As Countries progress economically, Healthcare costs increase, so does the ability of people to pay for them. These increased costs are attributed to the use of pharmaceuticals; increased number of visits to the Emergency Department; Longer Hospital stays over the life span of any individual due to longevity and geriatric problems; multiple surgeries, especially after attaining 60 years of age and increased use of technology to deliver and receive Healthcare.

With the rapid rate of socio-economic growth that is being witnessed all across the world, the volume of Healthcare services required will have a significant impact on the economy, consumers, and Healthcare professionals in any country.

It is our firm belief that most countries in the world shall have to increase their direct spending on delivery of Public Health as well as on Curative Health through Hospitals and other such custodian Healthcare Institutions to at least 10 of their Gross National Income in next 7 – 15 years.

This increased availability of resources for Healthcare shall impact Healthcare Industry in a major way in next two decades. It shall not only integrate the Healthcare delivery across all countries, developing or developed, but will also standardise various Healthcare delivery modules and the outcome of this Healthcare delivery.

It shall definitely improve Life Expectancy at birth, lower the Infant Mortality Rates, Maternal Mortality rates, which together shall lead to increased population burden.
