Online medical record vault portal is the first launch of a software product from a company based in the city in the last two years and hope more such products are launched from the companies here, president of Visakhapatnam Information Technology Association Peter Schneeberger said.
Speaking at a function organised by VITA to launch the portal by GVMC Chief Medical Officer Ramana Murthy here on Thursday, Mr. Schneeberger said it was indeed remarkable especially when most IT companies in the city are into service. Going for a product requires tremendous effort in terms of planning and implementation, he added congratulating Sajix Incorporation and its vice-president (Business Development) Arun Kharidehal.
Noting that security of personal data is a key issue, Mr. Schneeberger urged the company to take steps to secure the data and also suggested that it be integrated with the hospital records. Mr. Kharidehal explained that the product complies with the security protocols specified by the US Government.
