These 5 Indian Healthcare Startups Are Empowering Doctors With Cutting Edge Innovation
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed major cracks in the healthcare industry in the world from unprepared hospital systems to shortages of nurses and treatment variances.
But if there is a silver lining to COVID-19 for the healthcare sector, and business development leaders in the industry, it is that people have embraced digital medicine through remote patient care i.e. telemedicine and remote clinical trials like never before.
Prior to the pandemic, many people were slow to embrace telehealth for a wide number of reasons. Like they were skeptical of a doctor’s ability to diagnose remotely, or they didn’t like that it often involved an appointment with a physician who was not their designated primary care physician, etc.
