‘Stay Home OPD’ begins in Haryana

Wednesday, 16 September 2020 | PNS | Chandigarh

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Tuesday said that to ensure uninterrupted health services during the on-going COVID-19 Pandemic, an online health facility ‘Stay Home OPD’ has been started in the State under the name of ‘e-Sanjeevani OPD'.

With this, people suffering from various health ailments can get themselves registered on the ‘e-Sanjeevani’ app to get free online medical consultation, said the Health Minister.

Vij said that due to the difficult circumstances arising due to COVID-19 Pandemic, people suffering from other medical ailments were facing a lot of problems, to solve which the Central Government has launched ‘e-Sanjeevani OPD'. This service has also been started in Haryana, under which so far more than 1000 patients have benefited from it. This facility is being provided free of cost to all patients of the State. For this, patients will have to download the ‘e-Sanjeevani OPD’ app in their mobile, after which a token number will be generated.

The Minister said that the government is committed to provide medical facilities to every patient at their doorsteps and for this, any patient can get online consultation by connecting with the concerned doctor using laptop, desktop or Android smartphone while staying at home.

On this online platform, a patient can upload all his reports and get information about the disease and the required line of treatment from the doctor. After this, the doctor will also give an online prescription to his patient, which will be valid for all other health facilities in Haryana for medical treatment.

The Health Minister said that due to COVID-19 Pandemic people may face many types of physical and mental problems. Therefore, if timely treatment and counseling is not given to such people, then there is a possibility that health ailments might get increased and to ensure this does not happen,   ‘Stay Home OPD’ will be playing an important  role. He said that this facility will be available for patients from 10 am to 1 am and from 3 pm to 5 pm from Monday to Saturday.
