“Global Tourism Marketplace has helped thousands of patients to connect them to different healthcare providers,” says Adil Saghir, The CEO of MedTravo

A vision of a healthcare entrepreneur that can change the future of healthcare in India: An exclusive talk with Adil Saghir, The CEO of MedTravo

After a global community was impacted by a severe pandemic, the importance of healthcare in the technology field is felt more than ever before. In recent years, healthcare has become a part of the ecosystem in India. While healthcare itself is a noble profession and majorly contributes to humanity, successful healthcare entrepreneurs are making it more valuable to the national economies around the world. Medicircle presents TOP CEO of healthcare series where we are featuring influential role models to share their views about the healthcare industry. 

Adil Saghir is the Chief Executive Officer of MedTravo Delhi. He is also a mentor of Atal Innovation Mission (AIM). He has experience of almost 8 years with MedTravo.

The major challenges of the healthcare system 

Adil says, “Affordability is the biggest challenge on the primary, secondary and tertiary levels. In regards to the Indian population, there is a long way to go. We need more entrepreneurs in healthcare as affordability cannot be changed single-handed by the government. The entrepreneurs have to make sure that the product they launch for health care must be available locally to the masses and affordable as well. The entrepreneurs must provide best of their services to the rural areas as well so that it is easily accessible. India needs to set up and establish private healthcare centers not only in the big cities but also in the semi-urban and rural areas. The youth of the nation can play a significant role here.”

The journey of the ambitious entrepreneur in the healthcare industry

Adil explains his journey by saying, “My journey began in 2013 for the healthcare industry. I and my team were completely focused to solve all the issues of healthcare in a global scenario from medical tourism through health technology. We have helped patients in Africa and built an online Global Tourism Marketplace that has helped thousands of patients to connect them to different healthcare providers not only in India but other different destinations across the globe. With a lot of struggles and success, the journey has been good.”

Future of healthcare due to COVID19

Adil explains,” Post-COVID has brought a lot of changes. Technology will play a greater role and impact many people’s lives." He further mentions, “Patients in the rural and semi-urban area want access to super specialists and surgeons. 95% of the patients have to travel to the bigger cities for major surgery or treatment. So telemedicine has become a very integral part of the healthcare ecosystem and the demand for telemedicine will grow.

The people in the semi-urban and rural areas have gained access to this online tool of telemedicine. Every company must make sure that the technology is efficient, easy to use, affordable, and reach out to many consumers in rural areas. This is how real change can happen. COVID has given us opportunities to solve many health problems” 

Flexible and opinion free atmosphere for healthcare entrepreneurs

Adil states,” India must spend a good amount percentage in the healthcare system and boost its healthcare spendings. Entrepreneurs must work very closely with the government to launch a product and service in their city. A policy and framework should be created so that there is the flexibility to work with the government. This can only happen when the atmosphere is opinion-free and flexible. Not to forget, that India is performed well during the COVID as compared to other nations.”
