Systematising the collection of patients’ healthcare data, the platform can be integrated with EHR/EMR (electronic health record/electronic medical record) and with the added attribute of interoperability, the data can be accessed from varying systems, says Michael allwyn, Co-Founder and Director, Gem3s, in conversation with Elets News Network (ENN).
Q How is telemedicine different in its approach in comparison to traditional ways of providing treatment to patients?
The solution which we are offering is different from traditional way of telemedicine where the approach was not patient centric. At the same time we are also different from the present method of telemedicine promoted across globe which is “Uber Model”.
Our approach here is that a patient should always have a continuity of care provided.
We are not a promoter of the software / product / solution. Instead we provide these solutions to hospitals / clinics and urgent cares who will be running the show. What we do is, we white label our solution and customise it as per the client’s needs. In this case our customers are Urgent Cares, Hospitals and Clinics.
Q You offer various services including EHR/EMR (EPIC) and ICD-10, CPT Integration, reports/ statics and population health data, can you shed some light over these?
The platform is capable of supporting multiple doctors /facilities without large investments for its installation, making it possible for multi- specialty hospitals or a group of hospitals to adopt the solution without a hitch.

Gem3s has also paid special attention to the connectivity obstacles in India and has tailored the platform to perform fairly well in a standard 3G connection.
Q In the era of the Internet, technology is playing a pivotal role to drive healthcare sector to the extra mile. How cloud technology can play a significant role to help both patients and healthcare service providers?
Solutions like us which are cloud based are currently helping out large practices and healthcare to change the way how healthcare system was running before.
Now technologies like us help the patient to take preventive treatment, provide continuity of care and help them to intrude and invade the issue at a very earlier stage and this is all because of easy access.
