Govt Launches GIS-enabled HMIS, Self-printing of e-CGHS Card

CGHSWith an objective to provide easy access to health services to the public, the Health and Family Welfare Ministry has launched two major digital initiatives: GIS-enabled HMIS application and the self-printing of e-CGHS cards. Union Minister while launching these initiatives stated that the Health Ministry remains committed to strengthening public health systems and providing user-friendly health services in the country.

While the GIS-enabled HMIS services will provide comprehensive data on a GIS platform on 1.6 lakh Government Health facilities spread across the country, self-printing of the e-CGHS card will provide ease and access to the beneficiaries who may find it difficult to go to the CGHS centres for renewal.

Terming these as significant and forward looking steps contributing to Digital India, Health Minister J P Nadda said, “The initiative will not only monitor the performance and quality of the health services being provided under the NHM, but will also provide effective healthcare to the rural population throughout the country”.

The GIS-enabled HMIS project has been developed with the objective of enabling the effective usage of the HMIS application, enhancing analytical capabilities of States/UTs and providing a geographical display of HMIS data using GIS. The application also has scope of incorporating map layers of roads and water bodies which will provide comprehensive information regarding health facilities and disease vulnerable areas of the country. At present, the application is available in login domain of HMIS portal. It is planned to put it in public domain in near future. Moreover, the mapping provides data only on public health facilities presently, which shall soon be expanded to cover private facilities also, the Union Minister informed.

Health Management Information System (HMIS) is a web-based monitoring system that has been put in place by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) to monitor its health programmes and provide key inputs for policy formulation and interventions. It was launched during October, 2008 with uploading of district consolidated figures. To make HMIS more robust and effective and in order to facilitate local level monitoring, “facility based reporting” was initiated since April, 2011. At present, 1.94 lakh health facilities (across all States/UTs) are uploading facility wise data on monthly basis on HMIS web portal. Data are presently being made available to various stakeholders in the form of standard & customized reports, factsheets, score- cards etc. HMIS data are widely used by the Ministry and States for policy planning, monitoring and supervision purpose.

The Union Health Minister, while launching the self-printing of the e-CGHS card, stated that this will provide ease and access to all those beneficiaries such as the pensioners who may find it difficult to go to the CGHS centres for renewal, and in the event of loss/misplacement of the card. As this can be printed from any location once the process of application based on authentic documents has been approved, this enables easy reprinting by the beneficiary himself/herself. The beneficiary can access this facility by visiting the CGHS portal at where simple steps for this have been enumerated.

    I am just watching the movie, Tender Is The Night, In the party scene at the beginning of the movie, the character Abe North immediately hit me as Cole Porter. I have looked it up but can’t find any reference to that. What’s your opinion?Thanks

    Je crois que tant Sauve que Rose seraient très très heureuses de vous accueillir le cas échéant. On pourrait transformer ça en véritable Jamblogree ! On a déjà Castor et moi dans le même hameau, c'est pas rien ! Je demanderai à R. Crumb de faire le président d'honneur. Il marchera si nous promettons de ne pas dire trop de choses sérieuses et que nous nous engageons à n'inviter que des dames nues (sous leurs vêtements). Les hommes pourront être habillés sous leurs vêtements. Je crois que Robert s'en fout un peu.

    All the clerk has to say is that after being absolutely smashed in the face he immediately felt extremely DAZED by the vicious attack and for a moment or two he genuinely thought his life was in danger.

    Moi je n’aimais pas trop avant, souvenirs surtout de ma prime jeunesse…Mais lorsque je vois mes mini-moi s’amuser comme des petits fous, courir d’un stand à l’autre me regardant avec les yeux du chat pottés pour avoir un ticket (payant) pour jouer… je me dis « autant qu’ils en profitent ». C’est leur école après-tout, ils doivent en avoir le meilleur souvenir possible.Franck | Papa Blogueur recently posted..

    Bentley,Thank you for the responses. Do you have any boats under construction with the dinette and/or the cockpit cabinet options, and any pics you could share of those configurations? Also, I have seen pics of the engine room. Where would the washer/dryer be installed? Thank you in advance.

    I would be so happy to meet Alex Perry to have the opportunity to ask him about his Sydney-Opera-House-Barbie-Dress. I am an opera singer and am longing to wear it to my next concert.Besides, I am creating my own dresses which women want to steal (or buy) from my body!

    Walking about town I have witnessed lots of relieved people, at least that’s how they seem, many more smiling faces than usual. OK I’ll admit it, mine included!Now if we can just translate this ‘just happy to be alive’ into a long-term thing, perhaps we can make a better world after all.
