Hubballi: Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar instructed officials to implement a technology-based centralized bed allocation system just like Bengaluru in the Dharwad district.
The minister instructed Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil to implement the system at the earliest, for this, the DC replied that this would be implemented in a day or two.
Sudhakar said that due to lack of information on the availability of vacant beds patients visit many hospitals and by the time they find a bed there would be lots of delays and the patients get admission at the advanced stage of infection. To avoid this a real-time dashboard to display the availability of all kinds of beds in all the hospitals should be available to the public online, he said.
Sudhakar also instructed DC to construct a team in this regard and the team should work in three shifts so that patients’ relatives get the details about the beds round the clock.
