VESALIUS Version 9 Goes Cloud Computing

Mar 2012 – novaHEALTH announces the release of VESALIUS 9.0 which allows customers to deploy it as a cloud computing solution.

According to IDC, spending on IT cloud services would grow fourfold, reaching US$4.6 billion by 2014. Correspondingly, software built around SaaS service composition and delivery is expected to enjoy the same growth.

By 2012, nearly 85% of net-new software firms coming to market will be built around; by 2014, about 65% of new products from established ISVs will be delivered as SaaS services. SaaS-derived revenue is expected to account for nearly 26% of net new growth in the software market in 2014.

Releasing a version of VESALIUS that is cloud-ready is part of Nova’s strategy of delivering of HIS-computing as a service over the internet or VPN rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a metered service.

Indian healthcare giant, Fortis Healthcare will be pioneering the implementation of VESALIUS Cloud in the Novena Colorectal Centre and Adam Road Hospital, both located in Singapore.

Mr. Vikram Khanna, Vice-President of IT Projects of Fortis Healthcare said, “As Fortis pursues its goal of being a leading integrated healthcare player that provides consistent and high quality care to our patients, we need an HIS that provides flexibility, scalability and rapid deployment capability. Nova’s VESALIUS, with its Cloud ready solution fits neatly into Fortis’ strategy of laying a solid IT foundation with industry standard integration capabilities to realize our vision.”

Lai Teik Kin, CEO of novaHEALTH said “This is a significant step forward in our strategy to ultimately deliver quality hospital management systems as a service. By sharing resources and minimizing capital outlay for hardware, we believe it is more cost-efficient for hospitals to upgrade to VESALIUS.”
