Using technology to make healthcare accessible to all was the message at the valedictory function of a conference on health.
Making her debut as Governor at a public event, Tamilisai Soundararajan, who is a medical professional, batted for the Central government’s Ayushman Bharat scheme. “Healthcare expense is something that can be planned as well. If people go for insurance, medical emergencies can be taken care of,” said the Governor.
“Healthcare is an area that has the greatest potential to benefit from technology. It can transform healthcare. We have artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D-printing, robotics and nanotechnology that have changed the face of modern medicine. It is essential for Indian doctors to familiarise themselves with the latest developments to be able to control technology and not the other way around,” said Ms. Soundararajan who recounted her days as a student and a doctor in Thanjavur.
“Let’s make the best use of technology to work for patient safety as well as to fight the rising problem of non-communicable diseases, a big challenge to our country and the world,” she said.
Earlier, Health Minister Eatala Rajender said healthcare should aim to help the poorest of poor. “I want to see a day where I don’t have to call up a hospital s on behalf of patients for discount. Only when healthcare is accessible to all, it will go a great way in transforming the State,” said Mr. Rajender.
“Telangana has made great strides in making healthcare affordable. Our diagnostic tests and health profiling will go a long way in creating a healthy State. Every expense in a family is expected except healthcare,” said the Minister.
