With all the chaos created due to the pandemic, a change in the Indian healthcare industry is the need of the hour, feels Anita Sumra Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Chicago-based Jorie Healthcare Partners which recently entered India.

She says: “(Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s) proposed Ayushman Bharat scheme in the Indian Healthcare system is facing a turning point at this time. With all the chaos created due to the pandemic, a change is the need of the hour. Currently, we are still learning more about the policies and the functioning of the proposed scheme. I feel that there is potential to assist hospitals in the digitization of patient files and information as a start.”

It also works towards women empowerment and has started several programs for its benefit, apart from reserving a certain percentage of jobs for them. It also collaborated with The PINK Foundation, an NGO that facilitates the development of marginalized women in the tri-state area.

“In Chicago, we issue hire preferences to single working mothers, something that we plan to extend to the Indian arm of Jorie as well. During our hiring processes in India, we make a careful choice to ensure the percentages of female versus male staff are balanced.

She adds: “Currently, we are in the process of planning customized personality development courses where an essential part of the course will highlight mannerisms and communication skills when conversing/engaging with women employees and clients.”

Singh had also served as the President of the “Save a Mother” foundation and concentrates on educating women from a remote village in India about contraception and the prevention of mortality.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.
