Manorama Infosolutions Pvt. Ltd. (MIPL) India, a true healthcare digital transformation company, has been awarded a prestigious country automation project from the Ministry of Health (MoH), the Republic of Seychelles. While taking things to the next level in clinical excellence, MIPL is working closely with The Healthcare Agency—an initiative by the Ministry of Health, Seychelles—to provide digital solutions for the government-run hospitals in Seychelles. This will be immensely beneficial to the citizens, who rely on various primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare systems in the country.

A one-of-a-kind mega project in East Africa, funded by Exim Bank, India; implementing MIPL’s Lifeline International Suite. The project holds considerable relevance, as it shall deliver the implementation of Health Information Management System (HIMS) at various hospitals, clinics, and wellness centers, among others for a total of 20 such healthcare facilities under the MoH, Seychelles province. The HIS will be utilized throughout the entire government healthcare service. This consists of 16 health centres spread over 3 islands and 1 main hospital (300 beds) with 6 annexes.

There are immense benefits to the HIS system, some of these include: easy retrieval of information access, increased operations productivity, via avoiding duplicate data entry, quick registration to avoid long queue, Master Patient Index, improved efficiency and accuracy of coding and billing, better revenue management, improved quality of healthcare, improved clinical management (diagnosis and treatment), reduced medical errors, improved patient outcomes, improved patient satisfaction, and better decision-making for stakeholders.

The project cycle is in compliance with CMMI ML3 and is scheduled to be fully-operational by the end of 2021. With this newest addition to its portfolio, MIPL has further strengthened its international footprint, which already includes countries from APAC, the Middle East and Africa, among others.

Speaking on the development, Ashvini Danigond, Founder & CEO of Manorama Infosolutions Pvt. Ltd. said, “We, at MIPL, always aspire to create simple yet effective technological solutions to build robust healthcare infrastructure. We would like to thank the Ministry of Health, the Republic of Seychelles for giving us the opportunity to be a part of their health-tech endeavor and provide quality healthcare solutions for all. By establishing an integrated HIS (Health Information System), the Ministry of Health (MoH) is making the necessary commitment that is expected to lead to improvements in health care quality, the efficiency of delivery and access, while also moving the health care system closer to harmonization with relevant international standards.”

As per the statistical information provided by the MoH, Seychelles relating to the healthcare system, the average number of out-patients registered per year is 5,00,000, the average number of in-patients registered per year is 14,000. Similarly, the average number of patients attending casualty per year is 30,000, while the average number of investigations undertaken per year stands at 6,60,000. With Manorama Infosolutions Health Information Systems (HIS), Seychelles healthcare structure will have an added advantage to manage their healthcare services seamlessly.

A representative from MoH, Republic of Seychelles, said, “Our focus has been to introduce integration and innovation while aiming to improve health and social care for all. We want the healthcare system to play a greater role, delivering the best possible care and introduce frameworks that remain truly integrated. We wished to introduce a system in healthcare that is more accountable and responsive to the healthcare providers that work in it and the people that use it. In this regard, MIPL has already set a proven track record by undertaking and successfully implementing Country Automation projects in various countries. This remained one of the key motivating factors for us to collaborate with the India-based digital healthcare IT Company. As we look towards the future, our healthcare system will continue to remain central to the national wellbeing and prosperity in the years to come.”

What makes the project distinguished in innovation is the fact that MIPL has been trusted with the complete digitization of Patient Management System and Clinical Care System. Apart from this, there are many other functionalities in all the 20 hospitals, including primary, secondary and tertiary care hospitals that are being operated under the Ministry.

As a mega project that holds the potential to take things to the next level while timely improving the efficiency of the overall system through digitization of the process, MIPL’s Lifeline International Suite—a customized and tailored Hospital Information Management Solution (HIMS)—will interface with Hospital Information System (HIS) application in the National Population Database (NPD), Treasury Information System, Government HRMS, Laboratory Equipment, ASYCUDA world system, and Digital signature.

MIPL has already begun the process of implementing the solution and it is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
