Kameda Infologics: Ensuring Efficiency in Healthcare

CIO Vendor Machines will replace 80 percent of doctors in a healthcare future. I’d much rather have a good machine learning system diagnose my disease than the average doctor,” says Vinod Khosla, a famous Indian American billionaire businessman. This statement reflects the profound impact of technology on the future healthcare; though this would still take time (decades) to become common practice. The growing need to reduce healthcare costs, demand for minimally invasive surgery procedures and regulatory policies to ensure safety, security and confidentiality of patient information have led to the increased adoption of technology in the healthcare. AI based healthcare systems can process huge amount of data more effectively than even a decade ago and it helps to reduce errors in a diagnostic and treatment process. “We are already enabling some of our clients, using some of our technologies like Clinical Decision Support system to help care providers reduce medical errors and improve decision making,” says Dr. Ataat Khan, Managing Director, Kameda Infologics.

However, the healthcare institutions should make strategic decisions with regard to the technology platform solutions and infrastructure that enable them to provide a consistent and better quality services in timely and costeffective manner.

KI partnered with Dr.Toshitada Kameda and the software development company Kameda Health Informatics (KHI) based in Tokyo, Japan. Dr.Kameda is a pioneer in HIT (Healthcare Information Technology) industry and had developed completely integrated hospital information system that has been paperless since 1995. Over 3000 patients are seen daily in the outpatients without waiting. KI is using the best practices, systems and quality procedures for its software development. The software development team works with the objective of providing significant value for the investment made by the customer.

YASASII is KI’s flagship Hospital Information Software (HIS) product; it is HiMSS Stage 7 maturity solution and is also Meaningful Use 1 and 2 certified by Drummonds/CCHIT in USA. One of the key components for adoption of HIS is Usability; the system should be easy to use, otherwise the users will not use it and hence there will be challenges of change management. Secondly, it should be Integrated as too many different silos of information make the system cumbersome and redundant. Thirdly, it should be Interoperable (ability to communicate with other systems). Fourthly, it should be Flexible, to be able to adapt to the changing needs of processes and workflows quickly without having to change the hard code but rather to manage it with configurations and last but not the least it should be Competitive and affordable as a good HIS is a necessity and not a luxury anymore.

Kameda Infologics is a company with a mission to “Save lives, Improve the quality of life and Reduce cost through effective use of information technology.” The idea is to move information and not the people, as when a patient comes to a healthcare facility, he/she is vulnerable, sick, tired and needs urgent attention and care, and unfortunately we make them run around the hospital to fulfil our processes; the patient does not come to a
hospital for entertainment or fun. Hence, we need to improve our systems, processes and workflows and use technology as a tool and an enabler in improving the experience of delivering effective and efficient care.

“On one hand we want to transform the patient experience by providing integrated and patient centric technology solutions to clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and insurance companies. On the other we want the users, managers, regulators to enable better visualization of reliable information to make timely decisions with optimal resources. Convert information into insights,”says Dr. Ataat Khan.
