"If anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind"; this is the philosophy that drives me. I am a practicing neurologist, sub-specialized in neurocritical care, stroke & epilepsy. As Vice President of Clinical Strategy at VeeOne Health, I help healthcare organizations implement value-based virtual care in various clinical settings using virtual care. I am deeply interested in the future of medical education & founded AINeuroCare Academy, a next-generation educational platform focusing on digital health, artificial intelligence in healthcare, and value-based care. My passion lies at the intersection of virtual care and AI in Healthcare and its convergence to create value for patients and clinicians.
