Recognising the use of technology to facilitate a digitally enabled health care service, eChannelling was bestowed with the coveted Cfi.co award by Capital Finance International – UK, recently.
The award presented for ‘Setting the best healthcare standard as ICT service provider for Sri Lanka reflects eChannelling’s robust dominance in the healthcare sector, where through technology, eChanelling has bridged the gap between hospitals, doctors and patients. This has improved the overall effectiveness and efficiency of hospitals, services and increased convenience as people don’t have to wait in long queues to get an appointment.
Commenting on the recognition, Nalin Perera, Director/CEO of eChannelling said, “We are proud and privileged to have won this award. It is indeed a significant milestone for us to know that our teams’ efforts, hard work, and dedication are being recognised and appreciated on a global scale. We devised eChannelling with a vision to create a platform for every Sri Lankan to access and obtain the best health services digitally, such as to book your doctor, obtain video consultation, drug delivery and many more. With this we have transformed the healthcare service offerings in the country by bridging the gap between service providers and the public through technology and improving effectiveness and efficiency in a user-friendly way. The sheer number of health care partners who have come onboard to eChannelling’s platform reflects its success, catering to millions of Sri Lankans residing island wide, thousands living abroad and as well as tourists. We are proud to have digitally empowered the society to take it towards our vision to build an info-com and knowledge-rich society.”
In bestowing this award, Cfi.co evaluated the role that eChannelling plays in the transformation of the health care sector in Si Lanka and the manner in which it has revolutionised the industry, noting that eChannelling’s streamlined digital platform has empowered patients to select the healthcare provider that best suits their needs via phone, web or app for added convenience. The panel of judges also took into consideration the uniqueness of eChannelling’s platform, ingenuity in pioneering digital healthcare, consistent service excellence and the value addition this has brought to people’s lives by enhancing productivity and modernising health care. Another reason for nominating eChannelling was the fact that it has developed a unique information system for a leading hospital in Sri Lanka, which is now being adopted by other healthcare institutions and govt. hospitals as well.
