Lucknow: In another step towards creating a transparent and efficient mechanism, and to manage multiple institutions seamlessly, an e-Hospital management system will be implemented in about 36 medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh.
Through an e-Hospital management system, the delivery of healthcare services will be simplified and will aid in hospital management which covers the complete treatment cycle of OPD/IPD as well as will integrate clinical, administrative, and billing/insurance activities.
The Medical Education Department has made complete preparations for the implementation of the paperless system in the State Medical Colleges, Government Institutions, Autonomous Institutions, and Autonomous State Medical Colleges.
In the first phase, the system has been implemented in about 9 medical colleges of the state. Under which it has been started in Kanpur along with medical colleges of Gorakhpur, Prayagraj, Jhansi, Meerut and Agra.
Now, preparations are in full swing to implement an e-hospital management system in 36 state medical colleges. With the implementation of this system, while on one hand the management, leadership, network, functioning and administration of the hospitals will improve, on the other hand all the information related to the patients will be recorded through a unique ID number. Pre-recording of case history and information in the hospital will bring great relief to the patients.
