The following challenges persist: a) tests cost too much, b) quality tests not available in the neighbourhood, c) Cumbersome to go and collect test reports, d) many tests are not need, e) many tests are repeated as they are not shared within the profession, f) tests take too much time, g) doctors are unable to retain patients, h) patients may go undiagnosed, i) economic loss to society due to lost man-days for longer recovery, j) we need new business models to create scalable and sustainable models.
