Indo-American healthcare economist, surgeon Hariawala to be honoured in Mumbai

Mumbai, June 20 (ANI): Indo-American healthcare economist and well known cardiac surgeon Dr. Mukesh Hariawala will be be honoured in Mumbai with the Indian Healthcare Visionary of the Decade award here.

Dr. Hariawala will receive the award during the fourth edition of India Leadership Conclave and Indian Affairs Business Leadership Awards 2013, being hosted by Indian Affairs, one of Asia's credible news magazine.

Harvard trained and internationally acclaimed, Dr. Hariawala will also deliver the keynote address at the conclave with the theme " President Barack Obama 2nd Term - Business Implications on Indian Healthcare ".

This highly anticipated lecture is expected to attract an elite audience and will dispel negative myths that surround the hotly debated "Obamacare" - President Barack Obama"s Affordable Care Act (ACA), its implementation milestones, changing ecosystems in the US, but importantly its positive impact on the Indian healthcare industry.

In the recent past, Dr.Hariawala emphasized on the 100-billion dollar medical tourism revenue opportunity, increased IT contracts, generic drug company revenues and overseas insurance company investments in Indian healthcare sector facilitated by soft FDI policies of incumbent Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

He believes that the cumulative effect would accelerate India's GDP trajectory from a limping five percent close to the earlier projected eight percent rate.

This undoubtedly will help multiple industry augmented employment and improvement in living standards for a good portion of the Indian population with an overall tangential impact on the national BPL.

Expectantly, this will be refreshing news for the Planning Commission of India and a boost in its implementation of the ambitious 12th - 5 year plan.

Dr.Hariawala further added that " Obamacare " will also necessitate revamping of all the computing systems handling U.S. healthcare which would open a wide door of business opportunity for Indian IT companies.

He believes that the key economic driver of "Obamacare" is to reduce the debt ridden trillion dollar healthcare burden on the U.S. exchequer.

Global experts have suggested that Dr Hariawala's lecture will shed new light and open up a wider debate, considering his deep-rooted intellectual insight of Indo-American business cultures.

Dr.Hariawala is widely regarded as an influential policy thinker, and is expected to elaborate on his popular concepts of " Universal Patient Care " and " Womb to Tomb " economical insurance models for all Indians across the entire spectrum of socio - economic classes.

Apart from Dr. Hariawala, 14 other individuals will also receive awards for their contribution in their area of work.

The conclave aims to create a strong platform for interaction amongst the leaders of today and tomorrow. (ANI)
