Bangalore: Mukesh Hariawala, an Indian American Cardiac Surgeon has been honoured with the prestigious Indian Healthcare Visionary of the Decade award. A Harvard trained and internationally acclaimed Surgeon and Healthcare Economist, Hariawala was acknowledged at a recent ceremony of the 4th Annual Business Leadership Conclave at Hotel Leela in Mumbai, reports Jagran Josh.

In his Keynote speech, Hariawala discussed about a medical tourism opportunity for India, worth 100 billion dollar, which is a part of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) by President Obama.

Hariwala appreciated India for its highly skilled doctors and nurses and the healthcare infrastructure the country posses. According to him, marketing of services and lobbying with insurance companies in the US is really important to maintain constant flow of patients.

Apart from benefitting the healthcare industry, the medical tourism plan will also help many other sectors such as hospitality, travel, lodging, food, tourism, banking, shopping etc, in terms of revenue.
