The National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) through its Center of Excellence-Internet of Things (CoE-IoT) has announced a strategic partnership with GE Healthcare.
This strategic partnership will help GE Healthcare tap the flourishing healthtech start-up ecosystem in the country to co-create solutions for real-world healthcare challenges in the areas of digital applications for early detection, productivity solutions, and remote and connected care among others.
It will also help the two partners work with policymakers in the government/administration to shape policies around digital health.
Speaking on the occasion, Debjani Ghosh, President, NASSCOM said, “The future of healthcare is shaping up in front of our eyes mainly through digital technologies, such as the Internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), VR/AR, 3D-printing, robotics or nanotechnology. In medicine and healthcare, digital technology can help transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones, equalize the relationship between medical professionals and patients, provide cheaper, faster and more effective solutions for diseases.”
Sharing his thoughts, Dileep Mangsuli, Chief Technology Officer, GE Healthcare South Asia said, “We are committed to drive digital adoption in India but we know that we can’t do it alone. We need an ecosystem of partners with whom we can work to supplement the work already underway at our research centers. This partnership with NASSCOM CoE-IoT will help us bring to market solutions that improve people’s lives.”
