Microsoft Forays Into Indian Healthcare Market with Its AI Capabilities

Microsoft AI network for cardiology has partnered with Apollo Hospitals to harness new perspectives for curing heart diseases.

Microsoft AI network for cardiology has partnered with Apollo Hospitals, an Indian healthcare chain, to harness new perspectives for curing heart diseases and to innovate the Indian cardiac healthcare space.

Arvind Sivaramakrishnan, Chief Information Officer, Apollo Hospitals, said, "This was a large transactional sample of data and we had to work with clinical experts and data scientists to ensure that the entire dataset, and not just a sample dataset, was correct. It required a significant amount of computing power and design guidelines from a technology perspective. This is where we used Microsoft Azure to upload the data to the cloud and some of the SQL tools to put it into the data warehouse from where data scientists and clinicians could statistically correlate and train the machine learning models." 

Anil Bhansali, Corporate Vice President, Cloud, and Enterprise, Microsoft India (R&D), stated, "Over the last two years, we have been working with a dynamic partner ecosystem of local, regional and global organizations to bring the power of AI to healthcare. We started with eyecare and today, we are expanding into cardiac care. We have been working with our customers and partners within the healthcare sector to create AI models that can help provide doctors and health care providers insights in their treatment plans. Our partnership with Apollo Hospitals will be a major step in the journey towards providing accessible healthcare to everyone."
