Providence Health, a US hospital chain, opened a new facility in Hyderabad, India, on Monday, with the goal of concentrating and bolstering services such as cybersecurity and tools that assist doctors with paperwork.

The Renton, Washington-based non-profit organisation, which manages 52 hospitals in the United States, was already using its current Hyderabad location as a hub for technology, human resources, and finance.

The facility, which currently employs roughly 1,400 people, intends to partner with other hospital operators, increasing its employment to 3,500 by next year, CEO Rod Hochman told Reuters in an interview.  

"To do it all by yourself inside of your shop, even if you're a bigger health system, makes no sense at all."

"What we're saying is why wouldn't you outsource and in-source that to a company that's already (in) healthcare instead of an Accenture or somewhere else?" Hochman added.

Providence has already engaged approximately 70 workers to deliver some of these services to US healthcare firm AdventHealth, and it is in talks with more healthcare service suppliers.
