Indian healthcare is undergoing a transformational change. The changes are going to manifest both in terms of short and long-run implications for transitions in business models, healthcare strategy, health economics and patient centricity, lives of healthcare workers, the use of big data and machine learning-enabled technology for digital provisioning of AI-enabled healthcare, and also regulation in healthcare. All of this means that the requirement for Indian healthcare needs to get more interdisciplinary going forward. Combining expertise from IIMA faculty across various disciplinary competencies, this course aims to fill this gap engaging with various stakeholders in the ecosystem.
