President of Lahore TiE Chapter, Humayun Mazhar, delivered his closing remarks at the end.
“I feel that there is humongous potential in Pakistani healthcare delivery. We are not able to serve 200 million people through our traditional public sector hospitals, even with private hospitals due to financial and logistical barriers. Additions direly needed include telemedicine, technology driven gadgets and web-based consultation. This will help the government to penetrate every nook and cranny of Pakistan”
What followed were Mr. Naveed Chowdhry’s remarks (Naveed is Vice President of the Lahore TiE Chapter):
“Throughout the ages, the quest for the preservation of life, treatment of ailments (whether through preventative or curative methods) and the extension of life span have been at the forefront of our existence.”
The talk ended on high note with active participation from the relevant circles, academia, professionals, startup founders, incubators and accelerators. The audience applauded the efforts and greatly appreciated the format of the program.Google+
