up-to-date with latest technology and products.
A major highlight of the event will be the presence of equity investors and venture capitalists, who will be assessing the participating start-ups for funding opportunities in healthcare technology space. Start-ups will also get to explore opportunities for incubation and engaging with hospitals for beta testing of products, the release said.
CAHO President Dr Vijay Agarwal said this conference was the definitive event for health and technology innovation, investment and best practices. It showcases the latest technology based solutions to enable maximum efficiency at hospitals. (UNI)
