Odisha govt launches OeHMIS to provide hassle free health services

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today launched Health and Family Welfare Department's Odisha e-Hospital Management Information System (OeHMIS) to provide efficient and hassle free health services to the public.

The OeHMIS was launched with technical support of Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Noida.

The OeHMIS will be piloted at Capital Hospital, Bhubaneswar and SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack and later on will be extended to other health institutions. For implementation of project, an estimated cost of Rs 1416.82 lakh has been allocated under State budget, said Patnaik.

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 paper work 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 web portal or mobile app.
