As a part of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ campaign, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) on Thursday launched a multi-purpose Digital Health Card to provide patients with easy access to medical care.
The card contains a micro-chip with Smart-Chip Technology which stores all information related to patient’s health. The patient can also store cash in the card and use it to pay money at any department at SGRH.
For outstation patients, it will have an added advantage of banks transfering money directly to this card.
“Fast and secured access to patient’s health information, lab results, queue management, access to the appointment scheduling of the consultants and various clinical services, patient dashboard at the consulting room and other cost benefits to the patients are the key features that would be offered in phased manner in the interest of improved patient care,” informed one of the officials.
