At the Indo UK Technology Summit inaugurated by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi and Prime Minister of UK Theresa May, the Indo UK Institute of Health (IUIH) Medicities Programme announced Johnson & Johnson Private Limited as its technology partner in orthopaedics. Dr Liam Fox Secretary of State for Trade and Industry chaired the round table where the collaboration was announced.

As part of this understanding, Johnson & Johnson Medical division of Johnson & Johnson Private Limited, India’s largest medical devices company, will be providing advanced medical technology and education in the field of orthopaedics to the 11 IUIH medicities being established in India by IUIH Institute for better patient care and clinical outcomes.

The IUIH programme is one of the world's largest health care initiatives currently underway, aimed at transforming the provision of quality healthcare and medical education services across India. The IUIH's Medicities programme aims to establish 11 hospitals with medical colleges, with a total bed capacity of 11,000 and a throughput of between 1,100 and 1,650 medical students per year.

Ajay Rajan Gupta, managing director and Group CEO, IUIH said, “The partnership with medical division of Johnson & Johnson India, is set to redefine the existing paradigms in healthcare industry. It will add unparalleled value to IUIH at multiple levels, be it for patients, employees or current/future valuation. The understanding demonstrates our strategic-intent to create a globally admired, affordable, available and accountable Indo UK Institute of Health Medicities Programme. With use of technology resources, the understanding with Johnson & Johnson will enhance IUIH’s value in years to come.”

“As a broadly based healthcare company, we are privileged to be able to serve patients and healthcare professionals in India, by working together with the Indo UK Institutes of Health towards our common goal of improving access to quality healthcare,” said Sushobhan Dasgupta, managing director of Johnson & Johnson Medical India.

Johnson & Johnson Medical India will work closely with IUIH to deliver clinical education and skill – upgradation programs for healthcare professionals in these medicities. India has about 800,000 physicians with only 0.6 physicians per 1,000 population. Moreover, the demand for well-trained physicians in India far outstrips the current supply especially as the country’s health challenges move from acute, communicable diseases to lifestyle related diseases. “Through this collaboration, Johnson & Johnson Medical India hopes to fill a part of this critical gap and bring latest training techniques and surgical education to their doorstep,” added Sushobhan Dasgupta.

Johnson & Johnson Medical India has been at the forefront of training healthcare professionals on advance healthcare technologies including Minimal Invasive Surgery, Microsurgery, Ethiskills to Joint Replacement, Spine Surgery, Cardiovascular, Infection Prevention and Surgical Stapling procedure in India. In the last 23 years, the company has trained more than 200,000 health care practitioners trained across various specialties in India.
