Double-digit growth and a fragmented healthcare system in India have spurred consultancies and data firms, although experts say pricing for services varies widely.

Boston Consulting Group told the Business Standard its services have been growing at a 50% clip the last two years—vs. the 15% annual growth for healthcare overall—and that it wants to seize more business organically. Strategic Decision Group says the consulting/strategy sector is growing strongest.

IMS Health is foraying into that area as it sees an opportunity to connect the dots among insurers and hospitals with credible claims data. It has its eye on acquisition opportunities. Headcount at its South Asia unit has grown nine-fold since 2009, reports the Economic Times.
