With 2 decades of experience in Healthcare Technology Management, TriMed is doing a lot of projects in India especially in Delhi and Northern States. “We are working on maintenance management, web-based online Dashboard and training programmes for biomedical engineers, said Selvakumar Devannan, Managing Director, TriMed Solutions (India) Pvt. Ltd., while delivering a speech at Healthcare Innovation Summit, Hyderabad.
Adding further, Devannan said, “Here, we are trying to bring the technology that we have learnt from our experiences and implement the same practices in India. We believe that so that it can pick up in the faster manner and catch up with other developing countries.”
Digitisation has penetrated in our daily lives and it is time to leverage technology that will create patient-centric healthcare systems that can improve response time, reduce human error and save costs.
“Today, technology is playing a pivotal role in healthcare delivery. The Government of India through National Health Mission (NHM) is implementing many projects in PPP mode. The State Governments are also coming up with new innovative projects to cater people with accessible and affordable healthcare,” Selvakumar Devannan, Managing Director, TriMed Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd said.
Speaking at length on how PPP model is proving the healthcare space in India, Devannan said, “Public private partnerships help to be an enabler to improve patient care, enabling people to avail quality and accessible healthcare.”
Shedding light on maintaining hospitals, Devannan is of the opinion that hospitals are more than just about maintenance. There are certain other parameters which elevates a patient’s experience in the hospitals.
“A biomedical engineer has to play a role in equipment purchase and technology assessment which at the present scenario is not taking place in the country. Then it is also important to evaluate the equipment and machinery on the basis of its initial cost as well as its operating cost. Due to the growing complexity of medical devices, biomedical engineers have to play an active role in health technology assessment, which can bridge the gap between research and implementation. We are trying to come in terms with training programs to the engineers in the country”, said Devannan.
Technology is bridging the gap and altering the way doctors and patients interact with each other. This is nothing but a revolution the transformation healthcare services are witnessing today with advanced medical technology, improved and precision diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
