Oct 06, 2019. Dubai – Khalid Shaikh, Founder, CEO of Prognica Labs, has been named “Technology Rising Star of the Year” at the high-profile Future Enterprise Awards 2019 hosted by TahawulTech.
Khalid is working relentlessly towards a long term goal of making cancer screening and diagnostics more accurate, affordable and accessible by building an AI platform.
“I am excited to win this award, and could not have achieved it without all the hard work and dedication of a great team and the support of our advisors. The future is bright for Prognica as there are great products coming on the way and great opportunities for our technology all around the world.”
Healthcare as we know today has several problems.
- The first one being that, the doctor-to-patient ratio is terribly low worldwide.
- The doctors themselves are overworked and overstretched which may lead to the variability and subjectivity in the way that the diseases are diagnosed and treated.
- And the quality medical equipments are quite expensive, which make it difficult for any organization to adopt the latest technology at scale.
“We at Prognica are trying to address these issues through data and intelligence. We are developing the next generation smart screening technology for medical image analysis that healthcare providers and patients can confidently rely on” says Khalid.
