Doing More with Less – Lessons from a Doctor

Dr Devi Prasad Shetty is the founder of Narayana Hrudayalaya, a hospital specialising in cardiac and cancer care in Bangalore. Established in 2001, the hospital has since grown to become the first centre for artificial heart transplant in Asia. Along with the government of Karnataka, Dr Shetty was also instrumental in designing a cheap, yet comprehensive insurance scheme for the poor farmers of the state. Professors Lawton Robert Burns and Stephen Sammut from the Wharton School, talk to Dr Shetty about his initiatives and how he utilises his resources to have maximum impact.
