Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) has launched a multi-purpose Digital Health Card to provide patients with easy access to medical care. The health card contains a micro-chip with Smart-Chip Technology which stores all information related to patient’s health.
According to Dr D S Rana, as a part of Digital India Programme we have launched SGRH Health Card – a multipurpose smart card, designed to provide patients with easy portability of their healthcare information and give the consultants faster access to their clinical data.
With this card the patients will not have to carry his films, medical reports and details when he visits the hospital. This card will be given to the treating consultant, who by inserting it in a card reader will get to know about his past medical history.
The card will also be a eWallet cash in which the patient can store cash and use it to pay money at any department at SGRH, without the need to carry physical cash. It holds an added advantage for the outstation patients as money can directly be transferred from bank to this card.
