In quest of business productivity and efficiency SAP HANA forges ahead with applications and innovations in mobile, analytics and cloud. SAP ERP Foundation Extension organised a group session at the Taj Palace, New Delhi on August 7th, 2013 that aimed to augment and boost the critical core processes – such as finance, human resources, IT management, manufacturing, procurement, sales, service and compliance
The session spilled with innovative insights in healthcare and helped in laying the ground work for rewiring between entrepreneurs, investors and consultants in the healthcare domain. Panelists who participated in the round table discussions included secretaries from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare namely Dr Vishwas Meheta, Joint Secretary, Nikunja Dhal, Joint Secretary, Dr (Prof) Jagdish Prasad, Director General Health Services, Dr Rajiv Shrivastava – Deputy Director (I/C), Dr Ashish Gupta – utive Haryana State Health Resources and representatives from Dell and others.
The discussion include seven sessions, Government Initiatives in Healthcare: The Road ahead, SAP case study: Technology and Healthcare services, Demonstration of Next Generation Healthcare Solutions: TracOHealth and SanGenix by SAP and Dell, Medical education: An Integrated Initiative of Public and Private Sector and SAP case study: Technology and Healthcare Services. Dr Vishwas Mehta speaking on medical education said, Medical education is the work of Medical Council of India (MCI) and we are still managing with the same old and outdated British era rules and regulations. To regulate the national health infrastructure, we need 1:17 patient-doctor ratio. Private nursing homes are growing up because there is a huge gap between demand and supply. Speaking on where on the portal should patient seeks information, Nikunja Dhal opined, Once we notified the Emergency Medical Response (EMR) to the respective hospital we will provide funding only if they conform to those standards. In the commission itself, we have people from private set-up, we would actually mandate it with state government. We are speaking to the state and we also need voluntary collaboration from National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).
Dr (Prof) Jagdish Prasad said, Technology has great relevance in medical studies. For instance, telemedicine needs to be used extensively in the medical colleges, however, only a few practioners are using it at the moment and the Government has not implemented it fully. Moreover, Internet penetration is lacking, which needs to be upgraded as well. We are always open to Public Private Partnership (PPP) model, but if you consider the situation in India, industrialists dont want to invest in hospitals. They all must invest 10 percent of their profit for people. If they do so, our country will be best in the world.
