I had the amazing pleasure of talking to Ram Rajaraman on the podcast today to talk about his journey with Chai Analytics. We talked about the future of data analytics and how it can impact the healthcare industry. Ram explained the challenges he faced while developing his innovative business during the covid-19 pandemic. He also shared his thoughts on how to scale a business organically while maintaining a healthy work-life balance and managing resources in an effective way.


"In other industries, demand it’s step one in terms of understanding your production line effectively and planning your capacity based on predicting demand. I do truly believe it can be done in healthcare." Ram Rajaraman
