Dr Abhinay Bollineni
CEO, KIMS Hospitals

What we liked about Smart Joules and their model is the fact that they are willing to get their hands dirty, they are willing to take that risk, of saying I will optimise and only then take a certain share of the revenue. There is a lot of comfort [in knowing] that they are giving the right solution, they are going to come up with the best technology and they will figure out if the best practices are in place for the best long term durability
