Rajesh Batra has logged over 22 years in Information Technology in various capacities of which over five years is in the Healthcare sector. He has been involved in strategizing IT for Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and the implementation thereof from the scratch making it more hunky dory.


The evolution- Then and Now


There was a time when hospitals didn’t invest in IT, but today they don’t see it as a challenge rather a part of their strategy to grow. Things have evolved with a jet speed in the past few years. Few years back the industry lacked one such technology that was able to run a hospital from start to end. Back office needed a separate system. But technology has come a long way since and has become more intelligent.


With HIS (Hospital Information System) which is the life blood of technology at Kokilaben Hospital, I just need couple of systems to run it. Through HIS, all the information about patients is interfaced in a single point of information, starting from the time when the patient walks in the hospital to the time he goes out and also generates the bill.
