In the early years with the usage of computers in the hospital, the hospital management was primarily involved in creating a good Medical Records system not only for themselves but also as per the Government mandate. The “MRD File” system proved to be an effective tool to gather the patient data in individual patient files that seemed easy for the hospitals to manage. However, the sheer volume of paper works posed a major challenge for the MRD team and maintenance has become a big issue as the years progress.
Health card system has proved to overcome the problem of registering the patient on every individual encounter to the hospital. It serves as an efficient tool over all the counters of the hospital to ease the work of the end users and hence to reduce the patient waiting time. Another advanced terminology that is spoken in recent times is the “Smart Card” system within hospitals. Patients desire to use such a system to enjoy the benefits of cashless transactions, and the system for sure aligns itself
towards “Digital India”.
