Director SKIMS emphasized on installation & implementation of the Online  Payment Gateway System at SKIMS  on priority to facilitate patients. He said the facility will make it convenient and easy for patients/attendants to make payment through an online system any time and anywhere using mobile phones, kiosks. More importantly, it will decongest critical hospital service areas particularly the OPD areas, he added.

He also instructed concerned officers to explore the possibility of implementing the PayGo Payment Gateway of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology Govt. Of India (A National Payment Platform) as used by AIIMS New Delhi.

He also directed to establish fully developed Electronic Health Records System without delay to facilitate quick transfer of patient information as well as maintaining confidentiality which will prevent duplication of services and give instant access to patient information which would go a long way in helping quality research and settling medico-legal issues, insurance claims and other issues.

Prof Parvaiz A Koul insisted to make full use of IT System for quick Patient Care delivery which remains the top priority of SKIMS, he said.
