SKIMS to have Online Payment System to facilitate patients

Srinagar: Director SKIMS Dr Parvaiz A Koul on Tuesday, while taking a detailed review meeting on Hospital Information System (HIS), emphasised on installation & implementation of Online Payment Gateway System at SKIMS on priority to facilitate patients.

According to a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), he said the facility will make it convenient and easy for patients and attendants to make payment through online system any time and any where using mobile phones and kiosks.

“More importantly it will decongest critical hospital service areas particularly OPD area,” he added.

He also instructed concerned officers to explore the possibility of implementing PayGo Payment Gateway of Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, as used by AIIMS New Delhi.

He also directed to establish fully developed Electronic Health Records System without delay to facilitate quick transfer of patient information as well as maintaining confidentiality.

He said that it will prevent duplication of services and give instant access to patient information which would go a long way in helping quality research and settling medico legal issues, insurance claims and other issues.

Koul also insisted to make full use of IT System for quick Patient Care delivery which remains the top priority of SKIMS. (KNS)
