Use Case sponsors Apollo Hospitals, HealthCare Global Enterprises, Max Healthcare, Hinduja Hospital, Cygnus Hospital, Aditya Birla Health Insurance, and others participated in panel discussions at the launch event.
The previous editions of this program were highly appreciated and received participation from the healthcare industry. However, the newly announced third series of HIC has piqued the interest of insurance and technology companies as well.
Vice President of Imaging System Software at Wipro GE Healthcare India said, “Healthcare is going through a rapid transformation and providing comprehensive patient care connecting hospital systems, laboratory diagnostics, physicians, etc. is the need of the hour. To provide timely diagnostics and treatment, connecting these functions remotely is crucial.”
He further added that using specialized technologies like artificial intelligence, deep learning, safe data management, telemedicine, telemonitoring, and digital solutions can deliver an all-around patient experience.
Over the last few years, NASSCOM has taken many initiatives to promote research and deployment of artificial intelligence technologies in India that have helped not only students but also numerous tech startups to scale their businesses.
HIC will accelerate broad-based deployment participation, boosting the influence of digital technology in the healthcare sector toward the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s (MeitY) aim of a $1 trillion digital economy.
