Canadian health informatics player Pulsus plans to add 2,000 jobs in India through expansion of health informatics regional language translation activities in its India facilities.
As per a company statement, the new jobs will be created by setting up a new facility in Chhattisgarh to provide access to healthcare and scientific knowledge in native Indian languages.
The company’s healthcare and scientific information centres at the Chennai SEZ and in Gurugram in Haryana are already operational and employ 1,000 persons.
The firm now wants to grow into a 3,500-employee outfit in India from the present 1,500 working out of the Technology Hub in Hyderabad and other two centers. This move is also part of its strategy to tap the growing importance for scientific content translation in Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Gujarati, and Bengali.
The company will soon send its proposal to the Chhattisgarh government to set up its facility. With the support and speedy approvals from state government and the Software Technology Parks of India, Pulsus expects to commercialize the facility in 12 months.
