The course content was "Good, Relevant and Appropriate". However some editing needs to be done. The first two videos about care in government hospitals needs to be supplemented by good side of it. Second: Perhaps the government is the biggest investor in terms of Money, Materials and Man power besides have best brains, then mention the strategic weakness!!! For week 1, 2, 3, 4 there was ample time to complete assignments while the last week time was ultra short, this needs attention. Then about the instructor, Prof. Chirantan Chatterjee, sure he is knowledgeable but quite very fast in his lecture delivery. For international students perhaps some slow, pause and toning is needed. Last but not the least many complements to the provider for an excellent experience.

CONTENT: Very well thought-out and very well-designed! Case studies and video snippets are worth appreciating! INSTRUCTOR: Respected instructors have taken all the pain to video record these extremely enriching interviews, thanks for the same! Videos of the professor are also very relevant, crisp and intellectually stimulating! PROVIDER: The providers have taken a commendable job in terms of the execution. I highly recommend this course. Anyone, who takes this course seriously, and takes the pain of not only going through the primary syllabus but suggested additional study material as well, will be immensely benefited. Many thanks!

This was a great class for those looking to gain more insight into the Indian Health Care Sector. While I have a scientific and, to a much lesser extent, a policy background, this class was very helpful in introducing a more business/strategy viewpoint, and how this applies to the Indian Health Care sector. For those like me, who have never really dived into such business/strategy elements, this class did a great job providing the necessary overview to start thinking critically and applying it to a particular sector. The class is only five weeks long, so I would not expect a high-level graduate course on the material. However, with its short time frame, I thought it was truly excellent; I leave this class far more knowledgeable than when I started, and able to move on to more advanced discourses on the subject more easily.

The only problem with this course is the difficulty level assigned to it as ADVANCED.The course in no way profoundly talks about any of the topic talked about.It just gives the introduction to different components of Healthcare of India with providing insightful additional readings and thought leaders interviews,which to some extent gives way to different perspectives of the topics covered.Case Studies are really good.The monthly webinar by Professor was helpful and full of answers.Overall this course is a nice experience to delve into the Indian Healthcare and beautiful views and teachings of Professor Chatterjee.

The course was below my expectations. As someone who has worked in the healthcare service provider arena for more than three decades, It had little to offer as new or by way of stimulating as to why, how, and where to begin to set the things right which obviously are far from acceptable.It would have been much preferred if the course was conducted by someone who has first hand experience of healthcare professions, and who knows how this sector is not just another business.Healthcare has several dimensions and is a complex interplay of determinants with myriad players just like our body organs and systems. India is lagging in providing even basic health services to its masses, we have to begin with dealing with this situation as to how first of all we can reach the needy and what we can offer them that is within their means. We have to emphasize preventive medicine so that we can prevent their clinic and hospital visits. The course ... The course was below my expectations.

We have to emphasize preventive medicine so that we can prevent their clinic and hospital visits. The course doesn't talk at all about the real issues.Same is the case with simple hygiene, health awareness, lifestyle and behavior, substance abuse, lack of providers, pharma industry, and scores of others. There is no mention of medical education which is so vital to healthcare delivery, no reference to research and innovative techniques in healthcare delivery. To add to the woes of the learners, the questions were so poorly designed and sometimes gave an impression that one has to read the mind of the question-setter, rather than go through the course content. To sum up, a lot needs to rectified for such courses to be of any use to the learners expecting some value addition and up gradation of their existing knowledge. I hope the comments are construed in the right perspective.

A great course with right balance of theory and practicality. Professor Chatterjee has engaging briefing style. A comprehensive hard work has been done in building right-sized content for this type of course. Though course is focused on Indian markets but at times it gave insightful information about global markets as well. I greatly increased by knowledge by doing this course. Congratulations to the team!

I am a pre-medicine student completing her second year in the U.S. and I have always been passionate about learning how the healthcare system functions around the world so, I figured why not start from where my parents' motherland? Taking this course has completely changed my perspective on management and health. It really brings to light why changes cannot happen over night and does so in an informative way. I would recommend this course for anyone who wants an insightful look into India and the healthcare system that encompasses the nation. Cannot wait for other courses offered by IIMB!

As a healthcare provider, I gained a lot from the course. There a a hundred different kinds of healthcare offerings in the market. Gaining insight into what works and what doesen't and getting a strategic perspective on the sector, is extremely relevant if we invest in this sector. The instructor was excellent and the various expert interviews and perspectives were very helpful.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. The contents were precise and the instructor was nothing sort of great in explaining those. Though I felt the Week 4 case study fairly inadequate, it felt like an AD. I had no experience in Healthcare sector other than being a patient. This helped me gain some insight on the Industry and Firms.

The most comprehensive and updated course on Indian Healthcare that addresses business models of established players to new age disruptive start-ups. The thought leader series was exceptionally great at addressing challenges and potential solutions aimed at reforming the Indian healthcare ecosystem. Prof. Chatterjee has laid out the course structure extremely rationally and explained the same with utmost clarity.

I thank Prof.Chatterjee and IIM Bangalore for taking the initiative and putting this course on Edex. There are aspects of this course which were very refreshing for me to learn. I think there is scope for improvement. At different points in the course we realized that policy is a big player in health sector in India, and yet we did not have anyone from the Indian government giving us a perspective from their side. I think Indian public health systems have some great case studies for the world - including eradication of Polio. There are state healthcare systems in Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu which have successfully implemented massive open source systems to track primary health centers, adopted electronic health records, and track stocks of essential medicines remotely. I think there is room to fill the gap from Indian government side to provide the complete perspective and also guidance on key issues like indian patent regime and future...
