DUBAI, UAE, October 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The healthcare system in India is facing similar challenges to those faced in the United States during the Bush administration.
These challenges include the rise of healthcare spend and health insurance premiums, uneven healthcare quality and poor communication among doctors, hospitals, and many other healthcare providers involved in the care of any one person.
The Obama administration has taken major steps towards overcoming these challenges by investing $19 billion in computerised medical records that will help to reduce costs and improve quality while ensuring patients' privacy.
Unfortunately, India does not have $19billion to invest and the need for health informatics industry leaders in the Indian region is paramount- which is why the Next Generation Health Informatics INDIA conference could not have come at a better time.
Health informatics is a rich and diverse field with important contributions from many disciplines, including healthcare, information technology and business administration. It is primarily the use of information technology to improve healthcare delivery and the integration of information into clinical workflow to improve patient outcomes.
Luckily there are companies, who with their dedication to the Indian region are paving the way for India's healthcare market.
Companies, like CSC ,whose mission it is to be a global leader in providing technology-enabled business solutions and services, with the broadest range of capabilities, offer Indian healthcare professionals the solutions needed to manage complexity, focus on core businesses, collaborate with partners and clients and improve operations.
Similarly, Huawei - a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, has established end-to-end advantages in telecom networks, devices and cloud computing for Indian healers through their dedication to customer-centric innovation and strong partnerships.
AGC Networks is another fine example of India's leading solution integrators in enterprise communications. AGC delivers customised business solutions that help organisations accelerate revenue growth, increase market penetration, optimise operating costs and improve employee productivity by embedding communications in their business processes.
Not only does health informatics focus on the implementation and optimisation of the information systems that support clinical practice, it creates the infrastructure that connects and enables the flow of critical information to and from each of the stakeholders in a patient's care.
This has spurred a demand for professionals in health informatics in India, as well as the sub-disciplines that comprise it.
AGC Networks, Huawei and CSC are just some of the Healthcare leaders and influencers collaborating together at Next Generation Health Informatics INDIA on the 18 - 19 October 2011 at the Radisson Blu Hotel New Delhi Dwarka. For more information visit http://www.healthinformaticsindia.com
