Perot Systems to provide IT services to Max Healthcare
Max Healthcare and Perot Systems Corporation announced a 10-year agreement in which Perot Systems will provide IT outsourcing (ITO) and electronic health records (EHR) implementation for MHC. This agreement marks Perot Systems' first full ITO in the Indian healthcare industry as well as the company's first India-based healthcare client.
In this more than Rs. 90 crores contract, Perot Systems will provide Max Healthcare with full infrastructure management capabilities, data hosting, infrastructure support, project management support, help desk support and the implementation and clinical adoption of an electronic health records (EHR) system using VistA software, which is an open source software platform developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for healthcare facilities. The integrated Hospital Information System (HIS) and EHR will allow access to complete patient information across MHC. These advances are expected to enable MHC to improve the quality of care and patient healthcare delivery through better record accessibility, Computerised Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and care planning.
'Max Healthcare is striving to revolutionise healthcare delivery in India. In this effort, we were searching for a company with broad healthcare experience that could assume the responsibilities for our IT solutions and implement an EHR that would comply with evidence-based medicine and clinical best practice standards, ensuring quality of patient care. Perot Systems is that company,' said Dr. Pervez Ahmed, CEO & MD, Max Healthcare.
