The investment will focus on developing cloud-based technology infrastructure here, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
‘Digital India’ drive
These efforts coincide with the Centre’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ drive aimed at attracting global firms to invest on manufacturing in the country, it said.
eClinicalWorks has said tele health capabilities allow patients to access their doctors via mobile phones and enable them to immediately address medical concerns, regardless of location. It helps in providing medical expertise in rural areas where facilities are not available easily.
