In the evening of 14th March 2000,I was doing some research on the impact of weather on health outcomes. I did find some credible information from sites in the UK, Germany and Japan. But I found a total lack of any information on health outcomes from sites in India.

Driven by this and my own desire to share health insights, I started a blog on Blog Spot called Public Health India Blog. The idea was to share best practices on how we can improve care standards in India by focusing on public health. My belief is that we would have to focus on preventive health in order to improve care outcomes in the country.

In the last 7 years, Healthcare India has evolved covering key areas like Healthcare Delivery, Public Health, Healthcare Startups, Wellness, Healthcare Technology and Healthcare Insurance. We have also had the opportunity to speak to business leaders in healthcare, top doctors, government bodies, regulators, startups and technologists.

Since then we also moved from Blog Spot to a self hosted site using a Word Press custom template.

Yesterday we received news that Healthcare India has been recognized as one of the top 100 healthcare blogs in the world.




The recognition was based on

  • Social media buzz
  • Alexa Ranking

I look forward to many more years of working with the stakeholders in healthcare to improve care outcomes and create the best in class healthcare system in India. Thank you all for your support and patronage and looking forward to an amazing 2017.
