Lucknow’s Balrampur Hospital – Asia’s biggest government hospital – is set to introduce a mobile app for patients. The Times of India reports that the app will save patients the trouble of going back for medical reports, and according to Dr EU Siddiqui, will also inform users about “facilities being provided by the hospital.” He added,
Patients will also have access to free Wi-Fi in the campus. They will also be saved from unnecessary visits to the hospital as they may opt for planned visits using a helpline facility that will soon be started.”
Dr Siddiqui also said the hospital is augmenting the facility for dialysis through a public-private partnership, and that a separate operation theatre is also being constructed to cut down the risk of infection.
