In this context, the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda is of unprecedented
scope and ambition, applicable to all countries. This Agenda includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets comprising of a broad range of economic, social and environmental objectives. Health has a central place in SDGs: Ensure healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for all at all ages.

Taking into consideration the current  challenges  which  the  healthcare  sector  is  confronted  in context  of  the  SDGs,  this  conference  on “SMART  Healthcare for  India”  will  provide  a platform for deliberation on these important issues.

Sustainable Healthcare, SDGs:
 A sustainable  healthcare is  a  widely discussed  and crucial  issue  for  developing  countries. Sustainable  healthcare  ranges  from  primary healthcare  to  super specialty care,  thereby  engendering  comprehensive  health. India  is seeing a significant improvement in public healthcare, but has to address a multitude of problems.  Governments and  other  stakeholders  should  come  together  to  develop  a framework which is feasible and attainable within available resources.

Managing  Healthcare: 
Well  managed  health  care  setups  have  a  profound  effect  on the  quality  of  care.  As  competition  intensifies,  patient  experience,  service  quality,  and  efficient  resource  management  provides  the  evidentiary  basis  for  measuring  patient, clinician,  and  organizational  outcomes.  With  emphasis  on  “quality  outcomes,”  it  is  becoming increasingly critical  for health care organizations to develop and  implement a sound  management  strategy  for  providing  result
oriented  effective  care.  The  future success  of  the  organization  will  largely  depend  on  judiciously  managing  the  healthcare  institutions while delivering consistently effective and efficient care.

Accessibility    and    Accountability    in    Healthcare: 
Access   to    healthcare    is fundamental  in  the  performance  of  health  care  systems  around  the  world.  However, access   to   health   care   remains   a   complex   notion   as   exemplified   by   the   varying interpretations  of  the  different  agencies.
A  conceptual  framework  and  accountable, health  care system  is  the  need  of the  hour  to  meet the  national  and  organizational  level healthcare goals, with data for decision making being the key strategy.

Resources   in   Healthcare: Rising  cost  of healthcare  is  a  challenge  world  over. Delivery  of  good quality  affordable  healthcare  remains  an  enormous  challenge  to  the
health  system.  Although,  there  have  been  many  improvements  and  innovations  in  the healthcare  delivery  system,  the  effective  management  of  resources,  lack  of  funding  and dismal  scenario  of  health  insurance remains  an  unsolved  issue.  There is  a  need  to
harmonize   the   different   stakeholders   involved   in   this   process   to   address   these challenges.

Technological  Advancements  in  Healthcare: The  technology  shift  has  cast  itself over  the  field  of  healthcare,  bringing  with  it  a  digital  transformation  in  the  way  doctors
and  patients  interact.  Due  to  the  increasing  convergence  of  technology  and  healthcare, there is a huge opportunity for providers to improve the patient experience and operate
more   efficiently   due   to   augmented   association   and   information   sharing   among providers.
