Session 8 : Digital Health: Giving birth to new delivery models through Mobile, IoT, Block Chain and Artificial Intelligence

As we know digital has struggled to make a headway into Indian health sector in a big way so far. However, given the enabling building blocks it seems that we are at the cusp of a new paradigm in health sector.

Many impending questions that the session would try to answer are as follows

  • Digital intervention in health systems for efficiency
