NEW DELHI, India, November 7, 2011 -

Partnered With CIMGLOBAL, the January 30, 2012 Event Will Explore Health 2.0 Technologies in Key Emerging Market

Health 2.0 isn’t just a conference; it’s an entire global network and movement.

Health 2.0 India will take place in New Delhi, India on January 30, 2012 at The Leela Kempinski Gurgaon. The Indian healthcare sector is on a fast growth track. A growing economy, lifestyle-related health issues, improving healthcare insurance penetration, government initiatives and increasing disposable income are the key drivers that will create a robust future for this industry in India. India differs vastly from other destinations in terms of cost, infrastructure, human resources, patient perceptions, competencies, and the level of government support. It has an enormous potential for future growth and development.

Part of a leading conference series - even inspiring people from venues beyond healthcare - Health 2.0 India will focus on the specific opportunities of the Indian market in content & search, physician  and provider networks, patient communities, clinical trials, wellness & behavior change tools, medical tourism, mobile devices and smart phones.

“Health 2.0 technologies intersecting with ancient culture; where modern medicine and technology collide with the Ayurvedic mindset; where mobile health connects the poor, and health tools strengthen social development initiatives, these are all themes which will resonate during the conference,” said Indu Subaiya, co-chairman and CEO of Health 2.0.

The conference organizers will be joined by visionary leaders from across industries to tackle some of the biggest issues in healthcare from food techresource limits, health education, policy and prevention, to new analytics for mining patient data to exploring innovative models to lower the cost of care.

“We’re thrilled to bring Health 2.0 India to New Delhi. We’re going to explore how innovators in emerging markets are impacting how healthcare is delivered to the masses. We will contrast and contextualize the best of Indian web and mobile technologies for healthcare and how others can learn and build on their successes,” said Matthew Holt, co-chairman of Health 2.0.

“It’s clear that the web has enabled innovators in emerging economies to think different,” said James Mathews, Health 2.0 India Chair. “Health 2.0 India will be a gathering of remarkable individuals and organizations that have refused to conform to traditional expectations and limitations. We will all learn, connect and build from the conversation that gets started in New Delhi.”

“Health 2.0 has inspired people from venues beyond healthcare to tackle some of the biggest healthcare issues,” added Pascal Lardier, international director at Health 2.0. “This event will convene all the leaders and stakeholders in web 2.0 technology for health in India:  ITC solution providers, health professionals, patient organizations, health policy officials, public and private health care organizations, medical devices and pharmaceutical companies, telecom groups, investors…”

“Society at large, comprising of people from all walks of life is involved in the matters of Health as individuals, families and communities. Our goal in bringing Health 2.0 to India is to achieve optimal health for all through the sharing of knowledge & innovations, giving all a chance to lead socially and economically productive lives,” added Prasant Saha, co-partner Health 2.0 India.
