Abstract: Indian Healthcare market is worth about 80 Billion Pounds growing at a CAGR of 22.9% and is expected to reach 220 Billion Pounds in 2020. The market is dominated by private players and although there is huge demand for healthcare services, there is also a strong competition between the hospitals in every major city of India. In this talk I will be discussing how descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics are used by the hospitals in India to improve patient experience. Using cases published at the Harvard Business publishing on hospitals such as Apollo, I will be discussing how the Indian hospitals are using analytics to predict the treatment cost that can be used for fixed price contracts with insurance companies and governments and for prediction of net promoters scores (NPS) which is further used for minimizing detractors.
