The Virtual Grand Round had participation of hospitals from across India and overseas and it facilitated diverse perspectives, vital for the ongoing Diplomate of National Board programme for multiple specialties. In addition, numerous healthcare consultants, clinicians, medical students and medical practitioners participated in the discussion from their respective cities.

Speaking at the launch of the ACKN, Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group said, "Since our inception in 1983, over 150 million people came to us from over 140 countries and honoured us with their trust. This we believe is our greatest strength and in this journey of healing, it is our doctors who have been the protagonists and their commitment to keep raising the bar in clinical excellence inspires us every day. Now, as we move ahead, the Apollo Clinical Knowledge Network powered by the Medvarsity Assimilate Platform will further stretch the boundaries of clinical acumen and leverage the power of knowledge sharing for superlative patient care."

The Apollo Clinical Knowledge Network was initiated to build a robust clinical community and to impact the quality of healthcare through education. Now ACKN will be a robust platform for the DNB teams across hospitals and will assist them to collaborate for clinical case studies and share knowledge.

Medvarsity brought together the hospitals and participating members on its single online platform by streaming the session live for all the participants and made it possible for them to be an active part in the discussion. Medvarsity's Assimilate platform is the leading platform of choice for healthcare professionals to attend live medical lectures, surgical demos and grand rounds.

Commenting on this, Mr. Gerald Jaideep, CEO, Medvarsity said,  "We are privileged to be partnering with Apollo Hospitals on this prestigious initiative and do thank them for giving us this opportunity. Bringing the best faculty live to a large clinical audience is a critical aspect of medical education. "  

Medvarsity enabled the Grand Round via live streaming which allowed the clinicians to discuss critical cases. After the case presentation, 15 minutes of Q&A session via chat box, along with special AV access to the remote participants ensured their part in the discussion.
