preparedness, and create a definitive roadmap for transformation of future healthcare system beyond the pandemic. This includes enhanced public health measures and communication strategies, better usage of telemedicine and remote patient management, augmented digital technologies, new concepts for healthcare facilities, optimization of operations and costs as well as expanding indigenous production capacities etc.

FICCI HEAL 2021 is an endeavor to converge all stakeholders and provide a forum for sharing of learnings and experiences as well as deliberate on the opportunities for transforming our healthcare system beyond COVID. The conference would be a conglomeration of CEO’s, policy makers, national and international leaders from healthcare and allied industries.

The three-day conference will be organised in a phygital format and will include Keynote Addresses, Panel discussions as well as Plenary Sessions covering the entire spectrum of healthcare delivery- public health, capacity building, insurance, digital health, diagnostics, medical technologies, home healthcare as well as vaccines.
