The Indus Hospital
The Indus Hospital

    
It was back in 1986 when Karachi was hit by a bomb blast that the city faced the first emergency of its kind, causing the civil hospitals to be inundated with the injured in critical condition and on the brink of death. The hospital was unable to cope with the victims bought in, causing many doctors and hospital staff much distress. This event pushed health Industry professionals to band together and establish the PWA, a first in philanthropy in the health sector. The success of their first project encouraged these same individuals to come together again in 2005 and found a complete general Hospital. [1] THE INDUS HOSPITAL.

The Indus Hospital


The Indus Hospital’s founding was inspired by the teachings of Islam. To give and to help others, to do all we can, and Allah would be our helper and protector; guiding us, aiding us and giving us triumph. The healthcare sector in Pakistan was always asking for such an endeavor, an institution that could commit to the task of improving the nation’s wellbeing and do so unobstructed. In doing so we have done our part and helped our fellow man to live a better life. This gives us back in turn, the prayers, the well wishes and the hopes of the destitute fulfilled; a reward in itself promising even more in turn from our Cherisher and Creator.
The Hospital is now a banner to rally around for all the people of the nation and the world at large, an effort that enjoins good. We promise to remain steadfast to our call, to provide quality care free of cost to all those in need. We intend to make and keep premium health care a basic human right and not a privilege. The Indus Hospital’s success thus far has been through a passionate team of individuals within and out of the institution giving their all. We have a means, through this hospital, before us to give the best to everyone; together we hope to reach that end of seeing everyone enjoy the gift of a healthy life. We invite all of you to join us in reaching across Pakistan, raising the standards of living through-out the country. [2] PHILOSOPHY of TIH

INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY

  1. The Indus Hospital has the distinction of being  Pakistan’s first paperless hospital.
  2. From patient registration and appointments to complete medical records, all information is entered directly into a highly advanced Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) that was developed by our core team of Health Informatics professionals, doctors and surgeons.
  3. Apart from patient information, administrative processes are also recorded electronically on The Indus Hospital HMIS to ensure that the hospital runs on a completely paper free environment. New employees who join our team are given a thorough training on effective utilization of the system in their core areas of work so that the hospital continues to derive maximum leverage from technology.
  4. The software which has also been deployed by The Indus Hospital in NICVD hospitals on the government’s request, is critical for our success as it ensures preservation of important data and enables us to manage systems and processes within the hospital efficiently and accurately. [3] INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY
