ChallengeMax Healthcare wanted to transform care delivery through implementing an integrated electronic medical record system to deliver evidence based medical care to their patients.
SolutionMax Healthcare received a comprehensive clinical, financial and administrative solution from Dell. Dell deployed the open source WorldVistA Electronic Health Record (EHR), integrated with Max Healthcare’s home-grown Hospital Information System (HIS), and also migrated the IT infrastructure and systems to Dell’s state-of-the-art data center. Dell used their ADOPTS methodology for Clinical Transformation to ensure clinician buy-in to the new solution, thereby ensuring a high level of clinical adoption post implementation.
