The company has installed the Charak hospital software in over 10 Indian states with hospitals ranging from 5 beds to 1700 beds, from 120 year hospitals to pre-launch hospitals, from single specialty tertiary care hospital to secondary care multispecialty hospital, from medical colleges to charity hospitals, from corporate chains to stand alone facilities, from Bangalore to Ahmedabad to Jaipur to Patna to Kolkata to Cuttack to Vijaywada. Such a rich mix of hospitals has significantly contributed in significantly improving the hospital software in incorporating all the nuances of the Indian hospital processes.
Asclepius Consulting takes pride in its core Electronic Medical Record (EMR) modules, which form the backbone of its hospital software solution. The EMR modules are unique in the Indian healthcare software industry ?with significantly high usage both by the doctors as well as nurses. While it retains the clinical intelligence relevant to the hospital senior doctors, it has been designed to be simple enough for the hospital nurses to manage. The EMR captures the entire patient medical information necessary for a medical software, right from OPD to post discharge, including history, examination, diagnosis notes, ICD codes, OT notes, progress notes, ICU charts, Bed head tickets, Order details, medication administration records, radiology images etc. ?all of which consolidate to generate a pre-populated discharge summary. Such consolidated EMR allows for a patient visit wise analysis ?thereby making the medical software much more useful.
The EMR (Electronic Medical Record) modules build the cornerstone to the unique clinical information system (CIS) modules, one of the most comprehensive clinical solutions in the Indian healthcare software space. The CIS modules are increasingly adopted by progressive hospitals to bring intelligence in the healthcare software solution ?thereby managing generic elements like drug interactions, dosage calculators, clinical protocols, care plans/ pathways, decision support and specific clinical guidelines.
Further the CIS modules enhance the healthcare software by incorporating specialty specific elements like growth charts (pediatrics), vaccination reminders, EDD reminders (obstetrics), patient education, cancer staging (oncology), chemotherapy regime (oncology) etc. The hospital software is enhanced by providing integration to suitable medical devices in the lab and radiology as well as bed side devices. Increased integration with stand alone software like PACS, bed side devices, DICOM Devices etc. allow for higher medical software usage and seamless patient care.
The entire hospital management software is built on a strong backbone of administrative software ?which covers the end-to-end hospital processes including hospital billing, thus resulting in a completely paperless environment. Over 100 administrative modules cover the entire patient flow –even while the patient is at home and even days after discharge. The Hospital Information Systems covers all the core elements of RADT, hospital billing, material, pharmacy, lab, radiology, scheduling, appointments, queue management, task lists, doctor management, purchases, cashless insurance, regulatory compliance, quality audits, maintenance, housekeeping, laundry, waste management, customer relationship management etc.
The hospital software seamlessly integrates with standalone third party software for non-patient processes like accounting (Tally integration, SAP integration) and human resources (Payroll integration).
