New Delhi, Sep 3 - The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will host the the 4th international conference and workshop on cost effective use of technology in e-healthcare here.

Minister of State for Science and Technology Jitendra Singh will inaugurate the conference.

Speaking about the agenda of the conference, M.C. Misra, Director of AIIMS said: AIIMS has been undergoing a quiet revolution over the last one year in bringing innovative and patient oriented services so as to cater to the huge number of patients who look up to AIIMS for the final word in affordable and quality healthcare.

I firmly believe that by leveraging this patient load, computerisation can bring a turnaround in patient care at AIIMS besides revolutionizing research and education activities, he said.

During the occasion the new Patient Display System (PDS) at the emergency department, live patient statistics Display (LPSD) and the interactive voice response (IVR) based appointment system for the patients at the OPD will be inaugrated.

Misra said: After the inauguration of the new system all patients will be seen only after booking the appointment at AIIMS.

This step was necessary so as to avoid queue jumping and crowding which was previously common in front of OPD rooms, said Misra.

There is a 25 percent tatkal quota for new walk in patients for each department and these patients will also be seen only after booking of current appointment, he added.
