Sharing his experience as a medical administrator during Digital Senate Series, Lucknow, Dr Rajesh Harshvardhan said that many a time-poor person travels from far-flung to visit premier medical institutes like AIIMS and SGPGI but once they reached there, they found that there is no bed available.
He enquires, can’t the government create a platform where anybody can see the status of availability of bed or medicine at the level of the state capitol to district hospitals. He said that such a platform will help people in a long way.
He also emphasised that there is need to create uniform and integratable health record management system so that the challenge of health record reconciliation for poor people who are not managing their records could be addressed.
He informed that at SGPGI, from registration to discharge to follow up, the help of technology is being taken. “Even in clinical, we are using technology to customized patient medicine. It has helped us in individual physiology to make medicine customised,” he said.
