Pharma & Healthcare industry sits at the center of a network spanning research, development, manufacturing, and integrating groundwork with multiple priorities, risk profiles, and operating models.

For India, such a network is complicated and cumbersome due to its varied outcomes and needs. For us, the process development and scale-up can be laborious. This gives rise to a need to embrace a suite of digitally enabled tools and solutions such as automation, AI, Analytics and high-throughput devices. Such an ecosystem is expected to create and allow for transformation of health orgs.

The Healthcare Summit is an effort to showcase a new and emerging engine for innovation and speed in the country to shape a brighter future for the dynamic, responsive healthcare industry.
