Digital health venture KareXpert has built a new cloud-based platform with built-in electronic health records (EHR) that will enable hospitals in India to go paperless. 

The platform is AI-ready and can perform specialty functions to support doctors, nurses and patients on mobile and desktop devices, including CPOE (computerized physician order entry) and MAR (Medication administration request), telehealth, pharmacy management, and a COVID-19 Outbreak Management Platform. 

KareXpert comes with a pre-integrated data lake, where the hospital's AI data model of choice can be used, enabling it to research by having a single data view of all anonymised patient records. It is hoped this will help with identifying disease patterns and inventing new clinical and treatment procedures, while keeping patient data safe. 

It has also been designed to assist hospitals with multiple locations, with an integrated EHR per patient in real-time, and supports pre and post-surgery workflows. 

Nidhi Jain, CEO and founder of KareXpert Technologies, said of the technology: "KareXpert's NDHM ready, AI-ready, and highly secure EMR/EHR solution has brought a new wave of innovations. It is providing doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers a means for high-quality patient care at affordable prices. The hospital will become future-ready for AI/ML technologies using KareXpert's Healthcare Data Lake." 

India's first fully paperless hospital was opened in 2019 by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modhi. Medical staff at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Medical Science and Research (SVPIMSR), a hi-tech government hospital that offers free treatment to people on low incomes, carry tablets to access information. 

The digital integration of EHR meets the aims of the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) launched by the Government of India, which seeks to improve access to healthcare by digitising the sector. 

KareXpert, based in Gurugram, south west of New Delhi, previously partnered with the Indian Government to provide advanced telemedicine services to communities in Uttarakhand, a rural location in the Himalayan region where people are forced to travel long distances to access medical care.
