This new system will ensure ease of access to doctors, regulation of patient crowds in out-patient departments (OPDs), easier referrals and also telemedicine facilities for online consultations, he said. Besides that, infectious and lifestyle diseases, as well as mother-child health protection, would also be dealt with under the e-health scheme, he added.

Under the new system, health workers would visit homes to gather health details of all family members and in this way, we will get a blueprint regarding the infectious and lifestyle diseases prevalent amongst the general public, he said.

Besides this, several emerging technology health projects like diabetic retinopathy, blood bank traceability and vaccine coverage analysis are also being launched by the Kerala Development and Innovation Strategy Council (K-DISC), the CM said during the online event.
