November 6, 2019 – Vivanta by Taj, Yeshwantpur
A power-packed day with keynotes, panel discussions, industry success stories, startup success stories and a distinguished industry roundtable – the HealthTech Summit at #NPC2019 was a resounding success, bringing together the ecosystem players on one platform for constructive measures in healthcare”
Raghuram Janapareddy, Director, Lifesciences & Healthcare, NASSCOM Center of Excellence IoT & AI opened the day-long summit with a special mention about the evolving digital focus in healthcare services by governments and private institutions across the globe. The importance of this topic is sufficiently endorsed by WHO, which constituted a Digital Health Advisory Group comprising 20 global leaders and a Roster of 280 digital health experts, whose aim will be to provide high-level global strategic advice and support to the WHO Secretariat on digital health & deliberate on new areas of intervention.
NASSCOM Healthcare Initiative – Design, Discover & Scaleby Pramod Bhasin, Founder of Genpact & Chairman of Clix Capital
“An aggregated approach to consolidate innovation is required to take healthcare in the right direction in India.”
Pramod Bhasin is currently guiding us on the NASSCOM Healthcare Initiative – a collaborative platform built on the tenets of “Design, Discover & Scale”, intended to be neutral for the development and nurturing of digital innovation in healthcare. The tremendous strain on healthcare systems, exacerbated by acute shortage of nurses, physicians, specialists, equipment and primary & tertiary care hospitals (in rural areas) need to be addressed. Newer & disruptive methods, with a consolidated approach to innovation can deliver healthcare to every corner of the country. Pramod also emphasized the need for enhanced health awareness campaigns to reduce the burden on healthcare delivery.
HealthTech as a front runner in Healthcare Delivery – The Providers’ Perspectiveby Dr. Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Health & President of NATHEALTH
“The paradigm shift in healthcare today – from dealing with & treating illness at an advanced stage to promoting wellness from an early stage”
Delivering first-world level healthcare in a third world country is a challenge faced by several developing nations today, including India. With a sizeable amount of the population living in fringe areas and rural pockets, where access to healthcare is a Herculean task, the onus is on technology to bridge this gap. Dr.Ballal strongly advocates the doctors & physicians to adopt and evangelize technology, else they risk becoming obsolete. Massive digitization drives are happening in hospitals in the form of EHR & EMR, tech-enabled drug delivery systems & diagnosis and remote disease management. Other technology interventions at the physician care level include E-ICUs, remote monitoring & outpatient monitoring, robotic surgeries, AI for accurate diagnosis, 3D printing of tissues & vessels and nanotechnology. What needs to be done is cost management of these solutions, and preferably lesser time in hospitals.
Micro & Macro Trends and Future of HealthTech in World
“NCDs are no longer a rich person’s phenomena – Optum aims to bring down healthcare costs using technology”
The cost of healthcare is around 5-10% of income, while the growth rate of one’s income on average is 2-3% – such a wide gap in spend versus income is a key factor creating a strain on healthcare ecosystems. More people are living with chronic NCDs such as cardiac problems, cancer & diabetes. Optum aims to deliver value by improving quality of healthcare using technology. Several prominent trends include comprehensive profiling of an individual (medical history, ailments, drug consumption patterns and reactions,) and the use of AI & ML algorithms to deduce patterns; health navigators and aggregators to sync up with personal care physicians that can provide counselling; application of genomics; developing a system of accountability for physicians and insurers to ensure patient care is not hindered; exploring synergies between hospitals and insurance companies to provide housing opportunities for the sick & recovering.
Panel Discussion: Accelerating the Healthcare Delivery – Is Technology a Bane or Boon?
Dr. Suresh Kuppuswamy, Director –Transformational Health, Frost & Sullivan
Focus on the proliferation of telemedicine is where technology can really help healthcare scale & traverse boundaries. Technology doesn’t act in isolation and needs widespread integration & adoption to thrive.
Dr Sunita Maheshwari, Chief Dreamer, Telerad Solutions
Telemedicine and smart apps for physicians have accomplished a lot so far. Technology has also proven its mettle with providing accuracy in testing such as brain bleeds, tumors, malignant growths and more. And of course, without digitized records today, hospital care would be very different – an unimaginable load on patients and doctors alike.
Dhruv Suri, Partner, PSA Legal
The advantages of data in healthcare are massive but this comes with caveats. With legislations such as GDPR and the Data Protection Bill in India becoming an integral part of data collection and usage, healthcare companies need to ensure proper protocols are in place while gathering & storing patient data. Privacy By Design should be the new mantra for companies, where they can build technology solutions for healthcare by incorporating privacy standards from the beginning. Informed consent is the way ahead in this industry as unlocking data (after complete user approval) holds huge potential for use cases, pattern recognition and new datasets.
Dileep Mangsuli, Chief Technology Officer, GE Healthcare
20% of Indian startups today are focused on healthcare but not all of them are successful. They face immense challenges scaling or bringing the product to a larger market. Sometimes, it is necessary to question if all these companies are developing solutions based on the need of the industry. This is where curated co-creation programs come in where there is clear communication on the pain points and what technology solutions could possibly address these challenges.
Dr Arvind Kasaragod, Group Medical Director, CloudNine Group of Hospitals
Product development can be considered successful only when it makes a life easier, not harder. It is important to understand a problem or challenge first, before developing solutions that do little to solve a pain point. Moreover, no business can be successful if the economics & profitability studies aren’t on point. Today, the healthcare industry has thousands of players – hospitals, pharma companies, MedTech manufacturers, digital health platforms, and even technology providers & government. Collaboration, not competition, is needed to address challenges within the system that’s bigger than all the players.
Panel Discussion: Nurturing HealthTech Innovation Eco-System
Dr. Taslimarif Saiyed, Director & CEO, C-CAMP (Moderator)
Emphasising on the need for a mature ecosystem in healthcare that can identify the right problems, harness technology & develop capabilities for enhancing GTM & overall success in product.
Ravi Narayan, CEO, T-Hub
While startups have been around since 2005, it was only from 2013 that companies started coming forward with their points of view on industry challenges and then became more specific about their needs. This helped provide the much-needed context to innovators to devise solutions. Yet, most startups seemed to skim off the top and failed to do a deep dive into these challenge areas with technology. In HealthTech alone, there are close to 5,000 startups. 65% of them are addressing fitness, personal health management, and wellness. The use of IT has been restricted to organizing data, not to get to the core of the problem.
Venkatraman Ravikumar, Sr Director & Head, India R&D, Baxter Innovation & Business Solution
The building blocks of the ecosystem are in place with the government, hospitals, technology players, pharma companies, R&D, startups. Now, it’s the seamless collaboration between all these pieces that need to be achieved. It is a combination of several factors that includes problem identification, go to market, scaling strategies, RoI, adhering to medical regulations & laws. A great example of this synergy would be ISRO –a govt-led organization that has managed to engage with all its stakeholders to produce tangible impact. We need to have a similar success model for healthcare.
Dr. Anoop Amarnath, Chief of Clinical Services, Manipal Hospitals
While the conversation has positively shifted to wellness, in India, one has to factor in the element of incentives. This is a hugely definitive data point while developing solutions for easy adoption and acceptance across the spectrum.
Anjali Ajaikumar, Vice President – Strategy & Quality, HCG Enterprises
Where an opportunity exists is filling the need for equipment in hospitals and avoiding needless expenditure on inventory. This is where startups can work with hospitals to understand their needs and develop products that can probably used via a PPP model. Moreover, taxes collected for healthcare benefits need to be utilized for prevention.
START-UP SUCCESS STORIES – CROSSING THE BARRIERS FOR SCALING UP
Dr. Charit Bhograj, Cofounder, Tricog Health
Tricog Health is India’s first cardiologist-certified instant ECG solution. They have diagnosed 1.5 million ECGs to date, and more than 20,000 heart attacks have been detected. They have more than 1,300 installations in a range of hospitals and clinics across India.
Dr.Rajani Battu, Cofounder & CMO, Eyestem
Eyestem is a leading cell therapy company, aimed at developing a scalable cell therapy platform to treat incurable diseases. Their main product is EyeCyteRPE aimed at treating Dry AMD – the largest cause of incurable blindness in people above the age of 60.
INDUSTRY SUCCESS STORY – DIGITAL PATIENT EXPERIENCE JOURNEY
Ashokkan SomuveerappanChief Information Officer, Columbia Asia Hospital Pvt Ltd.
“Our goal is to provide an omnipresent digital experience, be it in person, via mobile, or desktop.”
Recognized as Best Healthcare Brand for the year 2019-20 by The Economic Times, Columbia Asia embarked upon an ambitious journey of providing a seamless Patient Experience using Technology. Working extensively with a host of healthcare platform providers and HealthTech innovators as part of their core digital strategy, the organization has transformed the care delivery to newer heights. With six IP platforms, and having digitized health records for 10 years, Columbia Asia had a lot of data on hand to develop one of the most cutting-edge systems for an enhanced digital patient experience.
They devised an over-arching plan comprising 11 basic steps that a patient goes through from the time he enters the hospitals till he leaves and digitized this entire journey. The action plan was to understand what the patient needs, assess what the hospital could already do, and how technology can fill these gaps. This system has more than 70 features, and assesses revenue generation, operational efficiency, patient experience and clinical outcome, allowing the physicians to decide the quality of care and levels of deployment per case.
SPECIAL SESSION: CONVERGENCE OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG) FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE IN INDIA
Dr. Nachiket Mor, PhD, Health Economist(Former India Director – Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)
“State governments in India have conventionally moved the needle on healthcare reforms, the Central government, by design, is a smaller player.”
Health is one of the seventeen goals of the United Nations SDGs, and urge countries to push their scope of work in such critical areas. India spends nearly 4% of its aggregate GDP on health – roughly amounting to 8-9 lakh crores per year. State governments are largely in control of driving the healthcare mandate. In India, a raft of diseases continue to affect the population – right from tuberculosis, lymphatic filariasis to cancer and diabetes. Maternal & child mortality rates are also quite high. Nearly 9.5 lakh children die of conditions that are treatable and avoidable. There is enough data to develop solutions based on immediate needs of the population.
EXPERT SESSION: SCALING THE INDIAN DIGITAL HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGH – NATIONAL DIGITAL HEALTH BLUEPRINT (NDHB)
Sri J.SatyanarayanaChairman of the Committee on National Digital Health Blueprint
“Effectiveness is doing the right things;
efficiency is doing it right.”
The National Digital Health Blueprint has analysed the Indian healthcare system from close quarters and developed a plan of action; and guide the healthcare ecosystem by a set of common principles. A Data Protection Bill exists, which aims to persevere user integrity; and the NDHB aims to accelerate the healthcare industry’s growth within acceptable frameworks. Some principles include scaling solutions fast (by thinking big, starting small and scaling fast); ensuring a single source of information for easy traceability – for a complex ecosystem like healthcare, information should exist in a federated architecture; open APIs for easier integration of services and leveraging past accomplishments for a better future. A public consultation was led to collect industry feedback from 70 organizations. Overall, the aim of the federated architecture is to ensure strong data privacy, elaborating the roles of the state and central governments, and make the value-add for innovation more prolific. Patient data will be held at a single Point of Collection (PoC) rather than being distributed across channels. While mature enterprises with robust IT architectures can integrate the NDHB framework, smaller ones cannot so we would like to approach licensed partners for IT integration. The entire framework will be interoperable, reusable, with standards & with APIs. A separate organization will be set up with the singular mandate of driving this blueprint and ensure its applicability across the ecosystem. Success metrics will be measured on adoption rate, capacity building, change management and innovation.
All together a great event well attended by more than 150 professionals from the Healthcare Eco-System.

PlugO is India’s first smart and fully automated power bank rental service. In a short span of time, cofounder Nawal Lodha has taken his revolutionary device to various markets. PlugO devices have been installed in over 100 locations already, and is poised to reach more. Find out how Nawal and his team are developing a network of internet-connected vending terminals to dispense power banks.
Tell us about Plugo & why you built this product?
Plugo is India’s first smart power bank rental & sharing service. We are seeing that there is a surge in consumption of media through mobile devices, & we always need a backup power source like power banks to keep the devices charged all day long. But carrying & maintaining a power bank comes with its own hassles. It’s always convenient to rent, use & return things rather than owning one.
Why is Plugo different from other power banks in the market?
Plugo’s power banks are 5000 mAH capacity with inbuilt cables. There are 3 different types of cables built in it which can charge USB Type B, Type C & all iOS devices. The power banks are sturdy enough to handle extreme usage & conditions and are BIS-certified.
Can you elaborate on the technology solutions enabling /supporting Plugo and its suite of services?
Plugo is primarily a tech company. We have built an Internet of Things (IoT) based, API driven platform to integrate use cases in the shared economy space. Our firmware and hardware modules support long-lasting, future-proof applications with the highest uptime. Plugo leverages a multi-level security architecture encompassing network Encryption over TLS and x.509 certificates, application level data encryption and ICC level authentication, etc. The experience is served through mobile and progressive web apps. We have done many distinctive innovations for the Indian market. The design and the security features are patent-pending.
How popular is this model? What do you think is the main reason for its popularity?
Plugo has been greatly appreciated by its users. To have an understanding of its popularity the below statistics can be helpful. Plugo has delivered 3 million minutes of charging, has more than 3000+ users & more than 40% are repeat users. The main reason for its popularity is that it’s a kind of solution which has no other simpler alternative & that for people their devices are a necessity & has to be powered on for the entire day. Usually they need backup power in form of power banks to keep their devices on & carrying a power bank has its own hassles for instance, you need to carry charging cables along with it & also charge the power bank before you leave your house. And, of course we have the first movers advantage.
How many units of Plugo have been actively installed and where?
Plugo has been installed at around 100+ locations including hospitals, restaurants, pubs, co-working spaces, etc. To name a few locations Plugo is present at Nasscom 10k Warehouse, Manipal Hospital, The HSR Club, Hang Over Lounges, Swiggy Kitchens, Deloitte, etc
Can you explain the primary challenge you are trying to solve through your company?
The Primary challenge that we are trying to solve through Plugo is the fact that India has more than 100 million power banks with less than 1% utilization. Plugo aims to reduce the planet’s Lithium foot-print by removing the need for people to own power banks & replace it with a shared economy of power banks where they can rent it.
What lies ahead for Plugo?
Our immediate focus is to make Plugo services available across multiple cities in India and 2 international destinations within the next 6 months. Our mission is to make Plugo synonymous for anything shared. With the shared power bank use case, we would be able to connect thousands of offline stores with lakhs of users and shall drive a consumer-behaviour change. We’d like to leverage the same for many similar use cases like an EV battery-swapping.

The world is changing at a rapid pace with Artificial Intelligence (AI) being at the forefront in this scenario. From smartphones to chatbots, AI is already ubiquitous
“AI can enable humans to focus on the parts of their role that add the most value.” – Anonymous.
Today many companies are investing heavily on AI and Big Data, and believe that these technologies will help in digital transformation. According to the survey by IDC, AI represented around 12$ billion investment in 2017.
What is AI?
Before we deep dive further, let us understand what is AI?
For many people even today, it seems unclear what this technology is all about. AI is a branch of computer science that deals with the intelligent behaviour of machines.
Importance of AI
“AI is a boon bestowed upon us and it will positively affect over lives in multiple ways”, says Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook.
How AI will help to transform OUR lives in the future?
Here are five critical industries where AI is helping to change the world and transform our lives:
There is definitely great potential for AI in healthcare industry as it helps to predict and prevent diseases in time. According to a report, 86% of healthcare providers will use AI across the globe to provide healthcare facilities to patients. By 2020, it estimated that the expenditure on AI projects in healthcare will reach $54 million. You can use AI in many areas related to healthcare, such as managing medical records, analyzing tests, X-rays, virtual nurses, and so on. Some of these are already been used by few healthcare providers that are helping to transform human lives.
AI can serve as a boon for the retail sector that gathers and possesses customer data as it will revolutionize the sector. AI can help create more personalized shopping experience to the customers using the data based on their likes and dislikes. Another benefit that AI can give to its customers is to get the customer to buy more by giving them with discounts or coupons for a given product even before the customers are ready to buy the product. There are various ways where AI can be used in the retail sector as the list is endless and the examples listed above are just a tip of iceberg.
Travel & transportation are another two industries where AI is up for transformation significantly. With the advancement of technology, transportation sector has also evolved to a level where vehicles and navigate and move without any human assistance. Leveraging AI in transportation sector has a great impact on passenger’s safety and it helps to reduce traffic congestion and accidents. In addition, AI is also been used to forecast the paths for pedestrians and cyclists thus decreasing any mishap to occur. One of the common examples of AI is Google map that can analyze and movement of traffic at any given time.
You can also AI in the manufacturing industry to perform a variety of processes and tasks especially in the production department. AI can be utilizes in those tasks in the manufacturing industry that prove to be hazardous to the human beings thus avoiding any accidents to occur. There are a lot of manufacturing companies in US who are slowly adopting AI to run leaner supply chains so the cost of transportation and wastage can be reduced. AI has a great impact in the growth of any manufacturing company as it helps to reduce cost of labor and provides increase in accuracy and speed. It is predicted that the usage of AI will see a impending rise in production by 40% by 2035.
Last but not the least, AI is also transforming the finance industry by storm. There are many leading financial institutions who are implementing chatbots to provide better services to its customers. There are a few companies who use deep learning system to sort out unreliable merchants and also trace out sales of illegal products. In addition, AI helps banking and financial institutions to manage the large amount of data and detect any kind of irregularity in the transactions. You can also AI to forecast trading volatility, and manage wealth and assets via machine learning.
AI has been useful in developing many solutions to make our life simpler. It has been transforming various industries.

Nasscom recently submitted its revised inputs on the Draft e-Commerce Guidelines for Consumer Protection 2019 (‘draft e-Commerce Guidelines’) to Department of Consumer Affairs. The salient points of our recommendations are summarised below:
We have recommended the following definition of ‘e-Commerce entity’:
“E-Commerce entity” means a product seller conducting e-Commerce business whether through inventory based model of e-Commerce, or market place based model of e-Commerce, or both.
We have modified the definition of ‘e-Commerce entity’ to refer to the definitions used in the 2019 Act and the draft e-Commerce Guidelines.
The term, ‘product seller’, used in our recommended definition refers to a ‘person’ (defined in the 2019 Act and covers individuals as well as juristic persons). Therefore, there is no need for the definition of an e-Commerce entity to separately specify all the possible juristic persons (“a company incorporated under the Companies Act, 1956 or the Companies Act, 2013, a foreign company as defined under Section 2(42) of the Companies Act, 2013, or an office, branch or agency in India” etc.)
Further, since under Section 2(37)(c)(II) “electronic service provider” is included within the definition of a “product seller”, we have deleted the reference to electronic service providers from the definition of e-commerce entity.
We have however, retained references to the phrases “inventory based model of e-commerce” and “marketplace based model of e-commerce”, both of which are defined under the draft Guidelines.
Accordingly, our recommended definition tries to capture the intent of the current definition by covering all domestic and foreign businesses (whether inventory based model of e-Commerce or market place based model of e-Commerce) which are conducting e-Commerce in India.
Section 1(2) of the 2019 Act covers the entire jurisdiction of India. This means that any e-Commerce entity operating in India will be covered under the draft e-Commerce Guidelines. Hence, the requirement to be a registered legal entity under the laws of India is disproportionate and not justified.
If the intent behind the draft e-Commerce Guidelines is to require local incorporation of all e-Commerce entities, this would need to be by way of a legislative enactment and not through the draft e-Commerce Guidelines or an advisory. The requirement of local incorporation by itself does not ensure consumer protection or prevent unfair trade practices. The requirement to be a registered legal entity exceeds the delegated legislation making power.
Contact details, such as phone numbers and email IDs of sellers, are treated as business confidential information, since disclosure of the same will lead to diminution of the commercial value of such information and cause serious injury to the business interests of all e-commerce entities. Furthermore, not all sellers utilising the services of an e-Commerce entity will necessarily have a dedicated website.
We have suggested limiting the extent of information disclosure to the legal name, address and GST number of the seller on the sales invoice to harmonize the same with existing rules in this regard under the CGST Rules, 2017, the Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 2011 and FDI Press Note 2(2018).
The prohibition against directly or indirectly influencing the price of goods or services interferes with the freedom of inventory-based e-Commerce entities to carry on their business and undermines their fundamental business models, based on offering discounts. Therefore, we have recommended that the prohibition against directly or indirectly influencing the price of goods or services should only be applicable to marketplace e-Commerce entities.
The reasons for publicly displaying the contractual terms between the seller and the e-Commerce entities are not clear, given that these terms do not concern the customers and there is no privacy of contract with the customer.
We recommend that instead of an e-commerce entity being mandated to disclose terms with the seller, the e-Commerce entity should be required to display the customer facing and governing policies of return, refund, exchange, warranty / guarantee, delivery / shipment, mode of payments, grievance redressal mechanism etc. This will ensure that the consumer interest is adequately protected.
The draft e-Commerce Guideline 4(ix) imposes obligation on an e-Commerce entity to delist counterfeit goods on its platform on being informed about the counterfeit product “by the consumer” or if it “comes to know by itself or through another source”. Further, after delisting the counterfeit product, the e-Commerce entity “must notify the consumers of the same”.
We have recommended that the phrase, “comes to know by itself or through another source”, should be deleted. According to the decision of the Supreme Court in Shreya Singhal, actual knowledge of unlawful content by an intermediary could only be formed on the basis of a court or government (executive) order. As an e-Commerce entity may also be an ‘intermediary’ under section 79 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 (‘IT Act’), it is recommended that knowledge on the part of an e-Commerce entity under the Model Rules should have the same meaning as knowledge under the intermediary guidelines, in order to harmonise the obligations of an e-Commerce entity under both the Model Rules and the IT Act and the rules made thereunder. Further, the requirement to inform consumers about delisted counterfeit products should only extend to the complainant consumers and those consumers whose orders have not been fulfilled as on the date of obtaining such knowledge.
We have recommended that the contributory or secondary liability of an e-Commerce entity with respect to authenticity of goods sold on its platform should arise only where the e-Commerce entity has expressly vouched for or guaranteed that goods sold on its platform are authentic.
Attached below is our revised submission to Department of Consumer Affairs. In case of any additional comments or queries, please write to email@example.com.
[Update: In a later development, the Department of Consumer Affairs released draft Consumer Protection (e-Commerce) Rules, 2019 (‘draft e-Commerce Rules’) for public comment. The draft e-Commerce Rules are identical to the draft e-Commerce Guidelines in the rights and obligations that they seek to impose on e-Commerce entities. Therefore, Nasscom’s position on the draft e-Commerce Rules remains the same as our comments on the draft e-Commerce Guidelines.]
As per research by Grand View Research, the global edge computing market, comprising hardware, software, service and edge-managed platforms, is expected to grow @54% CAGR to cross $28 billion by 2025. North America has the largest market share; however, APAC region is the fastest growing.
India too is emerging as a hub for edge services delivery: edge CDNs (content delivery networks) being set up; AWS recently added two edge locations in India. Reliance Jio has also entered the edge CDN space for enhancing video experience.
Many of the integrated technology players have built/are in the process of building an edge business as part of their service/product offerings. Currently, edge computing does not feature as an independent revenue stream for most. It is a component of an integrated solution and as such, is part of the IoT business (from a device perspective) and also of the infrastructure business (cloud/datacenter).
India also has a fairly active startup ecosystem for edge business. In our report, Edge Computing: Towards a More Distributed Future”, we have featured about 25 startups that are focused on edge-native or edge-enabled products and services. With 350+ startups in India focused on IoT, the stage is set for India to take a lead in edge computing.
During our discussions with technology players, some of the emerging trends in edge computing market include the following:
What can no longer be ignored is that edge is here to stay. As the advanced version of IoT embedded with smart features, edge computing is showing tremendous potential and as Forrester Research put it – 2020 is set to be a “breakout year” for edge computing technology.
For more insights on how India’s technology players are setting themselves up for this opportunity, please read our report: “Edge Computing: Towards a More Distributed Future”, Nov 2019
