“Sam­sung is ex­tremely proud to part­ner with the state gov­ern­ment for this dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion in the pub­lic health­care space and is con­fi­dent that the ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy of Sam­sung Tab IRIS will give a dig­i­tal boost to the whole health­care sys­tem. This will en­able PHC to main­tain and share med­i­cal data­bases on a real time ba­sis. Sam­sung has been in In­dia for 21 years and has al­ways con­trib­uted to­wards mak­ing lives of its cus­tomers easy with the help of its in­no­va­tive, mean­ing­ful tech­nolo­gies,” said Dr. Alok­nath De, Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer, Sam­sung R&D In­sti­tute, Ban­galuru.

Sam­sung Tab IRIS is SIM en­abled and has the ca­pa­bil­ity to scan the iris of an in­di­vid­ual, which can then be linked to Aad­haar. This would help PHC to gen­er­ate var­i­ous value added re­ports to fa­cil­i­tate de­ci­sion mak­ing by the Health De­part­ment. This in­te­gra­tion of tech­nol­ogy with the help of Sam­sung Tab IRIS, aims to cen­trally consolidate in­for­ma­tion re­lated to PHC ad­min­is­tra­tion such as patient treat­ment, diagnosis, de­liv­er­ies and drug avail­abil­ity from var­i­ous lo­ca­tions along with GPS in­for­ma­tion.

“We are con­fi­dent that Sam­sung’s world class tech­nol­ogy will help us man­age our pub­lic health­care fa­cil­i­ties more ef­fi­ciently. Dig­i­tiz­ing the data­base is very im­por­tant for our PHC as it will lead to bet­ter plan­ning and de­ci­sion mak­ing at a state as well as cen­tral level,” said Ramesh Ku­mar, Min­is­ter, Health and Fam­ily Wel­fare De­part­ment, Gov­ern­ment of Kar­nataka.

“We aim to con­nect with each and ev­ery res­i­dent of Kar­nataka at their door steps by up­grad­ing the skills of our field staff and equip them with high tech Tabs. We are grate­ful to Sam­sung for as­so­ci­at­ing their pro­gram with Kar­nataka. In the days to come we will have Vir­tual Clin­ics with spe­cial­ists on board con­nected to pa­tients through these Tabs. The health records of pa­tients would be an­a­lyzed on­line to take ef­fec­tive steps to­wards pre­ven­tion of dis­eases. Au­dio visual aware­ness will also be en­hanced through the use of these Tabs,” said Dr. Shalini Ra­jneesh, Prin­ci­pal Sec­re­tary, Health and Fam­ily Wel­fare De­part­ment, Gov­ern­ment of Kar­nataka.

The dig­i­tal data­base of these PHC would have the ca­pa­bil­ity to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing im­ple­men­ta­tion of var­i­ous wel­fare schemes such as post-na­tal care kit for BPL/SC/ST women, Janani Su­rak­sha Yo­jana, and oth­ers at the PHC level. This would pro­vide in­for­ma­tion sup­port to the gov­ern­ment to proac­tively in­ter­vene for im­proved health of cit­i­zens and tar­get its wel­fare schemes more ef­fi­ciently.
