A year of tech-enabled care and compassion: Sangita Reddy, Apollo Hospitals

2024 will be about tech-enabled care and compassion. We stand at the threshold of a transformative era in healthcare as we navigate the challenges and opportunities 2024 presents. The global landscape is witnessing a paradigm shift in health equity, recognising it not merely as a local concern but a shared global challenge.

The journey from infectious diseases to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) underscores the need for a united front against health disparities. Our approach is evolving, with the locus of care moving from hospitals to a more diversified ecosystem of clinics, homes and telehealth. This brings healthcare closer to communities, making it more accessible and patient-centric.

Also, the decreasing costs of care, driven by advancements in technology and local manufacturing, are making quality healthcare more affordable and inclusive.

In this transformative journey, technology, especially Artificial Intelligence, emerges as a ubiquitous force. Leveraging AI to enable quality access at scale, ensuring that clinical talent is directed where it is needed the most will become critical.

The synergy of AI and technology accelerates the reach, quality and effectiveness of healthcare, paving the way for a future where health is truly a universal right.

As we chart the course for 2024, we will need to not just addressing immediate health concerns but work on building a resilient and equitable healthcare system focussed on care for generations to come, always, ensuring a sound foundation of empathy and humanity.
