In a high-level review meeting for the healthcare system in Delhi on November 11, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal directed all the healthcare officials to ensure the implementation of Health Information Management System (HIMS) and e-health cards in all the hospitals run by the Delhi government. The CM asked for the complete implementation of the technology-based solution by August 2021.
As reported by Times of India, CM Kejriwal said, “It is our duty to ensure that there is no inconvenience to the people of Delhi. This management system should be able to provide all healthcare facilities to the people.” Every individual will be issued a and e-card which will then be integrated into the HIMS and they all will be able to claim benefits of government healthcare services, he added.
Once the systems come in place, the national capital will become the only city in the country to have a cloud-based health management system. The cloud-based system will integrate services like hospital administration, planning & budgeting, services for patients, healthcare delivery, backend processes, and more.
