The world of artificial intelligence (AI) is likely to enable huge efficiency with remote patient monitoring and interfacing with medical practitioners and research models.

This podcast is based on the American Market but with opportunity to expand to India and Australia and describes the work now being done to create an affordable pain management product which provides remote patient diagnostic, therapy and data collection remotely.

Note – the subject matter is complex but really describes well the future options for remote interactive care for chronic pain patients.

Dr. Krishnan Chakravarthy is an expert anesthesiologist with a unique specialization in multi-modal pain management. In this episode, he delves into the fascinating world of pain management start-ups and med-tech. Dr. Chakravarthy emphasizes the significance of understanding the key problems in the industry when developing core technologies for the market. He sheds light on his team’s mission to make cutting-edge technology more accessible and affordable, aiming to reach a broader population in need of specialized care.
