Speaking on the occasion, Dr. GSK Velu, Founder and Managing Director, Trivitron Healthcare & Convener, Healthcare Panel, FICCI TNSC said, “With improved connectivity, availability of advanced indigenous med tech and personalized services by experienced doctors, Tamil Nadu has earned the distinct recognition of being a destination for affordable and quality healthcare. Forums like TANCARE will foster innovative thinking in our healthcare entrepreneurs to set new benchmarks of excellence in the state’s patient care, technology and research development.”

Mr. Ruban Hobday, Head, FICCI TNSC, added, “TANCARE pools together the right minds and ideas by acting as a one stop knowledge sharing platform for the health and related sectors in the state.”

Mr. P.
