Amrita University has unveiled a version of its state-of-the-art Amrita Healthcare Informatics Suite Software (Amrita HIS) crafted specifically for BARC (Babha Atomic Research Centre) Hospital in Mumbai.
AMRITA HIS manages all the patient details right from patient registration, admission to discharge.
“It is one integrated, seamless solution conforming to latest healthcare protocols, built on open-source technology covering entire hospital operations,” says Pradeep Achan, chief architect of Amrita HIS.
The main focus area is on the integration of clinical applications with a keen emphasis on the administrative requirement. AMRITA HIS has powerful reports and very easy to use user-interface. The system mainly allows for unified access to all organizational and patient data through one single-web interface for any authorized user.
“This is a great land mark for the successful deployment of AMRITA HIS at a prestigious institution of national importance such as BARC, and it represents a significant milestone for AMRITA. It also represents a consummation of one-of-a-kind research partnership between the Engineering and Medical schools of Amrita to deliver a flawless industry strength system in the Indian landscape,” said Dr. P. Venkat Rangan, Vice Chancellor of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.
The software was originally designed for use at AMRITA Hospital, Kochi.
