Small and mid size hospitals today are under tremendous pressure – Too much patient load, not enough resources and a host of information technology issues. They are now looking for ways to make their lives easier without compromising on patient care. MetahOS Healthcare Operating System – Designed by doctors for doctors aims to do exactly that! Today’s healthcare system is heavily dependent on IT and the clinical staff have little say in the way their medical practice runs. It is not uncommon to see dedicated specialist clinicians having to struggle with basic computer administration, software maintenance and internet connectivity. This puts a huge strain on them in their day job, which is already stressful by itself. Smaller hospitals spend most of their revenue on expensive proprietary systems that don’t scale well.
Healthcare is an evolving sector
The middle class population is moving towards mid-sized cities with better lifestyle factors like in India region. This gives rise to demand for scalable technology solutions which can be used across the healthcare verticals providing efficiencies and standardisation at regional levels. Having said that, we have launched a Healthcare operating system which will provide a platform for small & mid sized hospitals and providers to adopt and scale up their operations effectively.
In the past few years there has been an increase in the number of hospitals owned by Clinicians and Doctors. This is really good for Healthcare Industry as it has given control in the hands of the people who actually take care of patients on a daily basis. The downside to this trend is that these small and medium size hospitals lack infrastructure, technology and resources to run a hospital effectively. Now MetahOS is addressing this issue by making state of art healthcare operating system available to every clinician across India with a monthly subscription.
What is needed
The small and mid size hospitals need a convenient and simple way to manage their healthcare team, patients, assets all in one place. Many hospitals use paper workflows which result in huge losses of revenue and business opportunities.
At m16labs, we’re excited to announce the launch of our Early Access Program for Meta hOS (Healthcare Operating System). We believe the future of healthcare is digital and cloud connected – that every patient should have a 360 degree view of his or her own health information and clinicians should have the tools they need to deliver safe, high quality, coordinated care.
