[100 Emerging Women Leaders] Meet Srushti Adani, who is making healthcare accessible with medtech


Srushti Adani was 22 years previous when she based Wellnest Tech, a medtech organisation that develops self-testing healthcare options. She talks to HerStory in regards to the final 4 years of delving deep into healthcare and constructing a related healthcare ecosystem.

“My parents are doctors and I grew up in the doctors’ quarters near an emergency ward of a hospital. I saw first-hand the importance of access to timely, quality, and affordable healthcare. My parents took a lot of effort to provide healthcare in rural areas through camps where I volunteered as a young kid. But I realised that the impact of a camp was limited by the number of doctors volunteering in the camp,” says Srushti.

After deciding to not change into a physician, Srushti accomplished her engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, US.

When she was able to take the entrepreneurial plunge, she was shocked on the blatant stereotypes that arose as a consequence of her age and gender.

“The entire sexism towards me was garbed in the form of statements like ‘oh you are too young’. When I was trying to look for co-founders with greater experience who could guide me, I often found people who questioned me about my marriage plans, and if the venture was a ‘hobby’. So, I used to question them back … whether they would raise the same questions if it was a 22-year-old man. Would they still think that the man would change his mind after marriage and kids, or would they call it his ‘hobby’?”

Srushti recognized the accessibility points in cardio associated illnesses and developed the organisation Wellnest, which does not want super-specialty or huge infrastructure to function.

A passionate problem-solver, Srushti was eager to leverage the intersection of expertise and innovation to make healthcare accessible and inexpensive.

Wellnest is a health-tech firm established from a want to make use of innovation, design pondering, and cutting-edge expertise to unravel healthcare issues the world over.

With a objective to cut back diagnostic delay, the organisation makes use of IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) to develop diagnostic options which are inexpensive, accessible, and actionable.

The firm has developed an app-enabled ECG (echocardiography) machine. The machine helps folks conduct an ECG take a look at by themselves, which might then be despatched to a physician by way of the app for evaluation.

Advising girls entrepreneurs, Srushti says, “Be very self-assured. A lot of people will question you on the basis of your gender. But just be prepared and be confident to sometimes answer back.”
