Medical Technology Association of India (MTaI), which represents leading research-based medical technology companies with significant investments in manufacturing, R&D and healthcare worker training in India, is organising its flagship event ‘MTaI MedTekon 2019’ on 20th December 2019 to deliberate upon ‘Fostering & Fortifying Ayushman Bharat’s Foundations’.

Hon’ble Minister of Health & Family Welfare Dr Harsh Vardhan has been invited to inaugurate the MTaI MedTekon 2019 at The Leela Palace, New Delhi. The convention will have participation from key ministries, public and private sector think tanks, hospital groups, healthcare investors, patient groups, insurance industry, medical technology and pharmaceutical industry among others.

Ayushman Bharat was launched last year as the Centre’s flagship health programme to provide access to affordable healthcare for the un-served and under-served. The scheme covers 50 crore people from low-income households. Beneficiaries could avail treatment for specific medical conditions in hospitals that have enrolled in the programme. More than 47 lakh people availed treatment in the first year of the scheme.

The Ayushman Bharat programme rests on four pillars - Providers, Insurance Industry, Investors and the MedTech/Pharma Industry – and the programme’s success will depend on involving each stakeholder in implementation.
