Shillong, Jul 2: On the occasion of six years of Digital India on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with eight persons in the country who benefitted from the Digital India Programme launched on July 1 2015.
One of the persons with whom the Prime Minister interacted was Wandamaphi Syiemlieh from Shillong.
She works with a Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) Company called S10 Healthcare Solutions which is based in Dhankheti, Shillong.
Syiemlieh initially worked for this company at Chennai, however, since her organisation received incentives from the North East BPO Scheme under Digital India Program they could open a branch in Shillong.
As a result she was able to return Shillong and work from the comfort of her hometown.
Her interaction with the Prime Minister is found in this webcast link https://pmindiawebcast.nic.in/.
Syiemlieh works as a Medical Scribe (called Physician’s Angel in their terminology). She is assigned to a Doctor in the United States of America.
Her job is to help the Doctor in the United States to fill their charts and other mandatory documents.
So while the Doctor examines a patient in the US, she simultaneously documents the transaction from Shillong and fills in the charts on a real-time basis.
Her online document is simultaneously visible to the Doctor on his computer screen in the United States. Her effective assistance enables the Doctor to complete the mandatory documentation and necessary prescriptions effortlessly and on time.
The NE BPO Scheme of the government of India will help boost the KPO presence in Meghalaya and other States of the region.
This will also attract more KPO Companies to open branches in Shillong which will immensely benefit the talented youths of the State.
The Information Technology & Communications Department government of Meghalaya is also setting up the Shillong Tech Park which can accommodate these KPO Companies in Shillong. It has a capacity of about 1500 seats.
