Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday launched Odisha e-Hospital Management Information System (OeHMIS) to provide efficient and hassle-free health services to the public.
The OeHMIS was launched with the technical support of Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Noida.
OeHMIS will be piloted at Capital Hospital, Bhubaneswar and SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack. This initiative will later be extended to other health institutions.
For the implementation of the project, an estimated cost of Rs 1416.82 lakh has been allocated under state budget, said Patnaik.
The Chief Minister said that the project will be completed within two years.
OeHMIS will provide a computerized platform for online recording of clinical parameters of patients and reporting of performance criteria of hospitals.
It will improve efficiency and reduce paperwork through automation of processes such as diagnostic reports, prescription details and advice given by different specialists.
It will promote rational prescription of medicines and will ease the process of prescription audit.
Under this system, patients can be registered online and can view and download their individual Electronic Health Records at their doorstep through the web portal or mobile app.
