Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) dispensaries in the city, seven in number, are to get fully computerized. This step is expected to provide prompt and better services to one lakh beneficiaries of the scheme, as it will enable the dispensaries to be linked to the 26 city hospitals attached to CGHS. The way to University of Pune has a dispensary, in that location, which has already been made computerized, told Dr S B Nadoni, Additional Director, CGHS. The dispensaries at Mukundnagar, Lullanagar, Camp, Mangalwar Peth and Khadki, as also the one near the RTO will be computerized in phases.
As soon as the process is completed, the procedure to admit any patient to any of these hospitals will also become simpler, as all they would need will be a permission letter. Delhi HQ will have all the updated reports of the patients, along with other details will be accessible at Delhi HQ and other centers, once the computerisation process is over. The HQ will subsequently be furnished with details of the need for medicines at various dispensaries.
