Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am
We keep on hearing that India is an Information Technology powerhouse; Indian doctors are extremely technology savvy; and that Indians in general are very clever. Yet, no Indian company so far has developed a program to help Indian doctors take better care of their patients.
Fortunately, this has now changed thanks to the efforts of Girish Mohata, a bright entrepreneur who has developed and released a medical practice management software designed for Indian doctors , called EasyClinic.
I requested Girish to write about EasyClinic - and here's his guest entry.
" We have spent over 3 years in designing and developing Easy Clinic to seamlessly fit with an Indian doctor’s workflow. Most clinical software focuses around better patient care as the primary objective. We consider that to be a by-product. Easy Clinic focuses on the doctor. It is designed to assist the doctor and automatically leads to delivery of better patient care by the doctor. This makes a huge difference in the adoption and usability of Easy Clinic. It enables a doctor to maintain electronic medical records and manage his practice better without being slowed down as a result of using a computer program.
Each aspect of a doctor’s workflow has been thoroughly researched and there are many customisation options in Easy Clinic. For example , ordering investigations and prescribing drugs can be done in less than 10 seconds; clinical notes can be written quickly using self defined shortcuts; and bills to patients can be recorded with a single click .
The drugs database in Easy Clinic has been licensed through CIMS India and is updated quarterly. This provides the doctor with the latest drug information at the click of a mouse. It also reduces medical errors by automatically warning about drug interactions and allergies
Practice management features such as accounting have been designed to suit a doctor rather than an accountant. They are extremely simple and intuitive. For example a doctor can bill a patient with a single click and record expenses using simple voucher entries. Easy Clinic automatically generates their day book, form 3C and other financial reports.
Easy Clinic records and presents data intelligently which enables informed decision making; automates routine tasks; provides prompts on clinical activities ; and provides quick hassle-free accounting , thus making the doctor’s day much more organised . The doctor will be able to see a substantial improvement in the management of patient medical records ; and will be able to run the practice more efficiently as a business. Patients will also be much happier, as a result of the sense of professionalism EasyClinic provides to the practice ."
