The acute shortage of healthcare services in India - be it doctors, nurses or hospital beds - creates a unique set of challenges - two in particular.
First, this situation gives rise to the need for technologies that "deskill" healthcare delivery - those that standardize and simplify activities, so that they can be performed by "non-experts". This frees up the time of doctors and specialized nursing staff to focus on value-added, patient-centric activities.
Second, the shortage of hospital infrastructure creates the need for healthcare delivery that can extend to the community and home - reducing burden on hospitals and patients alike.
We will soon present two case studies that illustrate how solutions were developed in response to these challenges.
