Early disease diagnosis and awareness key to quality healthcare, stresses Sonali Bendre at CAHOCON 2019



Mumbai, 13th April, 2019: Detection of diseases like cancer at an early stage and creating mass awareness on a community level is key to attaining better healthcare outcomes, stated noted actress and cancer survivor “Sonali Bendre“ on the first Day of CAHOCON 2019, the 5th international conference of the Consortium of Accredited Healthcare Organizations (CAHO) held on April 13-14 at Sahara Star Hotel, Mumbai. Themed around “Healthcare Quality Should Impact Outcome”, the conference shed insights on the continuing engagement of healthcare industry in traversing innovative pathways to attain quality healthcare outcomes.
“It is important to note signals which the body sends at periodic intervals and get the right diagnosis done. Early detection can be key to avoiding painful invasive treatment. Open-ended discussions on discussions like cancer have the potential to foster awareness on a wider level. Healthcare institutions like hospitals should also play an important role in initiating dialogue on diseases and ensure community participation to improve healthcare outcomes,” stated Sonali Bendre
“Quality healthcare forms the foundation of a healthy society and a growing economy. We need to ensure that there is no compromise with healthcare standards and people from all strata of society have access to the best healthcare systems. Through an accredited healthcare ecosystem, we intend to standardize healthcare procedures and train healthcare professionals in practices and processes to provide state-of-the –art healthcare to the citizens of the country.,” stated Dr Rajendra Patankar, COO, Nanavati Super Specialty Hospital.
 “Accreditation is very good and all hospitals should try to go for it. However, in our country, it is all the processes are not implemented effectively and outcome measurements are not done most of the times. Unfortunately, as of now, accreditation is largely undertaken as a public relations exercise and a marketing tool rather than improving healthcare quality which should reach the patient. Implementation should be more vigorous,” stated Dr. PM Bhujang, President, Association of Hospitals.
“CAHOCON is a great platform to make hospitals process-oriented and increase the quotient of patient safety. Hospital’ care over the last few years has become very complex and error prone. In such a scenario, it is imperative that hospitals understand this changing scenario and the need for understanding to work as a team with the requisite processes,” stated Dr. Vijay Agarwal, President, CAHOCON  
“Healthcare should be a bottomline equalizer and people should be able to afford and access quality healthcare,” stated noted journalist Arnab Goswami who was one of the speakers at the conference    

CAHO, an association of all accredited hospitals and laboratories has embarked on a mission of quality promotion across the country. Towards its journey in improving quality and safety of healthcare services, CAHO organises an annual event CAHOCON in collaboration with all stakeholders. 
The theme of CAHOCON 2019 "Healthcare Quality Should Impact Outcome" will ensure the ongoing engagement of healthcare industry towards establishing innovative pathways in achieving stronger foothold in the Quality journey.
CAHOCON 2019 aims to share the best practices developed and implemented by healthcare organizations nationally & internationally. The multi-faceted panel of eminent National and International speakers deliberated on the theme's relevance in today's healthcare industry during the conference.
Pre Conference Workshops and Master classes were held on 12th April, 2019 in their partnering Mumbai hospitals. The collaboration of participating hospitals facilitated the implementation of various projects which were showcased.

Endemol Shine Group, DoveTail Media and acclaimed film director Shekhar Kapur join forces to bring best-selling novels The Ibis Trilogy to worldwide market



·         Award- winning film director Shekhar Kapur (‘Elizabeth’, ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’, ‘Bandit Queen’) to direct new drama based on the bestselling novels by Amitav Ghosh

·         The epic historical saga will be produced by Artists Studio, part of Endemol Shine Group, in partnership with Endemol Shine India and new TV packaging company DoveTale Media

·         The deal was announced at Series Mania in Lille by Lars Blomgren, Endemol Shine Group’s Head of Scripted at EMEA

Global content creator, producer and distributor Endemol Shine Group today announces the development of a major high-end production for the international market.

Shekhar Kapur, the award-winning film director behind ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’ as well as Bollywood smash hits ‘Mr. India’, ‘Masoom’ and ‘Bandit Queen’ has signed a deal with Endemol Shine Group to bring to life the trilogy of best-selling novels by acclaimed author Amitav Ghosh.

Ghosh’s masterpiece, which begins with ‘Sea of Poppies’, continues with ‘River of Smoke’ and concludes with ‘Flood of Fire’, has already achieved classic status and is seen as a landmark of twenty-first century literature.

The agreement also brings together Endemol Shine Group companies, Artists Studio (‘The Fall’) and Endemol Shine India (‘Test Case’) who will produce the drama in partnership with TV packaging consultancy service DoveTale Media who initially acquired the rights to the books.

Justin Pollard, whose credits include the blockbuster ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise as well as hit television series ‘Vikings’ and ‘The Tudors’, is on board as Historical Consultant and Story Editor. Set in mid-nineteenth century Asia, the series will interweave the lives of vividly drawn characters against the backdrop of the opium wars between Britain, India and China.  The team is in the process of lining up a lead writer.

Abhishek Rege CEO, Endemol shine India said “We at Endemol Shine India have been focused developing quality content not just the Indian market but something that would elicit curiosity from a global audience. This is the first step in that direction. The Ibis Trilogy project will be an amalgamation of the best global creative and production talent, including Endemol Shine India, Artists Studio, Dove Tale Media, Amitav Gosh, Lars Blomgren and Shekhar Kapur!"

Shekhar Kapur adds; “I have always been fascinated that the drug trade was the engine for the Industrial Revolution. Amitav Gosh's books brilliantly bring out the vast epic and emotional tale of opium, from its beginnings in India where it is grown and onto China where it is pushed by drug lords. The story also follows the journeys of indentured labour from India to colonies around the world and tells the intriguing tales of people from India, America and China at a time when modern history was being formed. I’m very much looking forward to collaborating with Endemol Shine in this gripping series that could run into many seasons.”

Lars Blomgren, Head of Scripted for EMEA at Endemol Shine Group says; “Our ambition is to create a major high-end franchise for the international market, matching the scale and epic sweep of the Ibis novels. This deal represents our Group collaborating at its best, creating an exotic, never before seen tale with wide audience appeal. Shekhar Kapur completes the exclusive package and we’re expecting great interest in bringing this to the global audience.”

Lars Blomgren was appointed Head of Scripted EMEA in 2018 and is charged with enhancing Endemol Shine Group’s premium offering through increased collaboration, shared investment and opportunities across the Group.

Last year Endemol Shine Group’s unparalleled network of award-winning scripted producers and companies across markets in Europe, Middle East and Asia were responsible for 50 non-English language productions.
