In this article, Mayur Saxena, CEO of Droice Labs discusses the challenges doctors face in today’s healthcare system due to overwhelming data and administrative burdens, which detract from patient care and suggests that AI and machine learning technologies offer solutions by transforming data into actionable insights, improving efficiency and accuracy in healthcare delivery.

Mayur emphasizes the importance of involving doctors for startups developing AI-based healthcare solutions from the outset and offers insights into the key attributes that startups need to seek in their doctor-advisors.
