HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST. SPEAKER. WRITER. UTOPIAN DREAMER.

ABOUT

Inderjith Davalur is a healthcare technology specialist, speaker, writer and utopian dreamer.

Inder works with hospitals committed to transforming the healthcare paradigm with the aid of new innovative technologies. His primary area of interest lies in using data analytics and technologies such as Deep Learning to shift the current physician-driven healthcare model to a patient-driven market dynamic.

Inder focuses on the manifold ways in which data crunching and machine learning can lead to better diagnoses that can not only be made at the time of illness, but predicted way before any symptoms surface. The path ahead in the sector, he believes, lies in the deployment of evolving technologies that immensely influence both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of healthcare, delivering real patient-driven, data-enabled, informed healthcare.

Inder currently works as the Group CIO at KIMS Hospitals Private Limited, Hyderabad and has previously assumed leadership roles at leading hospitals and companies, in India and the United States of America. Not only has he helped implement EHR solutions and integrated IT solutions for hospitals, but as MIS Director of a private healthcare firm that managed 14 hospitals spread over four states in New England, US, he pioneered the concept of a Data Dashboard in 1993. During this phase, he worked on the Patient Privacy and Electronic Records Committee for the states of Massachusetts and Georgia that gave birth to the widely known Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996.

Passionate about his work, Inder enjoys sharing his experiences and learnings at healthcare conferences and events he is invited to speak at. When he is not working, Inder finds repose in music, reading, writing and charcoal sketching. Curious, impulsive and oddly analytical, he experiments with varied genres where his hobbies are concerned, and is not above writing the occasional poem that doesn’t rhyme.
