Reportedly, a budget provision of INR 7134.90 Lakh has been allocated for this purpose, and the first instalment, amounting to INR 188.44 Lakh, has already been disbursed to the hospitals.
The UP government has set its foot to implement the e-office system with the digitisation of all records starting with five hospitals in Uttar Pradesh.
The five hospitals include Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences, King George's Medical University, Kalyan Singh Super speciality Cancer Institute and Government Medical College, Kanpur, are in the process of enabling the e-office system in the initial phase.
Reportedly, a budget provision of INR 7134.90 Lakh has been allocated for this purpose, and the first instalment, amounting to INR 188.44 Lakh, has already been disbursed to the hospitals. The executing agency, UP Electronics Corporation, has been directed to expedite the implementation.
This initiative aims to promote accountable, effective, and transparent operations, making day-to-day hospital functions more efficient. Tasks like searching for files and documents will require less time, ensuring greater transparency and reducing the chances of files going missing.
Sharing his views, Deputy CM Brajesh Pathak stated, "The e-office system will be implemented in five hospitals in Uttar Pradesh. The primary goal is to digitise all letters, documents and files within these hospitals. Implementation has already begun in five hospitals across the state. If the pilot program proves successful, the system will be expanded to other medical institutions. This initiative aims to promote accountable, effective, and transparent operations, making day-to-day hospital functions more efficient."
He further explained that introducing the e-office system in five medical institutions within the state, similar to its implementation in the secretariat, is intended to enhance transparency.
While the e-office system has been implemented in various government departments across India, including Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Jammu & Kashmir; however, healthcare organisations in these and other states are also transitioning to digital systems like e-office.
The e-office system is part of a broader effort by the Indian government to digitise and streamline administrative processes, enhancing transparency and efficiency.
We reported that the UP Government allocated funds to RMLIMS Neuroscience Centre to build modular operation theatres and network facilities. The newly constructed theatre will be equipped with advanced technologies that minimise the risk of infection and are crucial for patient safety. Further, these theatres can be easily modified or expanded to accommodate new technologies or changes in surgical procedures.
