Nasscom CoE-IoT is an innovation hub for start-ups that provides a platform for collaborative innovation.
“We are committed to drive digital adoption in India but we know that we can’t do it alone.

Also speaking on the occasion, Debjani Ghosh, President, NASSCOM, stated, “The future of healthcare is shaping up in front of our eyes mainly through digital technologies, such as the Internet of things, artificial intelligence, VR/AR, 3D-printing, robotics or nanotechnology. In medicine and healthcare, digital technology can help transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones, equalise the relationship between medical professionals and patients, and provide cheaper, faster and more effective solutions for diseases.”
