One key work during fellowship
- Poor status of the schemes formulated under National Rural Health Mission. There was a gap between what was made available to the PHC and what was made available for the common citizens. The authorities also mixed up the numbers to show a better output on paper. It was specifically visible in the institutional delivery data.
What was done:
- Establishing coordination between various entities of the PHC. Apart from the online reporting the availability of the drugs and equipment was made available to all the stakeholders including the citizens. To counter the inflated numbers the digital camera was asked to be used for capturing the photographs in the hospital itself. X ray machine contractor was asked to resume the services.
- Citizens were able to enjoy the services without any information gap. The processes was more streamlined and transparent. Ambulance now had the basic requirements covered for the people availing the services. At the same time the doctors felt more responsible for the work being done in the hospital.
