Tamolia heal hub starts e-innings

- HP-Brahmananda Narayana hospital launches unit at Musabani block

Brahmananda Narayana Multispeciality Hospital in association with IT giant Hewlett-Packard on Monday announced the launch of its first e-health centre at Musabani, a rural block in East Singhbhum district.

The healing hub’s new initiative is aimed at taking primary healthcare and diagnostic facilities to remote villages in Jharkhand. Paramedical experts from Tamolia-based Brahmananda Narayana Multispeciality Hospital, located about 16km from the steel city and 45km from the Musabani centre, will manage the e-healing hub over Internet.

Announcing the launch of the centre on Monday, Vineet Saini, facility director of the hospital, said, “The healthcare situation in rural Jharkhand is in a dismal state with contagious waterborne diseases, reproductive tract infections and other chronic ailments pushing up the mortality rate. Through this initiative, we plan to overcome infrastructure constraints and provide basic healthcare to rural people of the state.”

Sahni added that the centre would reach out to over three to four lakh people residing in areas in Galudih, Ghatsila, Surda, Musabani, Baharagoda and Chakulia. The e-health centre is equipped with latest medical technology such as integrated diagnostic equipment, tele-medicine service, a laboratory and a pharmacy.

“This set-up has electricity and Internet connectivity. Our specialised doctors at Brahmananda Narayana Multispeciality Hospital can counsel patients on treatment of various ailments over Internet,” said Saini.

The centre will be continuously monitored by senior and experienced doctors at the Tamolia healing hub through techniques like biometric surveillance and cloud enabled medical devices.
