What is your current market share in India and what growth level are you targeting over next few years?

Due to non-standardization, healthcare systems are immensely complicated, both in terms of organization and technologies.
Like most solution providers, do you find the mid and small segment hospitals to be more challenging, particularly in terms of bringing them in confidence regarding ROI, business value and service quality improvement?
Yes, mid and small segment hospitals are more challenging as compared to the larger hospitals. The mid and small segments look forward to improve the quality and effectiveness of health care through moderate costs. Their expectations are high in terms of fostering innovation through minimal financial accountability.
What level of difference do you observe in terms of understanding and acceptance of IT-based systems implementation among doctors, nurses, administrators and decision makers of healthcare institutions?
Computerization is not still on the top priority in the hospitals in India. The mindset of hospitals on the whole is not receptive to Information Technology. Yet it can be seen that the understanding and acceptance is more among the administrators and decision makers and lesser among doctors whereas least among nurses.
In future, hospitals are not only expected to become paperless and filmless, they are also said to become intelligent, networked and mobile. What are your plans in terms of new product or solution development, to cater to this next generation hospitals?
