New Delhi: With an aim of improving patient care and operational efficiency at its health centres, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has approached the National Informatics Centre (NIC) for configuration of e-hospital portal in its Health Care Units.

NIC suggested to upload the proposed e-hospital software for NDMC on its cloud services, which will happen first time in India.

"E-hospital shall enable NDMC to deliver health care services in more effective and efficient way. This will help NDMC to achieve the ultimate organizational goal of a satisfied and improved provider and recipient of health care.

"Further, it will also help administrators in NDMC area to exercise an enhanced monitoring and control over the functioning of hospitals and dispensaries under its jurisdiction," NDMC spokesperson Jagjivan Bakshi said.

The civic body chairman Naresh Kumar along with other officials had attended a video conferencing organized by NIC and deliberated upon different modules and configuration required in the software with its experts in India.

"We plans to complete the configuration of e-hospital portal by October. In the first phase, NDMC plans to implement Hospital Information System at Charak Palika Hospital-Moti Bagh, Poly Clinic-Baird Lane and Dental Clinic-Dharam Marg," Bakshi said.

The modules available on e-hospital portals are Patient Registration, Clinics, Emergency Registration, Billing and Accounts, Laboratory (LIS), Radiology and Imaging (RIS), PACS Interface, Blood Bank Management, IPD(ADT), OT Management, Touch Screen Kiosk interface, Pharmacy Management, Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Telemedicine Suite, Birth and Death Registration, Care Provision, Stores and Inventory, Dietary Services, Laundry Services and Personnel Management.
