Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi (NVI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today launched a mobile app for people to get an online OPD appointment and registration system at  Delhi’s Shri Dada Dev Matri Avum Shishu Chikitsalaya.

Speaking at the launch through video conferencing, Kejriwal said that the app has some features which would be incorporated in the hospital management system in the national capital.

The Delhi CM also stressed that patients would no longer have to wait in long queues, keeping in mind the protocol of social distancing in times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The hospital is very important for Mother and Child care. Around 10,000 deliveries take place at this hospital in a year. Its capacity will be increased from 106 beds to 281 beds,” he added.

Shri Dada Dev Matri Avum Shishu Chikitsalaya is first hospital established by the Delhi government to provide mother and child healthcare services in an integrated way.

Kejriwal also informed that this app would be very beneficial as patients would not have to stand in long queues not just during the coronavirus time but after the pandemic as well, adding that, mothers, especially pregnant ones, do not have to wait in lines and outside the doctor’s rooms for long.

He further stated, all multi-speciality and super-speciality project would fall under this system. It is a very ambitious project which will be completed in one year’s time. The app has some good features that we could also incorporate in our hospital management system as well.

However, this app is being used to protect against the outbreak of coronavirus infection and will continue even further. It will be started in other hospitals as well, because of which patients will be benefited greatly, Kejriwal said.
