Kerala Selects HP India to Provide Digital Healthcare Solution

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

The Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Kerala, has selected HP India to create an e-Health IT platform to enable the delivery of a digital healthcare solution and services for Health Care facilities across Kerala. The digital healthcare solution will help healthcare practitioners to improve patient care and focus resources.

The Department of Health & Family Welfare (DHFW) is responsible for delivering healthcare across a vast geographic area to more than 33 million citizens through more than 1,250 healthcare delivery facilities including over 1,000 public and community healthcare centres, and almost 200 hospitals and medical colleges.

Delivering efficient and effective patient care was previously hampered by largely manual processes that generated many thousands of patient records which were often dispersed across many locations.

The DHFW chose HP to design and build a digital healthcare delivery roadmap for the 1,250+ facilities around the region. The roadmap outlines the steps to digitize the entire State healthcare delivery process in stages or phases starting from basic capturing of demographic details of every patient to complete Electronic Medical Record (EMR) creation.
