" PwC and India Health Progress (IHP) have released a whitepaper "Healthcare Unwired - Health Insurance and Healthcare Access" which recommends health insurance as one of the prime drivers behind increasing healthcare access in India. The whitepaper is the outcome of a roundtable meeting held on 24 January 2011 on Health Insurance at India Islamic Cultural Centre, Delhi. The conference was attended by various healthcare and health insurance industry leaders as well as policymakers who emphasized the need to bring in new health insurance schemes at different price points."
I was disappointed that the Report did not talk about how health insurance companies can promote health by prescribing Information Therapy ! It makes business sense for health insurance to empower patients with information - and this is a great opportunity to create a win-win for everyone !
