Taking a giant leap to provide healthcare facilities such as telemedicine and other digital healthcare platforms in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar launched E-Sanjeevani, Ashwini portal, the Wonder-App, and the Referral Transport Tracking system.
“Ensuring better healthcare facility to the people of the state is our prime concern and we have been working on it since came into power in the state. The technology-based health services started here today will go a long way in providing good health care facilities to the people,” Kumar said.
“Acting on the findings of a survey which showed that poor families in Bihar have to spend a large amount of their hard-earned money on health-related problems, the state government has now started converting PHCs into community health centres with a capacity of 30 beds each,” he added.
According to Kumar, the new technology-based medical services are being made available and hospital buildings have been renovated along with many new ones built. Under the ‘Seven Resolves Part-II’ mission for making ‘Aatmanirbhar Bihar’, all health centres will be linked with sub-divisional and district hospitals by providing all medical facilities.
