U.S.-based healthcare IT firm eClinicalWorks will invest $30 million as part of its expansion plans for the digital healthcare market in India.

The investment will focus on developing cloud-based technology infrastructure here, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

‘Digital India’ drive

These efforts coincide with the Centre’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ drive aimed at attracting global firms to invest on manufacturing in the country, it said.

eClinicalWorks has said tele health capabilities allow patients to access their doctors via mobile phones and enable them to immediately address medical concerns, regardless of location. It helps in providing medical expertise in rural areas where facilities are not available easily.

The company further said this investment would help in building a cloud-based technology infrastructure to deliver digital healthcare in the country.

“As we look to expand, India offers appealing opportunities that are in line with our vision.

Operating since 1998, eClinicalWorks has established cloud-based healthcare platform in the U.S., delivering healthcare information and technology solutions in the form of electronic patient medical records, population, health and patient engagement tools for doctors, it said.

4,300 team members globally

eClinicalWorks has more than 4,300 team members worldwide, with Indian presence at Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Bengaluru. There are about 1,15,000 doctors using its solutions, the company said.
