Technology is changing, changing the world we live in, moreover healthcare is an area that has the potential to benefit from technology, she said.

"As a practising sonologist and foetal therapist I have seen the evolvement of technology in the medical field. Initially, the ultrasound machines were bigger in size, now we have handy machines and the diagnosis is more accessible and easy.
As a medical student, I would struggle to get the vein for transmission, if we get the vein, we would be very happy and celebrate the occasion.
But as a foetal therapist, after my training in foetal therapy at Kerala, I have addressed foetal vein through ultrasound guidance and that is the evolvement of technology," she said to drive home her point.
The patient safety is a problem not just for India, but also a major issue for developed countries, if it is taken care off we can save on money and that can be spent to address better facilities and make health care affordable and accessible, the Governor said.
