BANGALORE, INDIA: Major US healthcare IT firm Allscripts is expanding its India operations to deliver healthcare information solutions to hospitals and physicians for improving patient care, the company said on Thursday.

"We are expanding our solutions' development centres in Bangalore, Pune and Baroda to create innovative solutions for healthcare professionals to improve patient care," Allscripts vice-president Cliff Meltzer said in a statement here.


In addition, the company will hire about 300 development professionals this year at lateral, mid and entry levels to spur growth and enhance operational efficiency.

"Our game plan is to build a world-class solutions development organisation by focusing on right people, key solutions and best practices to deliver industry-leading solutions capabilities, performance and innovation," Meltzer said.

By hosting key clients in India, the company wants healthcare experts to see first-hand how it develops solutions they use.
