New Delhi, India (PressExposure) February 15, 2013 -- Mr. Pradeep K Jaisingh, Founding Chairman, HealthStart stated "within a span of last few years the Healthcare Sector in India has undergone a paradigm shift and has become highly visible in the last few years. India's economic growth and rapid urbanization is bringing with it an expected health transition in terms of shifting demographics, increasing ability to afford quality healthcare and demand for quality healthcare services with easy access. At the same time India has the most inequitable healthcare scenario where good quality affordable medical treatment is not available to most of its population. This in turn provides incomparable opportunity to make a direct positive impact on people's lives and also simultaneously presents an incredibly attractive business opportunity to people with ideas and a vision".
"We believe that although there are a lot of entrepreneurs who are interested in the segment and want to start a company, but there is not sufficient support structure to enable and turn their business into a successful business"
This he explained was the idea behind HealthStart. Its objective is to help build an eco-system that can enable strong entrepreneurial system in healthcare and make a direct positive impact on people's lives in India"
