The  Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to link all its hospitals and healthcare centres through a computerised network, in a move to boost its e-governance plan.

Such that medical records of patients treated at any civic hospital will thus be available at the click of a mouse. In addition, patients will not have to wait in long queues for registration when referred from one public hospital to another.

“An ID will be allotted to a patient during his/her first-timeadmission to BMC hospitals. The records of his diagnosis and treatment will be stored on this ID. When he/she visits the same hospital the next time or is referred to another one, he/she will only have give the ID number and his/her medical history will appear on the computer screen,'' said a high-ranking civic official.

BMC currently has four teaching hospitals, five specialty hospitals, 16 peripheral hospitals, 24 maternity homes, 162 dispensaries and 168 health posts. Through the proposed e-system, it will be possible to aggregate the information from all these hospitals to a centralised database. This computerised database will then make it easy to compute data about diseases and facilitate better coordination between hospitals. Epidemics
