Taking the e-Governance initiative at the forefront, the Government of Delhi has decided to digitise all government hospitals in the Indian capital state. The move would save hospital officials time in handling papers and hard copy of medical records. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said recently that besides reducing paper work, the effort would help admission of patients in hospitals. “All government hospitals will soon be online so that availability of beds could be known to facilitate admission of patients. This would also help in providing better health facilities to the citizens of Delhi,” Dikshit said. Speaking at a function to felicitate doctors and paramedical staffs, the Chief Minister said that Delhi is the health capital of the country and people from all the other states and even abroad come here for expert advice and treatment. She appreciated the dedicated, committed and professional efforts of doctors and said the government doctors are equally capable as private doctors. The chief minister gave the State Award to at least 69 doctors and paramedical staff, reports IANS.
