Jaipur: SMS Hospital in Jaipur has launched a mobile app that will make registration of patients for OPD, doctor’s appointment, obtaining test reports, and getting contact details of doctors in all departments extremely easy. The information on the mobile app is in English as well as Hindi. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. As soon as one opens the app, there will be an option for online OPD registration. After filling up the online form, the person will get a serial number on his or her mobile phone. This serial number can be shown to the employees at a separate counter in the hospital. The operator will print out a registration slip for the patient. “One can book a doctor’s appointment based on the day of the week for the OPD. If the user doesn’t know the doctor’s name, he or she can get the information from the app. It will also provide contact details in the ‘About Us’ section,” said SMS Hospital superintendent Dr DS Meena, adding that the app’s functionality was still being tested. “We will formally announce the launch of the app after testing it for bugs. The app will help people avoid queues and make it easy to get treatment at the hospital,” Meena said. In the coming days, patients who use the app for registration and appointment will be given priority. A patient will have to register on the app only once and get a permanent registration number. The treatment history will be available as soon as the patient fills in his or her registration number and Aadhaar number. The queue for mobile app users at labs and OPD will be separate. A maximum of 200 people will be allowed to register initially, but the limit will be increased later on.
