AIIMS to have a KAYA KALP
Central government to invest 1 crore for administration upgrade drive at AIIMS
The initiative is to uplift the several areas including sanitation, digitisation and staff management, and also to clearly categorise risk management areas like OT’s, and laboratories
The Central government has clearly laid its focus on improving the administration abilities of India’s premier institute, AIIMS, by making it more patient friendly. Union Health Minister, JP Nadda has recently announced a campaign in its effort to upgrade several existing areas including, sanitation, digitisation and staff management.
The initiative will be part of the Kaya Kalp Abhiyan, a campaign that will be launched on the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's pet Clean India campaign. As a result, many new committees will be formed on sanitation, cleanliness and maintenance of various departments. Correspondingly, a logo and posters will be launched for the campaign.
As reported by IANS,
"This will be a very big campaign aimed at several issues related to the hospital, which were lacking till now. Through this campaign, we are trying to transform the hospital into a better one. Image building will also be a part of it," V. Srinivas, deputy director of administration at AIIMS, told IANS.
He said the central government has set aside a sum of Rs.1 crore in the form of immediate sum and after looking at the work further funds will be released.
"To upgrade the online registration of patients, the hospital has already ordered 100 new computers and a new department is being created for their installation from where the department will function. This is something that will make the registration process much easier," added Srinivas.
He said training sessions will be started for sanitary staff.
AIIMS has also tied up with the Tata Group, as the campaign will be a public private partnership project, he said.
