Thiruvananthapuram-based Healthcare Media Pvt Ltd (HMP) has become the first pureplay health care company to obtain CMM Level 3 of the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. KPMG Executive Director V Kannan handed over the certificate to Joe Mathew of HMP at a simple function here at Technopark recently. HMP officials termed it as a major achievement for an IT company both at the national and global level. Quality Registrars of KPMG carried out this assessment for the Software Capability Maturity Model
