Online PR News – 03-July-2013 – New Delhi – New Delhi - 02 July, 2013 |HealthFore Technologies Limited (Formerly known as Religare Technologies Limited) has been selected to implement a Tele-Radiology Solution across Assam.
HealthFore’s innovative solutions will provide radiologists almost instant access to X-rays and CT Scans available at any of the 11 district Regional Diagnostic Centers. A scan taken in any of the districts would be transmitted to the Data Center in Guwahati. The innovative solution will provide physicians with the ability to get expert diagnostic advice from radiologists in Guwahati on a 24x7 basis. Thus these diagnostic reports will have been available from a panel of experts and in time for the treating physicians to save human lives.
HealthFore will provide the required infrastructure, connectivity as well as manpower to implement this solution including trained radiologists. The solution will use HealthFore’s path-breaking Magnum Imaging PACS for Radiology Imaging, storage, encryption and compression. In doing this HealthFore will be among the first IT companies to use Doctors and Specialists with its products and technology experts to provide an end to end solution.
This project being implemented for NRHM Assam seeks to “address the critical shortage of human resources for health and clinical services in the area”. Further key areas are highlighted by two issues viz. “lack of adequate staff for providing interpretative coverage and lack of speciality expertise”. To some extent these problems can be overcome by ICT systems to draw upon the expertise of distantly located radiologists.
Post an intensive evaluation process HealthFore was selected to provide an integrated solution to commission and operate Tele-Radiology centres for 5 years in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pankaj Vaish, CEO, HealthFore said, “Tele-Radiology is an example of how innovative use of technology can bridge the gap between demand for a medical service and the availability of specialised skills. This project will bring world-class healthcare solutions to the doorsteps of people in rural and remote locations in the state of Assam where medical facilities and specialists are not available. This project reiterates our commitment to use TECHNOLOGY to build INNOVATIVE Solutions and Services to make quality HealthCare available and affordable.”
