Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu while chairing a meeting with the officials of the Health Department directed to initiate Health Information Management System (HIMS) in a time bound manner enabling the doctors to fetch the complete medical history of the patients from the cloud based server. In the initial phase, the HIMS would be rolled out in 56 Hospitals of the State.

“The HIMS would prove to be a milestone in providing seamless treatment facilities to the patients as there will be no need to carry physical copies of prescription and medical test with them,” stated the Chief Minister. The doctors would get all the requisite information on the click of a button by just entering mobile number of the patient. So far we have achieved a target of preparing 73 percent digital health cards in the State.

The Government was incorporating the cutting edge technology in the health institutions to provide best healthcare facilities to the people of the State at their door steps, he remarked. With a motive to reach out to the underprivileged sections of the society and providing them with quality health care facilities the Government intends to offer high end health care services in all the medical colleges of the State as well. The ‘Adarsh Swasthya Sansthans’ were being set up in all the 68 assembly constituencies of the State.

The Government had also deputed six specialist doctors in 35 such institutions (Sansthans) functioning in the State. Besides, the remaining 33 such Sansthans will be soon equipped with specialist doctors, assured the Chief Minister. Sukhu also reviewed the status of establishing robotic surgery facilities in three medical colleges in the State viz. IGMC Shimla, Atal Institute of Medical Super Specialties Chamiyana (Shimla) and Tanda Medical College.

He directed the department to accelerate the process of establishing such facilities so that the public can benefit at the earliest. “It is important to digitize and modernize the healthcare infrastructure to provide quality services,” he stated. Chief Parliamentary Secretary Sanjay Awasthy, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Bharat Khera, Secretary Health M Sudha Devi, Mission Director National Health Mission Priyanka Verma and Director Health Services Dr. Gopal Beri were also present in the meeting.
