Session on: Lifestyle Diseases

Lifestyle Diseases are the ones which are driven by sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, drug abuse, excessive intake of alcohol and smoking. They account for a voluminous number of non-communicable diseases that have near life- threatening effects. They mostly include diseases with complex aetiology, with multiple risk factors, having long latency period and may lead to functional impairment or disability. Increased incidence of urbanization and globalization along with the changes in dietary habits and preferences has led to the occurrence of many lifestyle diseases. Even the kids prefer sticking to the phones rather than going for outdoor games which leads to the inculcation of poor lifestyle right from the childhood. Occupation also plays an important role in the health status of an individual where physical activity accounts for a fit and healthy body and the jobs with long hours of work on computers leads to lethargic, unhealthy body and mind. These diseases include hypertension, obesitydiabetescardiovascular diseases (CVDs), bone disorders, hormonal disorders, neurological disorders, occupational diseases, respiratory disordersdepression and cancer. So, there is an immediate need of spreading the awareness regarding this underestimated aspect at the global level.

The Scope of the Healthcare:

The global healthcare market is expected to grow to $11801 billion in 2021 at an attractive compound annual growth rate (CAGR). . The healthcare industry is one of the largest and fast growing industries in the world, and it has a direct effect on the quality of life of patients. The term healthcare refers to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease or illness. Healthcare is one of the highest growth industries in the entire world. According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics, more than 14.3 million people are employed in the healthcare industry, and it's projected that 3.2 million new healthcare related jobs will be created over the next 8 years.

Business Value of Lifestyle and Related Health Sector:

The World Health Organization estimates there are 9.2 million physicians, 19.4 million nurses and midwives, 1.9 million dentists and other dentistry personnel, 2.6 million pharmacists and other pharmaceutical personnel, and over 1.3 million community health workers worldwide, making the health care industry one of the largest segments of the workforce. Health care facilities are largely owned and operated by private sector businesses. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United States spent $9,403 on health care per capita, and 17.1% on health care as percentage of its GDP in 2014. Healthcare coverage is provided through a combination of private health insurance and public health coverage (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid). The United States does not have a universal healthcare program, unlike other advanced industrialized countries.

Health care in the United States is provided by many distinct organizations. In 2013, 64% of health spending was paid for by the government, and funded via programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program, and the Veterans Health Administration.

The global health Care market is estimated to be worth some $10tn and is growing at a faster rate than GDP in many countries. The production and provision of health related goods and services, employment in the health work force, new technologies and capital invested in hospitals, clinics and other health infrastructure affect the prospects for stable economic growth and employment in economics  around the World and this in turn lead to improvements in population health.

This lower than what was observed in 2016 (4.8 percent) and 2015 (5.8 percent). After a period of relatively fast growth in 2014 and 2015 during the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, 2017 was characterized by slower growth that continued from 2016. In fact, growth in 2017 was similar to the 3.7 percent average annual rate of the 5-year period ending in 2013.

Forecast for next 5 years in Lifestyle and Healthcare:

The present healthcare system is essentially a sick care system, built in the middle of the last century. Although there’s been tremendous progress on medical diagnosis and treatments, care delivery hasn’t structurally changed much. It’s still largely bricks and mortar where people who are sick or acutely ill come to be seen and treated by medically trained people. It was never designed to deal with the huge growth of chronic disease which now represents well over 80 per cent of all healthcare spend.

At the moment, if someone doesn’t feel well, they may see their GP, get an appointment with a hospital specialist, have tests or scans, have those results looked at, and then receive the necessary treatment. Some future predictions in world regarding health care - Artificial Intelligence (AI) for healthcare IT Application will cross $1.7 billion by 2019, Asia becomes the New Local Innovation Hub for Global Drug and Device OEMs, Digital health tech catering to out of hospital will grow by 30% and cross $25 billion.
