Teleradiology Solutions has always been at the forefront in innovatively using information technology to strengthen the healthcare sector of the country, contributing to the vision of the Government’s National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) and Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). The new centre at AMTZ will not only focus on reporting of radiologic images from all states of our country but will also set an example that will enable the national healthcare sector to adopt current-generation technologies.
While delivering the welcome address on the sidelines of the inauguration, Dr. Arjun Kalyanpur, CEO & Chief Radiologist, Teleradiology Solutions said, “70% of Indian population are from villages, and consequently, the majority is deprived of radiologist access since most of them reside in metros and larger cities. We are happy to open our new centre here at AMTZ to address this issue and deliver best-in-class radiology diagnostics to remote areas so that public sector and government hospitals can also enjoy the benefits of teleradiology, image storage and sharing and comprehensive reporting solutions. The hub will also generate employment opportunities for young Radiologists, Medical imaging technologists, Software Engineers, and other supporting staff.”
Dr. Jitendra Sharma, MD & CEO, AMTZ said, “We are striving to downsize the imports of medical devices in India and manufacture supplying medical equipment indigenously in the zone. AMTZ is known as the world’s largest medical devices manufacturing park and we are happy to collaborate with TRS to boost the production of local MedTech products such as CT Scanner, and MRIs with fully integrated reporting, storage and analytical services in the locations where radiologists are unavailable.”
