Australia hails India’s universal healthcare

Abdul Ekram, Trade and Investment Commissioner, Australian Trade and Investment Commission, Australian Government, on Wednesday said that India’s initiative to provide universal healthcare for all their citizens is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

Addressing a press conference here, Abdul said that as part of Australia India business Exchange program organised by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, a 11-member Australian Digital health Trade Mission visited Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad in India from September 1-6 and during the six-day tour, the delegation met with India’s leading public and private healthcare hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturers, telehealth and remote health service providers.

The Australian Digital health trade Mission included senior representatives from Digital health and MedTech companies representing three key areas of health services – Artificial Intelligence (AI), Medical Devices and Electronic health records –, he said Innovation in digital health has been a central pillar of Australia’s approach. Australian solutions in respiratory health, hearing health, remote care and AI in diagnostics and patient care are making an impact in the Indian health ecosystem.

It is an important time to be in India and to be connecting with one of the fastest growing economies and position Australia as a trusted partner in Digital health, said Abdul .

Australia and India share the same vision of imp [lamenting citizen centric decentralised health care to make it efficient and accessible. The Indian government’s initiative to implement a unique health identifier and universal healthcare coverage for their citizens will surely make healthcare efficient, accessible, inclusive and affordable in India, he said.

Similar to India’s vision, over 90 per cent of Australian residents now have ‘ MyHealth’ record, an online summary of patients’ key health information which is accessible at any time by the patient and by healthcare providers when required, he added.

The Delegation including Healthcare Logic Chief Operating Officer Rebecca Freath, Equinox Health Managing Director Ben Richardson and Echo IQ Chief Operating Officer Philip Woolff were also present on the occasion. United News of India
