You are not new to getting honoured or being showered with
accolades for your pioneering work in the health & medical technology
sector. But still,how significant is being honoured as the World Healthcare
Innovative Entrepreneur of the year 2017?
It has indeed been a great honour to receive this prestigious award and to be conferred the title of “Proud Son of the Soil” in my homeland—Andhra Pradesh by the Health Minister & GAPIO (Global Association Of Physicians Of Indian origin). Presently, more than 1,50,000 Indian physicians are spread across more than 70 countries, with a great majority of them in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East and Europe. Hence, I am not only proud to be part of such a large extended medical fraternity, but also, as an entrepreneur, I rate this accolade as one of my most cherished recognitions. To receive such an elusive nomination by the committee of the Global association of Physicians of Indian Origin amongst such illustrious stalwarts of the diaspora of Indian medical
physicians across the globe is indeed heartening.
Global Hawk Imaging & Telemedicine (GHID) Innovative Health Services delivery has been the key pillar of your success. How does it help in impacting the lives of the common people?
The preliminary reason for such stupendous success and rapid growth of GHID, was the impact we had on common people. As a result of the innovative telemedicine platform, we had the capacity to connect every needy person to global medical consultants for rapid expert opinions regarding their case. We had a myriad of case scenarios where patients were in need of second opinions to take final decisions on life saving surgery or varying forms of conservative treatments. We have been blessed to have touched and helped save millions of lives on the GHID platform which is immensely satisfying, and continues to motivate us to deliver consistent quality services.
