The co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Augmedix, Pelu Tran who was in the city to interact with some of the educational institutes in life sciences, said that under Obamacare initiative every doctor in US is required to maintain electronic medical records of the patients.
Managing Director of IDS Infotech, Partap Aggarwal said that IDS would be recruiting nearly 500 medical scribes immediately to cater to the growing requirement in USA healthcare industry. We are looking for fresh graduates from any of the life sciences streams with English speaking skills to join this growing job opportunity, he said.
Augmedix, the first Google Glass startup, uses technology platform for US doctors who while interacting with the patient are not only getting the medical history and conversation converted into digital records at the backend, but are also able to access past history in real time, and freeing the doctors for more productive time with patients.
IDS Infotech, one of the first companies to enter into IT-enabled services in the region, had been in the business of providing medical transcription, but the changed health scenario in US has provided another opportunity to give life-science students and paramedics to work with the US doctors, Partap Aggarwal said.
IDS Infotech organized an interactive session with the academicians and aspirants from life sciences background including paramedic, pharmaceuticals, fresh MBBS to showcase the growing opportunity in this upcoming field.
Sri Daya Singh, Vice President Operations of Augmedix, who had been involved with IDS Infotech right from the early 90s, said that IDS had been a key partner right from the beginning and we look forward to exponential expansion of this project.
