Can you help us know your tough times in the initial years of the company?
Founded in 2002, JVS’ journey was fraught with backbreaking challenges initially. We had a tough time to bridge the gap between healthcare and IT. But with consistent efforts, we have carved a niche in the Healthcare IT industry by overcoming the challenges faced in the initial few years. Also with the help of the Internet and advance technology, JVS has quickly expanded business worldwide over the Internet and now have more than 10,000 physicians using its flagship software SoftClinic in 35 countries.
How digital adoption has made you more competent? Give us an outline on company’s success so far.
Digital adoption has become a significant accelerator to the growth of healthcare market. With various E-health initiatives being taken at government level, the market for healthcare IT is growing at 26% CAGR. With 15 years of proven excellence, JVS today has become one of the leading companies in the market of digital health. The company is growing rapidly and expanding its business worldwide by connecting patients with physicians through e-consultation.
Technology has played an important role in our growth; there is no second thought to it. With the help of remote desktop access, we have been able to implement software in war prone countries like Somalia, Palestine and Afghanistan. It gives us a great satisfaction that we helped large population in the medical field through digital healthcare delivery system.
Shed some light on JVS Technologies service offerings and also enlighten us about how your flagship offering ‘SoftClinic’ benefits your client.
Our vast portfolio of Intelligent Medical Software’s plays an important role by enabling healthcare providers to gather, organize, analyze and manage health data of patients and financial data for healthcare industry, which ultimately supports in better decision-making.

What make JVS Technologies great to work with or for?
The first thing, which makes us different from other IT companies, is ability of provide stress free work environment. The company strongly believes in hiring people with right attitude. For a product based IT company, innovation is the key to success and at JVS, we keep encouraging team to think out of the box, look for customers pain area and keep working towards making life easy for our customers.
What was the biggest challenge you & your company faced in shaping JVS Technologies?
The biggest challenge for us was the un-regularized market hampering the growth of the Healthcare IT market in India. Presently, worldwide 90% of Healthcare IT spending is in the US, which is highly regulated and well developed market. It took us 15 years to scale from first customer to 1800 plus customers. But in the last couple of years, the growth has accelerated and by 2020 we will double our customer base.
Secondly, the challenge we faced was with the mindset of IT services in Indian market. Being a product centric company, we were walking on the lonely path in the country where 99% of the IT companies are making good money by offering the IT services. The complete IT workforce was trained to provide IT services and we had to re-train our team members to think on product line where more of their brain was required rather than following the instructions like in other IT services business.
Also, few years back, there was a time when no investors were keen to invest their money on IT product companies. I am glad that the situation in the Indian IT market has radically changed in recent years. Thanks to the Digital India initiatives by the Government, now more product centric companies are coming up and are being funded by investors and venture capital funds.
Where do you see ‘JVS’ in a couple of years from now?
Presently, we are competently working on artificial intelligence (AI) to make the software smart enough to decrease the physicians work load and help them in decision making which will reduce instances of medical errors. However, for days ahead in business, we are planning to expand more on e-consultation with patient apps and doctor’s portal to make healthcare available for everyone with smartphones.
On the expansion front, we are currently expanding our business in South East Asia and going to enter in US market very soon with Meaningful use compliant EMR software.
