Recently, PM Modi had said, ‘India has now adopted a holistic approach in the healthcare system. Today our focus is on health as well as equally more on wellness. The upcoming budget will further expand our efforts to reform and transform the healthcare system since 8 years. That’s why health-related schemes like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Fit India Mission, Nutrition Mission, Mission Indradhanush, Ayushman Bharat and Jal Jeevan Mission have to be taken to maximum number of people.
what do experts say
On the other hand, experts believe that since the Corona period, such a health infrastructure has started to be built in India, which will not be limited to big cities only and will develop similar arrangements in remote areas as well. Rahul Kumar, associated with the pharmaceutical business, says, ‘After the Corona period, critical healthcare facilities are being started in the country from the block level to the district level. In this budget, the government should focus on better policy as well as implementation. There is no doubt that remote healthcare, telemedicine, teleconsultation came as a solution for about 2.5 crore patients during the Corona period.
After the arrival of 5G network, there is going to be a big change in the healthcare sector in the country.
How much will change in remote healthcare sector
After the arrival of 5G network, there is going to be a big change in the healthcare sector in the country. Especially in rural India, this technology is going to be very useful in reducing the health access divide. Every village of the country is being connected with fiber network. In the coming days, using 5G technology, there can be a fierce competition between the private sector to land remote healthcare.
