Srishti Software PACS IT with immense Health Potential
Bangalore-based Srishti Software, a leading provider of Healthcare Information Management System (HIMS), which received the Innovative Company of the Year Award from the President APJ Abdul Kalam in 2005, has earned another feather in its cap.
It has recently announced the successful implementation of Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) with HDTV production facility in the President's Estate Clinic (PEC), the family wing of Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi.
Using the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), Srishti Software has linked the President's Estate Clinic with CARE Hospital in Hyderabad, the military-run RR Hospital in Delhi and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). PACS helps to capture, store, distribute, and then display medical images. This eliminates the need to manually file, retrieve or transport film jackets or other media items. PACS has the ability to deliver timely and efficient access to images, interpretations and related data and breaks down the physical and time barriers associated with traditional film based retrieval, distribution and display.
With the integration of all these hospitals with the President's Estate Clinic, the entire medical records of the President's Estate Clinic will now be visible to the specialists of all these three hospitals, which will facilitate them to give their expert opinions without delay. Moreover, according to the CEO of Srishti Software Ajay Kumar Sharma, although the entire implementation would have cost around Rs 40 lakh, he did it for approximately Rs 10 lakh for Rashtrapati Bhavan. The reason? The immense prestige associated with the project.
“We are pleased that we were able to work closely with the President's Estate Clinic and implement PACS”, said Ajay Shankar Sharma, CEO, Srishti Software.
