The Health IT industry in India is dominated by a combination of small local shops and large players. The market is still somewhat fragmented, where new players are altering the way of business each day. Every new, organized company that enters the healthcare space comes with massive marketing spend, aggressive sales, and low pricing. EMR, telemedicine, and paperless hospitals are the present mantras. However, few players have the experience of dealing with the complexity of healthcare deployments.

An Experienced Leader Spearheading NextGen
NextGen is spear headed by Dr. Mallika Kapur Singh, who took over as the CEO in 2011. She embodies the best of both worlds in healthcare management, as a medical doctor with an M.B.A. from ISB Hyderabad. Having started her career at Apollo Hospital Delhi, as Manager-Operations, she is well equipped with the functioning of the healthcare setup.

She believes in the continuous innovation to stay ahead of the competition. She also trusts that happy customers speak for themselves, and ensures that this ethos permeates into NextGen’s culture. She is a health enthusiast, and an avid runner, with many in the company espousing the same ethos.
