Integrated Online Portal for
AIIMS Trauma Centre

JPN Apex Trauma centre, AIIMS

Highlights

  • Live (real-time) statistics on the total number of patients at JPNATC available on the website
  • It is for the first time in the world that such a project has been conceptualised and implemented

The project was conceptualised to set a benchmark for accountability and transparency in public funded healthcare in India. As a small initial step, statistics on the number of patients coming to a hospital, as well as number of patients being admitted and discharged be available online publicly in a real time manner or as close to real-time as possible were required. No other healthcare facility anywhere has allowed itself open to scrutiny in such a global manner where real-time statistics on patient flow as well performance audits of each department are available for all to analyse, compare and criticise.

The objective was to internally audit the clinical performance of each department and also has this audit available online publicly so that it could be compared with other hospitals in India and abroad. The centre wanted to have live statistics on the number of patients coming to a hospital, as well as number of patients being admitted/discharged be available online publicly. This would make the overall working of a hospital transparent to the public.
