Abstract

Healthcare spending in India is witnessing a rapid growth of 12%, estimated to reach $195.7 billion by the year 2018. Indian families are becoming aware and not shying away from spending on quality care for their loved ones. Some of the contributing factors of these trends have been rising incomes, lifestyle diseases and increasing access to insurance. To meet the consumer demands, healthcare providers are also gearing up to standardize the quality of service delivery, control cost and enhance patient engagement. Strong mobile technology infrastructure and notable technology initiatives have helped in fuelling this trend. This paper studies one such important initiative that holds great promise in improving the quality of care and reducing costs i.e. digitization of health records through mobile apps that easily connect families with the healthcare ecosystem. The findings in this paper are based on our study of Vytal Healthtech applications, various surveys conducted with clinical and administrative heads of leading Indian Hospitals and interview with medical specialists. This paper discusses the applicability and benefits of such technologies and highlights the right features that address the requirements of Indian healthcare providers, patient communities and Indian urban families. The findings can be of tremendous use to progressive Indian healthcare providers and policy makers
