HCL provides hospital information systems to Narayana Hrudalaya
Bangalore: HCL Infosystems, India's premier hardware, services and ICT systems integration and distribution company has been chosen as a strategic technology partner by Narayana Hrudayalaya (NH) Hospitals. The tie up is the result of a rigorous evaluation and a painstaking proof of concept exercise which took almost a year to come to fruition. HCL blu Enterprise Cloud's Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution is being deployed across 22 NH hospitals and has been already rolled out in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Jamshedpur and Jaipur. The other centers are in the process of being hooked up to the central system. The partnership has been signed for a period of 5 years.
This unique implementation by HCL Infosystems is also the first of its kind in India where the Hospital Information Systems (HIS) application for a hospital is completely deployed on the cloud. The solution would reduce capital and operational expenditures for Narayana Hrudayalaya and will enable the hospital to provide faster access to healthcare for its patients such as facilitating faster patient registrations. The implementation will also enable hospital staff to quickly complete their administrative tasks thereby freeing their time to provide healthcare. The high performance cloud computing services are backed by a strong infrastructure backbone and HCL's national support network to ensure business continuity. The HCL IaaS includes components from Cisco, EMC, Net App and VMware.
Elaborating on the deployment, Mr Harsh Chitale, CEO, HCL Infosystems said, "We would like to thank Narayana Hrudayalaya for deciding to partner with us in their transformational journey. Cloud computing has come to define the way businesses function today and keeping in line with the present times we are committed to providing the best in class enterprise cloud services. Our cloud solutions are highly customized as per the needs of organizations and focuses on addressing business needs of clients. We bring the best available technologies from different partners to achieve an optimal solution for our clients."
On the occasion Dr Devi Shetty, founder, Narayana Hrudayalaya said, "We are delighted to partner with HCL Infosystems who is not only a long standing ICT company in India but also amongst leading cloud enterprise solution providers today. With this deployment we look to maximize our efficiency and scale up our services. We are sure that our HIS on cloud will be a path breaking initiative in the Indian Healthcare Industry"
HCL Infosystem's IaaS solution would allow NH to provide and manage the infrastructure required to support its systems in the most flexible manner. It would cater to needs like virtual servers, cloud storage network infrastructure components, Cloud security stack and configuration services and also provide 24X7 support and system monitoring. The Cloud Solution for NH will be scalable and will ensure business continuity.
