As we gradually move towards a digitally enabled healthcare system, tools like Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are bound to become inevitable. EMR is the central component of the health IT infrastructure maintaining digital health records and is shared among multiple healthcare providers and agencies. When used effectively, it can immensely improve patient care across different parts of the country. In the age of artificial intelligence, patient information can be used to bring predictability and actionable insights to a variety of sectors using data analytics, including healthcare – which is one of the industries where critical decision making and certainty in action is of paramount importance.
While most of the health-tech platforms present in India today are centred around patients, HealthPlix is the only healthcare start-up that is designed to empower doctors. It is currently the largest EMR player in the Indian market with the widest coverage across geographies and specialties. Over 16 million patients across India have been treated through the HealthPlix EMR platform by doctors practicing across 15+ specialties with a doctor’s base and network spanned across 370+ cities in India.
