New Delhi: Sud­hir Pai, the former chief ex­ec­u­tive of Mul­ti­ples Al­ter­na­tive As­set Man­age­ment-backed Vikram Hos­pi­tal, has quit the com­pany to join Ben­galuru-based health­care ser­vices startup ABI Health as the strate­gic and busi­ness head of its data sci­ences and ma­chine learn­ing ini­tia­tives.

Pai, who came on board ear­lier this month, joins former Ya­hoo and In­tuit In­dia ex­ec­u­tive Ranga Shetty, who joined the Nor­west Ven­ture Part­ners-backed ABI Health as its tech­nol­ogy head about four months ago.

Shetty will play a lead­ing role in build­ing and de­vel­op­ing the startup’s deep learn­ing team, ac­cord­ing to Ajit Veer­ap­pan, founder, ABI Health. Ben­galuru-based health ex­change and im­age man­age­ment cloud soft­ware provider also op­er­ates in the US and Peru, and has its own imag­ing suite, called Spec­tra, which con­nects all stake­hold­ers — doc­tors, hos­pi­tals and pa­tients.

“He has run mul­ti­ple suc­cess­ful ven­tures in clin­i­cal re­search, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals and hos­pi­tals. In terms of data sci­ences for us, Sud­hir’s deep do­main knowl­edge will help pro­vide us more value propo­si­tion to our tar­get au­di­ences,” Veer­ap­pan told ET.

“This is a log­i­cal step for­ward for me after stints in pharma, clin­i­cal re­search and hos­pi­tal. I can put the hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence I have gained in the in­dus­try to great use at ABI in de­liv­er­ing ef­fi­cient sys­tems into the health­care in­dus­try, re­sult­ing in bet­ter pa­tient out­comes,” Pai said in a state­ment.
