Participating during a panel discussion on ‘Next Gen Realities: IoT, Machine Learning, Robotics & Artificial Intelligence, Cloud and Data Centre’ at Healthcare Transformation Summit organized by Elets Technomedia on 30-31 October, 2020, Sikka said: “AI helps in humans on two dimensions speed and accuracy. In Medanta we have a smart OPD consultation platform AI-enabled, which enables the doctors to prescribe smoothly. Medanta runs India’s large TB-free campaign in remote areas of Haryana where we use AI-based algorithm machine x-rays with 98 percent success rates”.
“As for blockchain in healthcare, it is useful in the document registry. It will be helpful in National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) where the government wants information to be shared between various stakeholders right from the primary healthcare centres to diagnostic labs and tertiary healthcare centres. In NDHM information needs to travel from one source to another where blockchain can help as it’s nothing but a distributor ledger where one is able to see what kind of procedures and medication carried out for a particular patient. Blockchain technology is fully secured the built-in ledger is remarkable so this is a very fair relevant technology available across the value chain”.
Dr. Rajiv Sikka, CIO, @medanta
The blockchain has done well globally but yet to make its mark in India. The security is high. It is a very fair and relevant technology. The healthcare documents can be connected through block chain.#EletsHTS #EletsHealth pic.twitter.com/zMbYB937dO
