New realities are placing pressures
on the healthcare industry, and how patient care is
delivered. Rising hospital management costs, an aging
population, a shortage of healthcare workers, challenges
in accessing services, timely availability of information,
issues of safety and quality, and rising consumerism
are some of the facts of today’s healthcare system.
The industry has reached a point of chasm, where they
need to decide how services could be delivered more
effectively to reduce costs, improve quality, and extend
reach. The critical questions facing the industry today
include: how can we effectively manage hospitals and
provide enhanced services without placing additional
burden on a system already pushed to its limits; how
can we provide care in a cost-efficient manner at a
time when healthcare spending is rising; and how do
we most efficiently use our resources and support front-line
staff in order to reduce medical errors and enhance
quality of care.
These are just a few questions facing
the industry. It looks bleak, but there’s hope.
There are new information technologies available to
help. Information technologies that enable immediate,
information-rich communications and provide easy-to-use
collaborative tools are increasingly becoming a vital
part of today’s healthcare.
Quintegra, as a healthcare IT solutions
partner, is committed to preparing hospitals to meet
future challenges - and to secure their attractiveness
to patients, referral sources, and staff by means of
long-term concepts. Leveraging upon a dedicated healthcare
practice group, Quintegra has developed a next-generation
Hospital Management & Information System (HMIS)
that is powerful, flexible and easy to use and has been
designed & developed to deliver real conceivable
benefits to hospitals. The HMIS has been conceived by
a blend of seasoned professionals with rich and relevant
experience in healthcare industry. The system incorporates
the best healthcare practices and is designed to deliver
key tangible benefits to clients across the globe.
Quintegra’s HMIS is a revolutionary
solution with end-to-end features for simplifying hospital
management – all at a cost which provides the
fastest ROI. Access to the right information and the
automation of complex tasks & workflow is the key
focus of the HMIS, enabling freeing the staff to spend
more time on caring for patients and extending the reach
A MIS for a hospital would require
being very precise and must result in operational cost
reduction, process improvement and efficient management.
We have developed a HMIS solution which is very accurate
in its approach and suits all environments including
large, medium or small hospitals.
The HMIS is designed to cover a wide
range of hospital administration and management processes.
It is an integrated client server application. It runs
on all standard hardware platforms and can be easily
customized to suit the requirements and reflect the
priorities of a hospital management team.
The HMIS provides the benefits of streamlined
operations, enhanced administration and control, improved
response to patient care, cost control, and improved
profitability. Quintegra believes that every hospital
is unique in terms of its requirements and priorities.
Hence, flexibility has been built into the HMIS to allow
easy customization. The HMIS features unparalleled flexibility
& scalability, comprehensive report types, easy
customization, intuitive visuals and interactive graphics
that simplify complex data, dashboards-supported quality
initiatives and comprehensive drill-down capabilities.
With technology expertise garnered
for over a decade and specialists drawn from diverse
fields of medicine, we help hospitals provide better
managed care through the state-of-the-art HMIS solution.
The HMIS solution has been designed
as a three-tier application built on the model-view-controller
architecture. The interfaces to all external actors
on the system are a part of the view tier. This includes
the graphical user interfaces to the application, interfaces
to equipment, interfaces to external software applications
and also APIs. The HMIS addresses both HIPAA & HL7
The HMIS modules have been designed
according to three categories – core modules,
supporting modules and enterprise-enabling modules.
These modules can further be customized according to
The HMIS provides an effective solution to hospitals
that plan to reduce the costs of administrative and
clinical transactions, and at the same time, provide
better service to their consumers. The benefits of the

doctors and hospital staff with the decision support
system that they require for delivering patient
care, which is comparable to global standards.
By enabling an automated and intelligent flow of patient
information, the HMIS enables hospitals and doctors
to better serve their patients. Additionally, the HMIS
provides a host of direct benefits such as easier patient
record management, reduced paperwork, faster information
flow between various departments, enhanced availability
of timely and accurate information, reduced length of
stay, reduced test requests, greater organizational
flexibility, reliable and timely information, easier
resource management, minimal inventory levels, reduced
wastage, reduced waiting time at the counters for patients
and reduced registration time for patients. The indirect
benefit would be an improved image of the hospital and
increased competitive advantage. The HMIS optimizes
the resources to be deployed and helps in prioritizing
the developmental activities of the hospital.
Quintegra’s HMIS not only provides
an opportunity to the hospital to enhance their patient
care but can also increase the profitability of the
organization. The Return on Investment (ROI) coupled
with an enhanced image of the hospital act as drivers
for healthcare providers to invest in the HMIS that
will keep their patients satisfied.
