NexTech is honored to have had the opportunity to play a part in this medical mission; it was truly a remarkable experience.

NexTech, the leader in fully integrated Electronic Medical Records, Practice Management, and Marketing Software was honored to partake in a recent medical mission trip to Nepal alongside a team from The London Vision Clinic. The London Vision Clinic introduced the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology to NexTech in late 2011. Intrigued by the work that LVC did in conjunction with the Himalayan Cataract Project and the cureblindness.org team, NexTech donated an Ophthalmology specific NexTech EMR system to the clinic.

In January 2012, Christina Majeed, VP of Business Development, New Products & Technologies accompanied the LVC team on the successful medical mission trip to Kathmandu. The week was spent training the physicians and staff to use NexTech EMR, shadowing doctors and observing many surgeries. NexTech’s Ophthalmology EMR software is now being used in the front office, back office, and in the operating room at the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology.

Located in Kathmandu, the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology is the clinic run by the Nepal Eye Program, a community based, non-profit NGO. Beyond the treatment facility where patients are seen at TIO, there is also a rural outreach unit, an eye bank for cornea harvesting, and a manufacturing facility for intraocular lenses. The Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology also conducts extensive research and has an MD training program for ophthalmology residents.

“NexTech is honored to have had the opportunity to play a part in this medical mission; it was truly a remarkable experience. In addition, it was rewarding to see our Ophthalmology specific EMR be put to use in such an outstanding way. We look forward to continuing to make a difference in healthcare throughout the world by working with organizations like London Vision Clinic and cureblindness.org,” said Christina M. Majeed, Vice President Business Development, New Products, and Technologies for NexTech.
