Healthcare industry is keeping pace for integrating technology in its working space, but there are several healthcare providers who still lag in adoption of technology especially small and mid-sized hospitals. The reason being unawareness about technological advancements.
Healthcare industry in India is bereft of a proper guideline for Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and a proper regulation system. These negligence are widening the gap between the requirements of healthcare providers and its deliverables. Several healthcare providers are still maintaining the entire medical records manually. With a mission to transform this manual work system through its innovative solutions and services, PALASH Healthcare System (PHS) came into existence in 2006 in Pune, soon establishing a strong client base mainly in India, UAE, Africa, Caribbean, South East Asia and Europe.
PHS has created state-of-the-art comprehensive enterprise- wide Healthcare Information Management System (HIMS), Clinical Information Management System (CIMS), Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR), Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Analytics software provider. Its faculty focused frameworks and operational components cover all aspects of management and operations of hospitals and clinics. PHS provides solutions for small and medium hospitals & clinics, where they have streamlined the entire processes seamlessly. Under the supervision of Dinesh Samudra, Founder & CEO, the company provides various solutions – Multispeciality, Healthcare platform, Clinical Management, IVF, Ophthalmology, Diabetic and Nephrocare to name a few.
PHS has enabled the easiness of the entire workflow mechanism with its single point integrated solutions. Earlier, these hospitals struggled to maintain manual data efficiently. With the implementation of PHS solutions, information of patients, labs or others are instantaneously accessible in a single click. These solutions comprise various modules as per requirement. For example – Nephrocare, which consists of various modules like a patient, billing, laboratory, radiology, nephrology EMR feature, inventory and interfaces to name a few. These modules are streamlined in such a way that the entire medical details about any specific patient are accessible by the physicians or the authorized user. Hence, it eradicates the entire confusion and makes a systematic workflow.
Adopting the latest technology and changing itself as per the need of the hour is what PHS believes in. Thus, it has equipped itself with cloud-based HIMS solutions. The company merged HIMS and CIMS solutions and developed its version 1.0 that enables centralised data management. Accessibility of any particular patient portal by a concerned physician is also made possible by this cloud-based solution. PHS also provides commercial application delivery and revenue analysis services. The solutions come with remote accessibility that allows the user to easily access through smartphones and tablets. The company is attracting VCs attention with its successful solutions and are expecting a funding amount of USD 5million within a year along with a web portal they soon plan to launch.
Currently serving clients in India, including Sunshine Hospital, Alchemist, Kamalnayan Bajaj Hospital, Mewar Hospital, Inamdar Multispeciality Hospital to name a few, the company extends its offering to international clients as well. It envisions to expand its offices in the UK, Europe, and Africa soon.
Over all the years of its operations PALASH has not only been analogous with the domain but has also scrupulously seen the issues associated with it. Our experience says that the major problem of this industry lies in the fact that the health records of the patients are all in silos. This creates duplicated records that are cumbersome to carry and maintain for the individual. PALASH has strongly narrowed down upon creating a common and unique health identification number for everyone in order to overcome the problem of health records in silos. PALASH will present this platform SWARM. HIE (Health Information Exchange) through a web based portal Consulting Connect that will not only generate a unique health identity for the individual but will also bridge the gap between healthcare providers and individuals. Consulting Connect will have two main tools that will efficiently manage the major entities of this ecosystem “ the practitioners and the individuals. The doctors will be assisted by PALASH Practice and the individuals have PALASH Fingertips at their disposal for maintaining their health information.
