With the amplified amount of affluence and awareness created about healthcare aspects among the Indian masses, the upcoming year 2019 will witness a gradual rise in the demand for access to better health care.
The child healthcare sector in India is gradually turning out to become one of the largest and the most emerging domains in present times. The mounting infiltration of health insurance and the rising demand for superior healthcare facilities for children are among the chief elements driving this growth.
With the amplified amount of affluence and awareness created about healthcare aspects among the Indian masses, the upcoming year 2019 will witness a gradual rise in the demand for access to better health care. To further cater to this ever-developing zone, it is expected the Indian government will be focusing more on allocating more resources for setting up primary child health centers not just in the developed zones but also in the far-off areas and equip them sufficiently in the near future.
One needs to note that the deliveries of traditional health care services can no longer hope to keep up with the ever-growing demand. The clamor for experts able to address health concerns beyond what often poorly-skilled general practitioners can handle is getting particularly loud. The major question that demands an instant replay is how are the crores of Indians, who have no access to a health specialist, going to get medical in the upcoming years?
Offering new means of quality medical access to all requires 3 factors that should be addressed: First and foremost the facilities of health professionals must not only be reachable but also should be inexpensive to both urban and rural Indian community. Secondly, health services must come from a genuine and reliable source. Third, ease and convenience is the main aspect for consumers.
Entering the technologically advanced world of smart mobile platforms is soon going to be an inescapable aspect for the child healthcare sector. In current times people lead a busy lifestyle and don’t have the time to wait in long queues for a health check-up and even to get a medical prescription. Hence AI technology and child healthcare apps like the Machine Learning a first-of-its-kind modern-day online prescription is all set to penetrate the Indian pediatric sphere.
Also, parents traveling with kids often face the problem of being unable to reach out to your child health expert in case of an emergency, in such cases the online app like Docterz will come to the rescue to make traveling with kids an effortless affair for parents. India’s child health care sector thus looks self-confident and the path taken now will be prudent in defining its growth trajectory for the upcoming year.
