Dell unveils new cloud-based healthcare solution

financial systems for healthcare providers in India.

Dell Services announced that it has unveiled a cloud-based
solution that seamlessly and cost effectively delivers integrated clinical and
financial systems for healthcare providers in India.

“Targeted at midsized hospitals, large hospital chains and
clinic networks, the solution ensures that providers have instant access to
uniform workflows and customized reports across entities and geographies.
Through a centralized approach, the solution gives healthcare providers the
ability to adopt automated workflows and business processes using a
single-instance application, reducing operational complexity and dependencies
on paper records,” the company said in a press statement.

Ashwin Naik, Founder and CEO, Vaatsalya Healthcare said, “The
healthcare industry in India is increasingly turning to IT adoption to improve
patient outcomes. As hospitals and providers expand their operations with new
referral centers, facilities, and acquisitions in new geographies, the need to
access, integrate and connect these disparate systems is gaining importance.
Cloud-based technology has the potential to addresses most of the IT-related
issues — access to the right information at the right time and operational
efficiency, among others. More importantly it is affordable, scalable and
flexible.”

Dell is collaborating with Ubq Technologies and Ramco
Systems to deliver an end-to-end proposition to providers. Ubq’s Hospital
Information System (HIS) solution, medics, will serve as the front-end
application for patient-centric activities and will integrate with Ramco ERP on
Cloud to provide customers seamless enterprise-wide application on the cloud.

“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,” he said.

“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.
