Contactless remote monitoring, smart ICUs, and AI-enabled diagnoses are helping hospitals overcome shortages of physicians and beds.
At the neonatal ward of the Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Chennai, nurse T. Latha's eyes dart back and forth across the 60-inch monitor in front of her.

Acting upon an alert from the screen, she visits one of them.
