Cambio Healthcare Systems in Sri Lanka brings much deserved acclaim
to the country, by being responsible for designing and developing
Enterprise Healthcare Solutions for some of the leading hospitals in
When asked about Cambio’s key brand, Sanjeewa Senarath who heads the
Software Quality Assurance Division at Cambio Healthcare Systems in Sri
Lanka explained, that Cambio’s main product is Cambio COSMIC, a
patient-centered electronic health record system, that offers solutions
within all healthcare sectors for large health organizations and
provides a high degree of patient safety and security to both healthcare
personnel and patients.
It is currently licensed to over 95,000 users in General and
University hospitals, primary care clinics and specialist units in
Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.”
Offering a model which will run simultaneously with existing systems,
Cambio provides operational support to increase efficiencies of
hospitals by integrating with the existing systems while offering the
flexibility of customization to suite individual customer demands.
Senarath also touched on the adequacy and accuracy of this product by
stating that the company has created a mechanism for planned and process
oriented care, by identifying specific care requirements, defining aims,
planning and documenting the result of the treatments as well as
evaluating treatments in relation to aims.
Information in the care plan is divided into four categories,
pre-admission, status, care plan and final summery.
He added that “Thanks to this categorization , it is easy to gain an
overview of a patient’s care requirements and plan treatment accordingly
in line with treatments already carried out.” Hospital staff can insert
any information of a patient and this information can be seen and
accessed by all relevant staff.
It also has a ‘Report Sheet’, a functionality that can be used for
patients being cared for in wards.
“Here the hospital staff can document all expected and unexpected
events, measures and results,” Senarath said. Senarath also pointed out
that, Cambio COSMIC has a special component that supports emergency care
, where patients in acute or life threatening stages could be quickly
It provides several advantages such as giving an in depth
patient-overview that is automatically updated overtime, supports
patient prioritization based on the condition of the patient and also
look at the resource ability and monitor the current operational
workload at the emergency unit.
This greatly assists and enables off-site care professionals to
understand the needs of each patient and keep an eye on them, as well as
offer the right care at the right time and also assists to have the
right operative team to be booked in advance including, doctors, nurses
and all other relevant staff members.
Each stage of the operation could also be monitored through this
He also shed light on the “COSMIC Theatre Management” which is a
system that can support the entire theatre process.
It provides extensive support for waiting lists, scheduling, theatre
records, anesthetic information, operation activities, operation live
view and follow-up. In other words, it is a comprehensive support
service for the entire theatre process for different aspects of care and
for the personnel handling them, without compromising on the precision
of the information such as, from the planning stage of the pre-operation
to the real time progress of the actual operation and post operative
Cambio COSMIC also has a system called ‘COSMIC Birth’ which is
specially designed for anyone working in the Antenatal Clinic, Delivery
and Maternity Departments. With ‘COSMIC Birth’, the hospital could
monitor the mother throughout the entire pregnancy from the first visit
to the antenatal clinic to the follow-up visit after the birth .
Sanjeewa also shared his thoughts on how the product could be useful
in Sri Lanka “We have both state owned and private hospitals here and
with the increase of the population and the number of patients along
with the growing difficulty in providing significant care to individual
patients, there is also an increasing amount of money that is spent on
On top of all this, patients nowadays expect a higher quality and
rapid service on what they receive and there is a huge amount of
pressure on both the government and the owners of these privately owned
health institutes and hospitals.
The policy of the present government is also aiming to increase the
quality and quantity of services provided in the healthcare sector.
The type of systems that we provide would be a huge benefit to
increase the productivity, quality, accuracy and transparency of the
services provided to the community”, he concluded.
