 “Make India a Medical Tourism Hub” – Chancellor, LPU  

Dr Giridhar Gyani, Ex CEO Quality Council of India and LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal inaugurated Punjab’s largest Health Care Conference ‘Hashcon-2016’ at Lovely Professional University today. Civil Surgeon Dr.Kailash Kapoor, President Indian Medical Association (Jalandhar) Dr. RK Gupta, Punjab Medical Council Member Dr. Kapil Gupta, and Director d-wise Healthcare IT Solutions Wg Cdr Dr. CK Babu ( Bangalore) also graced the stage. 

Organized in association with the Indian Medical Association, the two-day conference is to tackle important issues in the health care and related industries. Renowned authorities, CEOs of Health-Sectors, medical practitioners, nurses, and students from across India are here for the conference.

During the inaugural session Dr. Gyani touched up on the topic ‘Quality & Accreditation, Price and Quality Transparency: How do we deliver better tools for patients’. Dr Gyani shared that no doubt India has attained much but its human development index is still very low. India needs to integrate education and health- care, and that too from the primary level. He said: “In the next five years all metro towns will only have smart hospitals. Healthcare sector is going to be the most important sector tomorrow and multidisciplinary university like LPU will be a great part of the change.”

Welcoming all, Chancellor Mittal said: “Hosting a conference of such stature for the first time in Jalandhar is a matter of great pride for us. This healthcare conference is certain to set new trends. When we talk of hospitals we imagine doctors, nurses and lab technicians only, however, today hospital administration plays a key role in delivering quality care to patients and is every bit as important as the other wings. Our hospitals are at par with top hospitals in other developed countries only due to efficient administration. I urge all present at the conference today to work towards making India a medical tourism hub. LPU will be glad to accord its full support to this noble cause.”

The conference will be conducted in ten sessions covering important topics like Health care Marketing; Medico Legal Issues; Medical Tourism; Hospital Architecture; Role of Government; Quality and Accreditation; Healthcare, IT and Technology; Startups and Entrepreneurship in Healthcare; Healthcare Insurance; and Finance & Investment. Expert speakers in each domain will guide the sessions.
