The speakers participating in the discussion were Gaurav Agarwal, Co-founder of TATA 1mg; Dr Geetha Manjunath, founder of health tech startup NIRAMAI Health Analytix; Ankit Maheshwari, Chief Technology Officer & Founding Team Member at Innovaccer, a health data cloud platform; and Dr Rajiv Chhibber, Vice President – External Affairs at medical equipment manufacturer, Sahajanand Medical Technologies Pvt. (SMT).
