Dell Streamlines Patient Care In India With New Cloud-Based Healthcare Solution
“There is a seismic shift happening in the global healthcare industry. The overarching trend is to integrate and move information to the right person or system at the right time — whether it's a provider's staff, external service provider, or the consumer (patient or prospect),”said Sudhanshu Bhandari, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research. “The ability to create an information infrastructure that brings together the micro level of personalized health and the macro level of epidemiologic mappings to institutional quality and evidence-based practices will be a key differentiator for healthcare providers in future. Cloud-based end-to-end business services would help healthcare companies jump start these business initiatives and collaborate with global peer institutions. However, the Indian healthcare market is still very cost competitive and more maturity is needed to effectively leverage cloud-based solutions.”
“We are extending Dell’s proven capabilities and global healthcare leadership to India and have brought in the best-of-breed combination of HIS and ERP to help providers achieve their goal of providing efficient, information-driven healthcare in an affordable way. We will continue to bring to India unique solutions that will allow healthcare providers to focus on their number one goal-- enhanced patient care,” said Sid Nair, vice president and global general manager, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Dell Services. “The solution is truly one of a kind in terms of its capabilities, delivery model and pricing. We believe that this will be a game changer for the Indian healthcare industry, where hospitals are constrained by huge upfront capital investments, and higher cost of licensing, maintenance and support.”
This solution is available today in India and is an integral part of Dell’s vision of building future-ready IT platforms to provide cutting-edge technology and services that enable innovation in Health IT. The cloud-based solution also extends Dell’s Cloud strategy of providing choice and flexibility to customers to drive tangible business results through cloud computing.
