41 Countries Later, This Doc’s Pick for Best Health System “Hack” | Dr. Niti Pall, KPMG & AXA

By JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF HEALTH

Dr. Niti Pall has experience working in 41 different health systems around the world in her roles as Global Medical Director for KPMG, Senior Mobile Health Advisor for AXA, and as a General Practitioner in the U.K. With that type of diverse experience across health systems rich and poor, tech-enabled and not, OF COURSE we had to ask which was the best health system ‘hack’ she’s seen so far. The answer takes us to Bangladesh, involves a huge telecom company, and leads to a completely new category of healthcare provider. Is this a model we’ll see Amazon, Apple, Google or other non-traditional healthcare players take up as they head into the health industry? Niti talks about how tech is the underpinning of “proper 21st Century healthcare,” but that’s not all it will it take to overcome global clinician shortages and help consumers feel like they are getting value out of their healthcare dollars worldwide.
