Apollo Hospitals working with TCS for patient ID number

Views: 617

Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd is working on a project that would give each of its patients a Universal Hospital Identification Number (UHIN). The number is like a password that will give access to the entire medical records of the patient. Anybody who walks into any Apollo outfit would be given this number. “His medical data will be stored for life,” Dr Pratap Reddy, Chairman, AHEL, told a press conference here on Wednesday. Any doctor anywhere in the world will be able to access the patient’s medical history using that number, he said. Dr Reddy said that Tata Consultancy Services is helping Apollo on this project. He said the project would be launched soon, “definitely not beyond December.” He said that Apollo was also working on another project that would enable the use of the mobile phone to secure medical help
