The state cab­i­net ap­proved a pro­posal to set up a cen­tral­ized in­for­ma­tion sys­tem for the state’s med­i­cal col­leges, hos­pi­tals and health cen­tres.

Dur­ing a meet­ing at Pro­ject Build­ing, the gov­ern­ment okayed the pro­posal to set up a Na­tional In­for­mat­ics Cen­tre (NIC) to de­velop a cen­tral­ized data base for on­line reg­is­tra­tion, re­fer­ral of pa­tients and main­te­nance of t he in­ven­tory for drugs and equip­ment.

Ad­dress­ing the me­dia af­ter the meet­ing, Suren­dra Singh Meena, sec­re­tary of the cab­i­net co­or­di­na­tion depart­ment, said, “The data base will help main­tain the stock of medicine and equip­ment. Pa­tients who will be re­ferred from health cen­tres can eas­ily show their med­i­cal his­tory. Real time mon­i­tor­ing of nurses and hos­pi­tal staff will also be pos­si­ble.”

In another de­ci­sion, the cab­i­net ap­proved a pro­posal to amend the Jhark­hand In­dus­trial Area De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (JIADA) reg­u­la­tions.

The cab­i­net also gave its nod to ap­point Jhark­hand In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (JIDCO), the in­spec­tion agency for sin­gle win­dow sys­tem of in­dus­tries depart­ment.
