His plan is to change the distributed markets and bring together all multiple existing players of the market under one single layer. This is to provide insurance, healthcare and subscriptions all under one package. Mr. Garg and Mr. Kochhar further engaged in an interesting conversation about hospital day care chains in India. The functions, declining levels, manpower, capital investment etc. Mr. Kochhar also throws light upon the handling of contracts and process of infrastructure for such clinics. In his opinion, the problem of Indian medical chains is twofold- the quality of care and the timeliness of care.
