The challenges of accessibility and affordability that most people face can be addressed by policy-backed Public Private Partnership (PPP) models. The PPP model can help ensure optimal utilization of the existing medical infrastructure at an affordable cost to the end user.
It will bring in resources that the government needs to make healthcare available, and create a sustainable long-term model. Our success would not have been possible without the support of our real life heroes - doctors and nurses of the Indian healthcare system - so today we share this honor with them.” Adding further on the key role innovations in technology will play in the coming years to help India realise its goal of achieving Universal Healthcare, Gaurav Parchani, CTO & Co-founder of Dozee, said: “The prestigious FICCI Healthcare Excellence Awards for Digital Innovation is a testament to our efforts towards revolutionizing the healthcare ecosystem with technology.
AI in healthcare is very commonplace in diagnosis. But we can move towards preventive medicine, where the industry can build algorithms and networks to identify early health deterioration identifiers. By doing so, I believe we have the potential to elevate and disrupt the preventive healthcare ecosystem in the country.” Entering its 14th year, the FICCI Healthcare Excellence Awards carry forward its tradition of honouring individuals and organisations who have made significant contributions to society by setting the standards of excellence and innovation in the healthcare field.
