Hospital Management Information System (HMIS)

Indian Railways rolls out Hospital Management Information System (HMIS)

Indian Railways rolls out Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) over 156 Health facilities across Indian Railways !

Reading this PIB announcement today.

This announcement has triggered the interest of many and has seen conversations floating around the same .Seen “Appreciations” and also “WATCH OUT Govt Healthcare Initiatives” kind of statements.

Govts, when decide to take control of Healthcare delivery & make right investments, will throw real stiff competition to Pvt Healthcare. Country requires this balancing act in managing communities health.

Govts have not invested into creating Quality Healthcare Infra for decades and pandemic has shown the gaps to communities about the flaws in both Govt and Pvt Hcare Infra in the country.

All 3 As – pillars of Healthcare Delivery, came down crashing or crumbled.

Its hightime Govt Hcare institutions embrace digital healthcare by making right investments to improve Patient experience.

HIS or HIMS has been there in pvt healthcare for more than 2 decades and has not really taken off in a big way.Industry has seen very average utilization rates of around 30% or even less. Reasons for low utilization rates are too many but the key factor is lack of #Upskilling of Health Workers which is critical to make technology usage becomes a culture in any organisation.

Healthcare businesses have to focus in bringing alignment between People & Technologies to streamline their Processes, through massive people upskilling initiatives.

Railways investing into HMIS is a good move. What is needed is strengthening basic IT infra in all hospitals, providing hardware to people (which often doesn’t happen) and massive on the job training for the next 3-4 years to make this initiative very successful. Identifying Change Agents to lead and drive this Change internally is also very important.

User acceptance for digital health was also not there all these years and now users will accept hybrid forms of delivery in many businesses, healthcare being no exception.

With NDHM rollout on the cards, seamless integration of all these tech initiatives into NDHM’S platform become critical.

Railways have created their own HMIS platform.

Read the announcement below from PIB for more information.

World Accreditation Day 2021

Accreditation Day Greetings to All Stakeholders

World Accreditation Day 2021

Theme – Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

09 June 2021 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2021), a global initiative established by IAF and ILAC to promote the value of accreditation. This year’s theme is Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

The SDGs are at the core of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a broad and ambitious plan of action with the overarching objective of leaving no one behind. Accreditation, in collaboration with other quality infrastructure institutions, provides the technical foundations that are critical to the functioning of developed and developing societies. It enables industrial development, trade competitiveness in global markets, efficient use of natural and human resources, food safety, and health and environmental protection.

Global Businesses are getting into implementing Sustainable Business Solutions, following Sustainable Business Practices. ISO has released many Management Systems Standards in the recent years for businesses to learn, implement internally.

These are linked to CSR Reporting, ESG Reporting and Sustainability Reporting for Listed companies and top 1000 companies with high market capitalisation in stock exchange in India.

Sustainability Accounting Norms are already released globally for reporting in organisations Accounting Audit Reports.

Recently we saw some Global Investors making announcements on their Investment priorities in India where the Investors said their investment decisions will be linked to the sustainable business practices adopted by businesses.

Businesses of all sizes – MSMEs or large scale orgns need to LEARN, UNDERSTAND, IMPLEMENT these solutions internally to ensure the Health and Wellbeing of Communities which will become the Global Priority now.

Its hightime that Accounting Professionals , Management Systems Consultants join hands together to deliver good Sustainable Business Practices, Solutions to businesses .

Value Added , in its 30 years of Consulting journey, had seen the saga of Certifications, Accreditations and impact made by these market place recognition programs on businesses for their business growth. We have facilitated , guided more than 500 + organisations to implement multiple Management Systems Certifications, Accreditation Programs fro many sectors.

It would be interesting to see the rise and Sustainable Business Practices at the market place from now.

We shall be organising series of Knowledge Sessions on these Standards and how these get integrated into the business practices of organisations.

Happy Accreditation Day Celebrations to Industry and Stakeholders !

IAF and ILAC have published a joint WAD 2021 statement by the IAF and ILAC Chairs, a brochure and a poster:

In addition, three videos with the themes of People, Planet and Prosperity will be released on the IAF-ILAC Youtube channel in mid-May. These three pillars group the SDGs according to common goals and are reflective of publications from UNIDOOECD and UNDP.

The Public Sector Assurance and Business Benefits websites, which contain case studies, research and supporting materials demonstrating the benefits and value of accreditation, also now feature an option for searching by SDG. 

While the COVID-19 pandemic may again disrupt physical WAD events, we encourage everyone to celebrate with us online using the hashtag #WAD2021 and to contact your local accreditation body for further details on local media and online seminars and programs they may be organising.

Customers Quality Systems – Supply Chain getting Trained

Orientation Program for IVD Manufacturers about Various Quality Systems Programs implemented by their User Industry – Hospitals, Med Labs , Other Healthcare Organisations

Supply Chain is showing interest to learn about various Quality Systems implemented by their Customers

Customers Quality Systems – Supply Chain getting Trained

Got a call from an IVD Manufacturer last week expressing interest to get his team trained on various Quality Management Systems followed by healthcare organisations.

I first thought I heard it wrong, I thought he was seeking training for his team on Med Dev QMS. When I asked the question, he said NO and his question is about getting his team members understand a little about various QMS Programs implemented by their customers like NABL, NABH , CAP, QAI Programs.

I was a little surprised and asked him for the reason for choosing a topic like this, though I could quickly guess where he would be heading to. He has mentioned that they are supplying their products to multiple categories of healthcare organisations . Each one comes up with some Certification, Accreditation program that they are implementing. Having implemented Med Dev QMS & Product Certification Programs in house, he felt that its appropriate for his team to acquire some basic knowledge about their Customers Quality Systems Programs and ensuring that as Vendors to the respective healthcare orgns, they would prefer to provide necessary inputs, information that are needed by these Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) during their Quality journey.

This is what is emerging across the globe. Many businesses / sectors are ensuring that their Supply Chain is also in sync with their Quality Systems Journey. When a Mfrer or a Service Provider delivers a Product or a Service to end user / customer, as a finished good, he/she has to doubly ensure that his supply chain also maintains high Quality Standards. It becomes imperative for the Vendors, Suppliers , Stakeholders who are part of the supply chain to be in sync, in alignment with the Quality Systems adopted by their customers.

Similarly, businesses that are seeking support from suppliers, should also make an effort to understand the Quality Systems – be it Product or Systems Certifications, implemented by the Suppliers in their respective organisations. This is the fundamental requirement of Vendor Evaluation in any business. Understanding the Suppliers Quality Systems Programs Matters for Businesses too ! Many Regulated Business Sectors, across the globe, have initiated this exercise of bringing the Supply Chain under some Quality Standards, Systems Programs. Automotive Sector was the 1st sector to introduce this almost 2 decades ago. Many other sectors which are under Regulatory Control are slowly introducing this concept.

This manufacturers/suppliers, being the suppliers to many healthcare organisations, come under the supplier category to these businesses. Healthcare Sector being regulated (be it Products or Services) in the country now, Supplier Quality Compliance will become a norm sooner or later.

We have customised a 3 day program for the IVD Mfrer’s team comprising of :
– Technical Team
– Sales Team
– Customer Support Team
– Management Team

The program was designed in such a manner to provide them a bird’s eye view on various Healthcare Certification, Accreditation Programs that are currently available in India for healthcare businesses to choose.

We have also designed a session on Minimum Standards that are adopted in the country as Regulatory spec which addresses basic QMS to be implemented by Med Labs in the country.

It was interesting session fielding questions from IVD Mfrers about Quality Systems Programs in HCOs.

  • Some interesting questions posed by them :
  • For a start up lab, Is there a bare minimum period required to get the accreditation, if all the criteria is met?
  • Is there any minimal number of parameters in scope of testing for applying certification ?
  • What is the difference betn Certification & Accreditation Program when most of the quality mgmt systems clauses are similar ?
  • Is it compulsory to do ILC ? Frequency ?
  • When there are multiple Certification , Accreditation Programs available for Med Labs, how to differentiate and choose a relevant, appropriate program for HCO

Matured Participants and the Quality of the interactions was highly invigorating .

Were actually surprised when they were asking questions related to :
– Voluntary withdrawal from Accreditations :
– Suspensions criteria
– Eligibility of the HCOs to reapply
– Normal scenarios , reasons for such actions taken by Accreditation Bodies
– Any penalties , punishments for non compliances

Some screen shots from the session :

3 days of orientation program came to a close today. Bird’s eye view of all National , International Certification, Accreditation Programs , Minimum Standards – Regulatory requirements were covered. Program was well received and appreciated by the participants.

Informative, customised content, pretty detailed, well explained, looking forward to detailed sessions

Some feedback received by the end of the session.

Moving forward, Quality Systems Implementation Programs become more inclusive in nature in near future. Businesses will ensure Quality of their Supply Chain and Suppliers will show more interest to learn about their Customers Quality Systems Implementation Programs. More inclusive it becomes, supply chain gets strengthened and end users will be assured of better Quality & Safe Products and Services.
