At HBI 2020 we interviewed Chinta Bhagat, a managing partner at private equity house L Catterton, the world’s biggest private equity investor in consumer products and retail, about the destruction of the general hospital and the new digital models that will replace it. “If you don’t have digital embedded in everything you do in such a way as to give the customer a choice of how to interact with you, your business will eventually be destroyed,” he says. Bhagat should know, he led McKinsey’s healthcare practice in Asia for many years and at Khazanah Nasional was intimately involved in the creation of Pan-Asian hospital chain IHH. He is now scouting the world for digital healthcare investment opportunities.
