Cards will be distributed after door to door verification
All services of patient care such as hospital administration, budgeting and planning, supply chain management, back end service and processes will be brought under this system. E-health cards will be issued through the system and will be available online for access. Door to door verification will be done and physical cards will be distributed. The entire system will be based on digital and cloud. This will help the people of Delhi to get all information under one roof and help in emergency cases.
Proposed Activities for e-Health Cards – Under the e-Health Card project, all residents of Delhi will be issued QR Code based e-Health Cards based on Voter ID and Population Registry. Through which demographic and basic clinical information of each patient can be obtained. All characters will be mapped to the entire family through e-health cards for health plans and programs. Integration will be done with Delhi HISS for seamless information exchange.

After physical verification, physical cards with QR codes will be distributed to each person. Also, provision will be made to issue modified or duplicate cards at the request of the people. There will be a call center for the centralized health helpline – a centralized call center will be established at two levels to implement this scheme. In the first level, call center operators will receive calls and messages from people. Logging the CRM will evaluate the case and resolve it and inform the available healthcare staff concerned. The operator will give the caller relevant information and finally his report will be made.
At the same time, in the second level, the doctors and experts of Delhi Government will give time to meet the patient while receiving the call and message. If the case is an emergency, then they will accept their call immediately. Talking to patients will solve their problem. If needed, they will contact the concerned specialist doctor. After this, giving information to the patient, we will update it on CRM.
