“POLITICAL COMMITMENT COUPLED WITH INSTITUTIONAL MECHANISM AND A SENSE OF OWNERSHIP” CAN DELIVER HEALTHCARE AT DOORSTEP THROUGH USE OF TECHNOLOGY: PHD CHAMBER
 

National Conference on Technology & Innovations in Healthcare Delivery held here today under aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry strongly felt that with “political commitment coupled with institutional mechanism and a sense of ownership” could only make technology deliver the desired results to improving mass healthcare at doorsteps.
 

It was also felt that the “intent to appropriate the technologies by medical professionals and other associates attached with them incase if missing, the medical facilities and their dispensation to public at large will remain a goal unfulfilled”. 
 

Therefore, it is mandatory that the spirit of quick absorptions of technological applications are necessary in healthcare sector and all its professionals to take medical care to end consumers, was another view that surfaced in the National Conference on Technology & Innovations in Healthcare Delivery held here today.
 

Speaking on the occasion, Mission Director, Delhi State Health Mission, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Tarun Seem emphasized that ‘Mohalla Clinics’ and other decongestant measures that have been initiated in Delhi hospitals by the Government of Delhi with technological applications are successful because of political commitment.
 

In addition to political commitment, the Delhi Government has been able to deliver basic and primary health to its public and masses because of suitable institutional mechanism in place as also sense of ownership as these factors put together provide for grace and pride with people involved in deliveries of healthcare with upgraded technological applications.
 

CEO Incharge, National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH), Dr. B K Rana in his observations felt that compliance to healthcare standards as evolved by NABH have begun to be adhered to since 2006 though hospitals need much more improvement on compliance.
 

Among others who spoke on the occasion comprised Scientist ‘G’ Department of Scientific & Industrial Research, Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, Mr. Ashwani Gupta; Senior Vice President, PHD Chamber, Mr. Anil Khaitan and its Sr. Secretary, Dr. Jatinder Singh.
