Technology solutions major Hewlett-Packard has set a target of signing up with about 2,000 small and medium-sized hospitals in the country by the end of the current fiscal. The US-based company will provide IT infrastructure to hospitals in the 50-500 bed range in association with partners that provide IT services, said Mr Ashok Pamidi, Director-SMB and Enterprise Partners, Technology Solutions Group. “Hospitals today are looking at automating many aspects of their healthcare business through IT adoption. Moreover, unlike many other sectors, the healthcare sector is fairly organised in the country,” he said on the sidelines of a news conference recently. Currently HP has associations with around 12 hospitals in the country. While HP provides the technological backbone related to the IT infrastructure, its partners would act as systems integrators who would specialise in providing the relevant software and local support. Bangalore-based Wipro is one of HP`s partners. The time-saving aspect of IT is the most critical reason for IT outsourcing
