Event Details
Event Details: 

In India, the telemedicine market is experiencing exponential growth – driven by the fact that 80% of the doctors are in urban areas and 70% of the population is rural. A relaxed regulatory regime, micropayment structures, widespread availability of cellular devices and increased awareness in the population are leading to rapid proliferation. Leading hospitals have already begun telemedicine efforts and 20+ telemedicine smartphone based players are gearing up. We expect over a million telemedicine operators (para medical personnel) to be operating by 2020.

Specifically, cardiovascular disease is at epidemic levels in India, with 1 in 4 adults at risk; the average age of heart attacks is now around 40. iMedrix, a Silicon Valley Based startup is entering the market with a lightweight, rugged, mobile ECG/EKG device for field screening and triaging. iMedrix went from seed funding to post-trial revenue generation in less than 9 months. iMedrix devices are on a fast path to clinical workflow integration setting a precedent for rapid trials and telemedicine subscription models. In a short period, 1000s of readings have been taken and we anticipate that to grow to over a million later this year.

As we have traversed this path at rocket speed, we have had many valuable learnings. The speakers will present an overview of the Indian telemedicine market and share their insights and experiences.
