Speaker at: eHealth India 2011
Date: 14-16 December 2011
Venue: Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar, Gujarat
Brief: Dr Dinesh Jain, Max Healthcare, shares his experience that Vista has enriched the system with its clinical features, which many other proprietary products lack
Max healthcare operates eleven hospitals in North India and it is the second hospital chain in the country to adopt VA Vista. VA develops the VA Vista system and releases it under Release of Information Act because it is the tax payer who had paid for its development. Subsequently VA Vista was taken over by an open source community called World Vista, which made it available to the world. We integrated the product with our own Hospital Information System (HIS) to make it compatible with the way we are working in this country. Being an open source system, it provides lot of flexibility. We want to carry forward with our Hospital Information system (HIS), which took care of patient management requirements of typical Indian hospitals. We were able to adapt to the system, which were not designed for Indian healthcare industry and we used them effectively in Indian context.
