SevenHills Hospital, Mumbai is one of the first paperless hospitals in India. Gone are the days of hand-scrawled notes, scribbled prescriptions, big charts, patient queues, and lost patient records. Today, all this information and critical details are no more than a click away. Realising how IT is fast bringing a makeover of the healthcare industry and changing the face of traditional doctor-patient relationship, the management at SevenHills wanted to implement technology to gain optimum operational efficiency.
With three decades of experience in healthcare, instead of first building a process and then implementing a hospital information system, the hospital built in all the processes with SevenHills e-Health, the e-Healthcare suite.
SevenHills e-Health is a healthcare IT solutions company with a strong healthcare domain. The SevenHills e-Health HIS caters to the needs of the hospital and makes the usage as simple as possible for the doctors and the medical staff. The emphasis is laid to use the HIS system for all functions in the hospital. SevenHills hospitals have implemented a one-stop data warehouse of records of patients and treatment histories that can be consulted by authorised experts, keeping patient confidentiality uppermost in mind. With SevenHills e-Health the hospital has integrated almost all processes in the hospital, right from the front office registration to doctor consultation, investigations, the complete in-patient treatment, more so even the collection management. Among the many modules implemented, the main ones are operations, inventory, clinical collection management, marketing & forecast, PACS, workforce management and integration with finance are all seamlessly connected and are available at a press of a button to the designated staff.
Every patient at SevenHills hospital is allocated a unique health identification number (UHID) along with a registration card. This UHID provides the complete details of the patient’s medical history as recorded in HIS at any point of time during subsequent visits. Once the patient gets registered they are then directed to a Medical Officer who captures the patient’s problem, history, allergies and vitals and records in SevenHills e-Hea
