Could you please talk about your journey in the Healthcare industry?
My journey dates back to the days when I joined a global technology consulting company Thought works straight out of college. It gave me a vast exposure and laid down a strong foundation in my career. I grew up in a small city in north India where I witnessed the profound effects that healthcare, agriculture and education can have on a
community. After a few years, when there was an opportunity to use technology to make an impact in healthcare in order to help people live happier and healthier lives, I knew I had to do it and there has been no looking back since then.

Our goal is to provide patients with a doctor who really understands and keeps up with their health helping them live a longer &happier life

Could you talk about the learnings and experience that you had acquired from National Institute of Technology and how do you apply them in your current role?
In addition to the core technical skills gained from an engineering college, National Institute of Technology Calicut prepared me to think with utmost composure in any tough situation in life. The tenure there also strengthened my belief that you can solve any complex problems with the right approach and hard work.
