Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, June 20, 2013 — (Business Wire India) — Noted Healthcare Economist & Award Winning Indian American Surgeon Dr. Mukesh Hariawala will deliver an important Keynote Address at the 4th Annual India Leadership Conclave & Indian Affairs Business Leadership Awards 2013 ( organised by Asia’s most analytical news media Indian Affairs ( in association with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India at a power packed industry gatherings on Friday,21st June 2013 in a suburban hotel in mumbai,india. Network 7 Media Group is organizing its historic 4th Edition of India Leadership Conclave 2013 with top leading faces of India addressing at the conclave under the theme “New India, Agenda For Change”. More than 300 business tycoons, diplomats, politicians, social reformers & delegates from middle east, Europe are expected to attend the high profile set to throw a new directions to the new India.

Dr. Mukesh Hariawala will specially fly from Boston, US, to India to deliver the Keynote Address on ” Barack Obama’ 2nd Term, Business Implications on Indian Healthcare System”. With the president’s re-election, “Obamacare” moveing forward, President Obama’s health plan, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), includes provisions that require upgrades to health care IT; many health systems already have begun the process of converting to electronic medical records. The ACA also has provisions that directly affect consumers, such as allowing everybody to apply for health insurance electronically. The changes also encourage more electronic communication and coaching between providers and patients, such as video chats instead of office visits. In general, Americans can expect a continuation of Obama’s first-term technology policies. Look for more battles over how much control telecommunications companies have over the Internet, and for efforts to shore up cyber defenses and increase access to broadband. There are mixed responses in India on what Indian Healthcare system is going to gain out of the Obamacare, Experts feel that Dr. Mukesh Hariawala’s lecture will throw new lights & open up wider debate considering Hariawala’s close understanding of Indo-American business implications. In a statement to Indian Media, Hariawala has stressed Medical Tourism revenues, increased IT contracts, generic drug company revenues, overseas insurance company investments in Indian healthcare facilitated by friendly retail FDI policies, all cumulatively would accelerate the GDP trajectory from a limping 5% to the earlier projected 8% rate. This undoubtedly will help increased multi sector employment and improve living standards for a good portion of the Indian population.”

Speaking on Dr. Hariawala’ acceptance of Invitation to address the strong intellectual gatherings, Satya Brahma, Chairman & Editor-In-Chief of Pharmaleaders ( ” While Indian Inc has welcomed President Obama’s 2nd term as a good news for India, there are many who are doubtful of Obamacare policy & the business implications in India considering Obama’s disastrous first tenure which remained in words & did not significantly change the indo-Us business environment. While President Obama is struggling hard to keep everybody happy specially the Healthcare Insurance Policy, Dr. Mukesh Hariawala’s Keynote is expected to dispel the myths & misunderstandings & bring cheers to Indian inc with a wide array of reforms & policy formulations in coming days, said Satya in a release.

India is best positioned to take advantage with its extensive network of highly qualified well trained doctors supported by an infrastructure of world class corporate hospitals offering the same services as the US, at 20% of all inclusive costs for most procedures. This according to Florida based MTA (Medical Tourism Association) could bring in billions of dollars of revenue giving birth to a highly competitive parallel healthcare industry. ” Obamacare ” will also necessitate revamping of all the computing systems handling healthcare which would open a wide door of business opportunity for Indian IT companies. Purely for financial reasons, this will in all likelihood compel the US government to continue large outsourcing contracts. The key economic driver of Obamacare vision is to reduce the trillion dollar healthcare burden on the exchequer. One method likely to be employed is government supported encouragement in larger usage of generic medicines for the US population. This major paradigm shift could benefit the competitively priced Indian generic drug manufacturers who could dominate the supply chain, said Dr. Hariawala.
