Who Knew? Microsoft Owes Amalga to Medical Tourism Industry

Microsoft was so impressed with the hospital's software system, which was developed by a company called Global Care Solutions, that it bought the company. It now sells the software almost everywhere, outside of North America, as the Amalga Hospital Information System (HIS).

Another reason to look for HIT innovation outside the US...

Who knew Microsoft's Amalga HIS system (enterprise EHR/EMRs in the hospital setting) was originally designed by Global Care Solutions and first rolled out at medical tourism hotspot Bumrungrad in Thailand?
