Kaleidoscope of Healthcare will present different facets of a variety of elements of healthcare. The three drivers of this ever changing panorama: ?Jugaad? ? a bane and boon, ?Big Pharma Big Troubles? and the ?Healthcare on the Horizon?. Jugaad essentially means ?frugal innovation?? any kind of creative thinking that maximizes the value of resources and outcome. Jugaad also has immense possibilities of getting misunderstood ? get misdirected and misused to show impossible performances. It may work for a while but eventually, spells disaster. FDA is trying to make an example of companies that are trying to push the envelope. With the Emerging Markets (EM) becoming more important, the FDA oversight is also expected to change.

How are they attempting to overcome the most unusual challenges in their history? ??Amputating? themselves to ?improve prognosis?? ? The EM?. ?FDA management? is on the top of the list of the three Key Success Factors. Healthcare on the horizon points to a future totally divorced from where we stand today? entirely new paradigm? Several outstanding discoveries lab grown organs, spray- on-skin to heal without scarring? many more ? The presentation will end with an attempt to prognosticate the future? and a whole lot of 'food for thought'
