Integration of the east with the west is the norm today. For this to happen practices and innovation in this area needs to be constantly challenged. A lot of these practices are already being experimented and talks and conferences are being held all over the globe for a one stop solution for all medical disorders that will use the best practices of the modern and the different traditional systems. This is done so as to ensure a patient suffers less out of any medical treatment and he/she gets cured with minimum side-effects. Also conferences are also dealing with the current change in scenario of diseases that are afflicted all over. It is notable that modern times are experiencing a shift from communicable diseases to non-communicable diseases. And this shift has to be in a multi-faceted manner with utmost importance given to the care given to patients. Cost-effectiveness should also be ensured while keeping the care of the patients in mind. This helps in medical care reaching out to all sectors of society.
