At the medicine manufacturing location each individual package is created whereby Pharma Secure deploys its solution right at the production lines of the pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, providing manufacturers a low cost low footprint solution with a quick turnaround and with minimal line downtime.

MeghSushrut, an ERP Solution for Health Delivery is a Hospital Information Management System (HMIS) using emerging cloud computing and software. The Application architecture is designed to operate between two sites, between the Data Centre and the Intranet set up in the beneficiary hospital. Centralized Data Center is running on 24 X 7 basis and is making the services available to multiple hospitals. The connectivity between the central Data Centre and the hospital is one of the major components of the MeghSushrut architecture. The initiative starts at the registration desk; the first point of contact for any patient visiting the hospital where the Data Entry Operator (DEO) fills up the details of the patient through an online form. Thereafter, the patient is redirected to the room of their respective doctor, who gives consultation advice and prescribes medicines writing the results of the investigation on the registration card. The registration card is then scanned at the OPD Scanning Bay. This process helps the hospital in maintaining crucial data related to the treatment administered to each patient, analysis and monitoring of demographic health trends as well as in the issuing of duplicate registration cards in case of loss and it also facilitates offline entry of ICD information.
