In addition, while Zubin was the first person in Ireland to use a robot to conduct tele ward rounds on orthopaedic patients and one of the first in Singapore to use telemedicine at departmental level in the National University Hospital, his proudest contribution was the pro bono work he did with Singapore’s Ministry of Health during the Covid pandemic in regard to not only the conceptualisation but also build and use of their Telemedicine Allocation and Reconciliation System (TMARS) that subsequently became the default platform nationally for use by Singapore’s foreign worker population, an at-risk group that Dr. Daruwalla has always kept close to his heart.
