JORHAT, Jan 25 � In order to expedite better healthcare services towards the people of Jorhat and its adjoining districts, the Jorhat Medical College Hospital (JMCH) authority has taken up a slew of measures which are expected to generate a feel-good ambience for all category of patients, attendants and the medical staff inside the hospital campus soon, which was unfortunately witness to incidents of medical negligence and lack of adequate services during the past few months.
With the technical expertise of Jorhat Engineering College (JEC), the hospital is going to set-up a central database which will provide three principal governance facilities like hospital management information system, campus management system and content management system. As such facilities were never installed earlier in the management�s computers concerned, officials faced problems in regular monitoring of routine activities and ancillary stocks.
Further, the hospital authority recently introduced a suggestion box in front of the superintendant�s office for dropping hints, while at the same time providing a mobile number ( 94013-22088) for sending short messages related to grievances directly to the newly-appointed hospital superintendant Dr Bobyjeet Goswami.
In addition to these facilities, superintendant Dr Goswami has initiated some effective measures for cleanliness in the hospital which has already made it a better place for treatment during the past few weeks.
�We are committed to make the hospital a better one. Everything possible will be done for extending quality service to the people,�said Dr Goswami.
In addition to these measures, the hospital authority is also going to include JMCH in the National Medical College Network (NMCN) soon, which will interconnect the Jorhat-based medical college hospital with the best-known medical colleges and institutes across the country.
Once included, doctors and medical students of the college will be able to avail technical solutions from this national network of medical studies and treatment as different experts and medical scientists are being connected through NMCN.
�Patients will be able to get the benefit of telemedicine system after inclusion of JMCH in the NMCN. Though the telemedicine system was introduced in the old civil hospital of Jorhat, it was not operational for many reasons,� said many doctors of the hospital.
Besides, the hospital is now being equipped with another 40-bed paediatric unit which is ready to improve the child-care facilities in the hospital.
The hospital authority duly recognised the invaluable contribution of Jorhat Deputy Commissioner Solanki Vishal Vasant and the assistant professor of the Paediatric Department, Dr Manab Narayan Baruah for transforming the childcare unit into an improved facility in the hospital.
