Does healthcare need a new discourse in India? Absolutely. Our country already has the advantage of a strong IT fibre backbone and indigenous satellite communication technology with trained human resources. Over the past few years, digital technologies have revolutionised the tools used to seek information, communicate, prevent and treat diseases by increasing reach, participation, transparency and accountability while lowering costs. No matter where they live, people are increasingly voicing their concerns and challenging unilateral decisions taken by health providers.

But health outreach has to evolve from being top-down to participatory because people want answers before they agree to be a part of India’s development journey. Dealing with people empowered with simplified information makes it more difficult for doctors to use jargon to hedge or obscure the discourse, makes healthcare more participatory and gives people control over interventions that deliver tangible benefits. Healthcare providers, especially in the public sector, must accept technology as a force for good rather as an intrusive burden andincrease engagement to built trust and improve treatment compliance.

India can meet existing and emerging health threats only by accepting that much like in politics, people want to participate in the change they want to see. Those who don’t participate will end up being excluded from India’s growth story.
