New Delhi: Experts will gather here at a FICCI meet on sustainable quality healthcare to discuss challenges the private healthcare sector faces in providing affordable services.

The two-day FICCI HEAL 2013 starts on September 2.

A FICCI release said the conference would discuss hospital planning, infrastructure, operations, innovation in technology and practice and cost of delivery of services.

Integrating and mainstreaming AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) system of medicine will also be discussed.

The panellists will share insights on the myth that adherence to quality standards will raise the cost.
