Udupi District Hospital is first e-Hospital of the state

The news says that medical history of any patient will be available to all networked government hospitals. But what we need is an interface similar to UPI for cashless transaction which will enable any record of any patient undergone treatment at any hospital irrespective of government or private to be available in any other hospital through Unified Hospitals Interface.

Other intersting thing is whether the government is going to make doctor's prescription available to pharmacist electronically. Irrespective of digitization and electronic signature I would like a printed copy being signed by doctor available to patient so that he can cross check what pharmacist gave against this. Although purchase data can be stored it should not be transparent to doctor! And some of issues may also have to be addressed like what is the expiry time for doctor's prescription? Or how long a person can take medicine without renewing prescription? Whether system will just generate warning or stop issuing medicine itself (not for medicines recommended for life time) or whether prescription can be automatically renewed without the patient visiting doctor again?
