It is just a matter of taking the first step in the right direction for the other parts to fall into place, with a variety of options accessible to healthcare organisations.
India is now increasingly moving towards advanced healthcare facilities for its people in a bid to be more developed. The national focus, funded by the government, is to increase India’s current healthcare system. The burden of the transition, however, depends on how ready it is for healthcare organisations to implement advanced technologies.
Globally, healthcare practices have seen a major change from a practise focused on medication to a strategy based on results. Though it may take a significant amount of time for India to transform healthcare into one that is results-based, the reality is that there is an enormous potential for current facilities and services to be strengthened. Indian healthcare entities should look at a three-step action plan to align themselves internationally with the appropriate instrumentality of healthcare.
Electronic Health Records:
As the first step towards modernising healthcare, India will have to go through the colossal task of migrating from paper-based records into electronic/digital health records in order to make all its health records digital. It has been witnessed in the past, that the migration of historical and legacy city land records along with government registries to electronic records is the first step to being fully digital. Today, all these transactions, thanks to that initial phase, are registered electronically.
The aim of transforming healthcare records is not only to make these records more available, but also to improve healthcare quality. EHRs help us to access the history of our health records, pass them from one caregiver to another, report new cases of treatment, lifestyle changes and various other indicators.
