Ash Kalraiya is an Orthopaedic Surgeon training at Imperial College London. While he has worked in the NHS for a decade, his passion for trauma and “fixing broken bones” has also taken him to work in South Africa and Malawi, where he operated as a World Orthopaedic Concern Fellow.
Ash founded MediShout (www.MediShout.co.uk) after witnessing hospital logistical and operational problems preventing best patient care, for example, when he had to cancel operations due to a broken theatre light bulb or had an anaesthetised patient waiting whilst he fixed a faulty printer. MediShout solves such problems by providing the world’s first mobile App for healthcare staff to instantly report any operational issue. Furthermore, smart-data collection enables healthcare organisations to see which issues are most impacting care, so these can be fixed first, and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms predict future problems.
