Theme - 2020
"Healthcare on Tech Highways"
MED World and Machines; For a more Human AI

Probably this time next year, little machines called drones would be dropping medicines off at homes across India. Gene editing; precision medicine; virtual reality; and tele-health - the other big game-changers - would also be closer home. The trouble is things may be moving way too fast for us in the healthcare business. Being fence sitter- waiting for things to play out - may not work under the circumstance. We need to jump into the fast car now; know the wheel, the pedals and the navigator; and chart our course on the tech highways

Med-E-Talks ’20: To help us on that road!

Dr Dileep Raman

In order to succeed, any innovation or bright idea has first to home in on a people. For that reason, McDonald's had to spice up its burgers before making its ways into India. Just so, when it was their turn to come from the US, Dr Dileep Raman and Dr Dhurv Joshi, knew India would most certainly need a plan B. Cloudphysician Healthcare is a group of highly trained ICU specialists reaching out through the Internet to assist doctors at work in their resource-constrained ICUs in far-flung locations in our country...

Mr. Hemant Radhakrishnan

Hemant Radhakrishnan, the Director of Anvita India, has a take on why some people think technology is vagrant and disruptive. He believes it is a storyline that runs deep with people who are mostly late arrivers to the scene.The landscape changes rapidly once a relevant piece of technology is introduced to an industry. He points to Amazon as an example of how it transformed the retail businesses - albeit, for the good. The sufferers in the game, however, are those people who either decide...

Mr. Shali Ittaman

We probably underestimate the scale of violence against doctors practicing in India. The Indian Medical Association says 75 per cent of doctors have been attacked at work.Last year, several government doctors across the country struck work demanding tighter security after a colleague was battered in a hospital’s emergency ward in Kolkata. His attackers were related to a patient who had died on his watch.Of course, the protests got nowhere! Nothing was done for their security, and the doctors returned...
