Suvarna Technosoft (Suvarna), a software vendor that caters to the niche demands of the healthcare sector, was established to bring future ready solutions and experiences to the healthcare market. This 17 year old establishment currently has a base of over 180 employees. They are affiliated with over 270 hospitals and Top 10 Diagnostic Centers in india across the country. Suvarna is also a solution provider to the 500+ Diagnostic Centers in India and equips these centers with state- of-the-art infrastructure to cater to a high-demand market. They also possess the expertize to boost digitization, enabling these centers to manage a prolific online presence. This journey towards efficient digitization propelled the need for collaboration with Kodak Alaris, to achieve a high-degree of precision and accuracy. This partnership was formed on the basis of a long-standing and durable relationship to bolster the efficacy of scanning deployments within this highly-critical sector.
Suvarna provides hospitals with an end to- end solution portfolio such as Hospital Management System (HMS), Document Management System (DMS) and Lab Information Management System (LIMS).
Some of their key objectives include:
The Medical Records Department staff verify every document for each patient and on approval, all these documents are then scanned and stored in a centralized database
It is mandatory for healthcare institutions like hospitals, diagnostic centers and labs to maintain patient records. It is therefore crucial for them to be adequately enabled on this front, with better record management tools, digitization and accurate classification of patient details.
Every healthcare institution requires the following features to enhance its scanning capabilities:
For most healthcare departments, the current process involves updating and monitoring a patient’s records during the doctor’s daily visit through a paper-based approach, which reduces the productivity of physicians considerably.
Archiving of these paper-based patient records is not only laborious, but the retrieval process is also time consuming. This methodology results in ineffective communication within the hospital and between staff-physicians and caregivers.
Digitization of the records procedure, from the originating point – for in-patient or out-patient facilities, to various hospital departments – enables a more seamless flow of information storage and retrieval. For instance, the use of scanners from Kodak Alaris provided the medical department with powerful image processing techniques to accelerate the flow of information, and achieve almost real-time access to patient records.
These digitization processes also helped the healthcare institution adhere to regulatory requirements in terms of paper size, output file formats and document quality. They have also helped the institution improve the retrieval timeframe, which helps streamline the patient care process. Furthermore, it has helped them obtain the necessary accreditation from pertinent medical agencies.
The use of scanners from Kodak Alaris aided Suvarna to fulfill its expectations from a digital enablement standpoint; thus showcasing how healthcare providers can not only benefit from digitizing their paper-based document process, but more importantly enable digital transformation of key business processes in the industry.
Suvarna’s implementation of an efficient information management system and communication technology within the diagnostics center helped improved patient care and enhanced operational efficiency significantly, while also reducing costs. After deploying Kodak Alaris’ Information Management Solution, the following key results were observed:
