Some of these are preventable conditions, but lack of access to care results in high disease burden. The demand for technologies such as AI and cloud computing that empower healthcare personnel is acute.
But, the lack of right infrastructure prevents efficient implementation. Microsoft India’s unique approach of building an ecosystem of local partners to help them build and scale solutions for the country on the one hand and partnering with large providers and government authorities to implement these solutions on the other, with a focus on the impact on patient health, is commendable.”
