Dr Mahesh Inder VS, CEO, Saket City Hospital, talks to Shally Makin, ENN on his new role in redefining healthcare
With the new role at Saket City Hospital, what vision do you carry to build up this hospital with?
Our vision is clear and succinct i.e. building a world-class centre of excellence and innovation in quality healthcare delivery and patient care experience by developing a culture and environment of compassionate care. To achieve this we have taken significant steps towards creating a team of professionals who have the passion of treating patients with utmost compassion, respect and understanding.
What specialty is being offered at present and what to expect in near future?
SCH offers five super specialties – Cardiac Sciences, Neurosciences, Gastroenterology & Gastrointestinal Surgery, Orthopedics and Joint Replacement and Obstetrics n Gynecology. Philips, our technology partner has bestowed us with the best diagnostic equipment’s in radio diagnosis, critical care and operation theatres.
When it comes to technological advancement with a new setup, what all are you pitching on?
In the context of healthcare services, technology brings efficiency and enhances the quality of services offered at SCH. We are working towards developing a unique user-friendly Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution along with other seamless Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software’s.
Clinical support at SCH is underlined by installation of equipments such as Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) module; facility for virtual ICU and Cath Lab. For instance, during routine visits and emergency our doctors will have the access to all records and patient specific data from anywhere in the hospital and out of hospital.
Also radiology is integrated with ICU for digital monitoring and ultimately merges with the EMR.
Tell us about your achievements in digital innovations, how far you see the hospital going paperless?
Digitalisation does not mean “going paperless”. It ensures access to quality and accurate data, which catalyses faster decision making and better hospital management. Digitalisation also ensures centralising all operational procedures to a common platform. For instance, the operation theatres, intensive care units and other critical departments require efficient room temperature and humidity management control systems, which need to be well integrated with the overall hospital management communications system. Our technology platform is well equip ped to weave digital innovation into the administration fabric thereby ensuring quicker access and filtering of data by integrating functions.
