600 health centres to be linked to e-Upchar

Chandigarh, February 19

Health Minister Anil Vij has said in order to provide good health facilities to rural people, about 600 health centres, including primary health centres, would be connected to the e-Upchar system.

In the review meeting of the department on Friday, Vij told the officers concerned to soon develop a mobile app to help connect with this system so that any person could take the doctor's appointment while sitting at home. He said it should also be ensured that the test reports of patients are sent online or through SMS. "Besides, records of medicines and tests advised to patients by the doctor should also be made available online."

Vij said at present, the facility was available at 56 health centres, including 22 district hospitals, eight sub-district hospitals, 11 CHCs, 10 PHCs, one AYUSH college and three medical colleges. — TNS
