McCann Health has won the creative mandate for Health Care At Home, the healthcare services provider. The brand will be handled by the agency's Delhi office. According to the new mandate, all the creatives of Health Care At Home to be rolled out across TV, print, outdoor, and digital will be conceptualised by McCann Health henceforth.

Commenting on the account win, Harshit Jain, senior vice-president and country manager, McCann Health India, says, "We are delighted to be entrusted with the brand in this nascent category. It has huge potential. We hope that this partnership will bring about the desired change in healthcare in India."

According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), India's home healthcare industry, which consists of home-based medical and home services worth $2 billion, is growing at 20 per cent annually. The sector, which is fast becoming an organised, technology-led industry with standards and protocols is booming, and has drawn the attention of entrepreneurs and investors alike.
