Views: 601

The Chandigarh Administration has launched a telemedicine project to provide critical healthcare advice and right treatment, thereby eliminating unnecessary travelling of patients for high quality medical services. The project would enhance communication between Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) and Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) of Chandigarh for better patient management and health services. Under the project, a state-of-art telemedicine facility will be available at GMCH. Realising the shortage of specialists in the Health Department not only in Chandigarh, but also all over the country, the GMCH would start providing the best care to the patients in this region through telemedicine. The Chandigarh Administration will expand this network and interconnect all medical facilities under it for seamless flow of patient related information for better implementation of national and local healthcare projects. It would also result in faster dissemination of knowledge from centres of excellence to lesser hospitals, which would ultimately result in overall improvement in healthcare delivery. This project will be a stepping stone which in future would lead to a more comprehensive all inclusive networks for providing excellent healthcare to people of this region.
