Hyderabad-based information technology services provider Mahindra Satyam has signed a partnership agreement with TechMatrix Corporation of Japan. The partnership covering ASEAN region will jointly address strategic growth areas in the healthcare market and provide cloud-based healthcare solutions.
TechMatrix subsidiary, Ichigo LLC, will provide its Teleradiology network infrastructure product line and Nobori, its cloud service for medical and healthcare information. Mahindra Satyam in-turn will host the cloud and mobile-based services in Singapore and Malaysia while providing direct sales and IT services to clients throughout ASEAN region.
As part of this partnership, Mahindra Satyam and TechMatrix will come together to invest in sales and marketing resources as-well-as software and hardware enhancement in this technology.
“The Ichigo Teleradiology network is ranked first in Japan and TechMatrix has been providing innovative healthcare solutions since 1998. Together we hold the vision that our combined experience and expertise can bring transformational solutions to healthcare within ASEAN”, Mahindra Satyam ASEAN vice president and business head, Ram Ramachandran, stated in a press release here on Tuesday.
As a first step in this partnership, Ramachandran said, Mahindra Satyam has installed “Ichigo Teleradiology iComServer” in its Singapore data center and launched activities to support initial installations. As a second step in 2013, Mahindra Satyam and TechMatrix will jointly launch the Nobori cloud healthcare services, including picture archiving and communications system (PACS), a vendor-neutral solution for medical image storage, management and retrieval.
“In addition to the technological leadership and innovation that Mahindra Satyam has in telemedicine, healthcare and cloud services, we see natural synergies between our two organizations which we believe are critical to build a lasting partnership”, TechMatrix chief executive officer, Takashi Yuri, said.
