India is emerging as one of the leaders in the healthcare sector. With an idea of increasing this rate of this growth, Paras Healthcare aims to provide exceptional medical care to everybody. After meeting with success in Gurgaon, the hospital is looking to move to other cities to address the issues of accessibility, affordability, and quality. It is their endeavor to ensure that healthcare becomes a right and a reality for the common man. The hospitals centre of excellence lies in neurosciences, cardiac sciences, orthopaedics and joint replacement, cancer care, renal sciences, gastroenterology and GI surgery, general and laparoscopic surgery, bariatric surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, critical care, etc.
With IT playing the core role the healthcare industry is experiencing a steady and stable transformation ensuring adaptability of advanced technologies, reduction of service costs and provision of quality healthcare at affordable prices. Hospital Information System (HIS) is the core not just for the billing part, but also for everything else – whether it is statistical data, patient data, etc., both from hospital’s and doctor’s perspective. We are slowly adopting Electronic Medical Records (EMR) in our departments, which have shown pro-activeness and willingness. We are taking it as a twofive years’ plan to implement across the board. What we can do is bring in EMR in a phased manner, and at the backhand use Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP); we are using Microsoft Dynamics Navision ERP 2 – HIS, but then talking to each other is mandatory. From the patient’s perspective, data view or record keeping, EMR will become an important tool with each passing day
