eClinicalWorks expands in Asia with USD 30 million investment
Bangalore, Dec 10 - eClinicalWorks, a leader in healthcare IT solutions originating from the United States, headquartered at Westborough, announces a USD 30 million investment to further digital healthcare in Asia, specifically India and additional countries in the region, which will develop talent and cloud-based technology infrastructure in this region.
These efforts coincide with the Digital India initiative aimed at ensuring various services, including healthcare-related ones, are made available to citizens electronically.
Operating since 1998, eClinicalWorks has established the largest cloud-based healthcare platform in the United States, delivering healthcare information technology solutions in the form of electronic patient medical records, population health and patient engagement tools for more than 1,15,000 doctors.
Tele health capabilities allow patients to access their doctors via their mobile phones, enabling them to immediately address medical concerns, regardless of location, bringing medical expertise to rural areas where access to healthcare may not be near. This investment will build a similar cloud-based technology infrastructure in India, delivering digital healthcare for the following groups:
Hospitals: eClinicalWorks' cloud-based Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) covers all aspects of hospital management, automating processes from patient registration through discharge. Emergency room services, documenting patient care, managing tests, blood banks and the surgical theatre are all covered. Hospitals can also manage human resources functions and payroll
Physicians: eClinicalWorks' flagship, cloud-based patient medical records solution streamlines the doctor's office and aims to improve the quality of care for thousands of organizations and can be accessed via computer, tablet or mobile device. It also aids with practice management and billing
Patients: Expanding communication between consumers and healthcare providers, including tele health visits, plays an important role in enhancing care. Advancing patient engagement can improve health outcomes and lay a foundation for many care coordination efforts. With more than 20 crore (200 million) patients' records managed by eClinicalWorks' technology worldwide, the company offers several tools for these initiatives, including mobile apps available on iOS and Android
"We have dedicated our professional careers to improving the delivery of healthcare by providing technology and services to lower costs, reduce errors and enhance the quality of care," said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. " eClinicalWorks has built a successful infrastructure that has positively impacted care in the United States. As we look to expand, India offers appealing opportunities that are in line with our vision. We look forward to our continued work in this country, laying a technology foundation for healthcare organizations, offering their patients optimal care", he added. (ANI)
