New Delhi [India], January 19 (ANI/ATK): The main problem in India's healthcare system, particularly in rural regions, is a shortage of doctors. There is one doctor for every 1,511 Indians, but this is only an average. Most doctors are based in cities, so the doctor-patient ratio in India's villages is far below than WHO norm of 1:1,000. Could artificial intelligence (AI) - which is being hailed as the next big frontier in healthcare globally - help solve this crisis? That's why Yolo Health Foundation founder Vinayak kumar have strong belief that his organization can solve rural India's problem through its own Health ATM.
Yolo Health Foundation is focused on addressing key issues in the areas of health and Mental health, this is very important and have significant impact on individuals, communities, and society.

Vinayak Kumar is the founder of Yolo Health Foundation.

It is true that early detection and diagnosis of a disease can lead to more effective treatment and better outcomes. Through health ATM, disease can be recognized in advance. If it is recognized in advance, it can be cured before any major long-term effects.
The prevention of health is easier than the cure of the disease.
