Last week, TPP went live with SystmOne in a primary health centre in India. The centre, based in the state of Greater Noida, will become a flagship of fully digitalised patient care.
Dr John Parry, Clinical Director, TPP commented “I am very pleased to see the benefits of SystmOne being transferred into new international markets. This go live demonstrates our commitment and ability to deliver innovative technologies in new healthcare delivery areas, meeting the needs of the patient, provider and payer. Digitalisation of healthcare records is central to addressing global health issues and will bring major improvements in the delivery of patient care, and public health.”
The primary health centre will be using SystmOne to electronically record all aspects of a patient’s care including appointments, consultations and medication. The centre was setup by Brit Healthcare, a consortium of eight doctors from Wolverhampton, UK. Clinicians at Brit Health Care already knew about the pioneering work TPP have done with the UK NHS and the adoption of SystmOne in India was the next logical step.
TPP worked in partnership with Brit Health Care to develop additional system functionality, including billing, to make the system suitable to the privatised model of healthcare in India. This allows SystmOne to be easily adopted in other healthcare organisations across India to create a connected, digitalised model helping to better manage the rise of non-communicable diseases.
Dr. R. Mohindroo, CEO, Brit Health Care says “Brit Health Care is pleased that TPP has managed to develop and establish an Electronic Medical Records system for the Indian market. The team has worked hard on the project and have adapted the system based on the needs of staff and clinicians in the centre. I would like to congratulate the team.”
Following the UK government trade mission to India in February 2013, TPP are continuing to explore opportunities across India.
Over 2014, Brit Health Care plan to establish more primary health centres across India, which will all use SystmOne.
