To minimize footfall at Northern Railway hospitals/ Health units for generic treatments, RailTel has developed a teleconsultation app. The mConsultancy Railway HMIS app has been developed and integrated under the ongoing Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) project. Apart from the mConsultancy RailTel has also developed a Covid portal and a mobile app for medical beneficiaries. The Covid portal captures and maintains all data related to covid patients (testing, line of treatment, current status etc) for better monitoring of treatment. The Patient mobile App enables the medical beneficiaries to access their medical record at one place.
HMIS is an integrated clinical information system to be implemented across 125 Railway health facilities and 650 polyclinics across India for improved hospital administration and patient healthcare. HMIS aims at digitizing the functioning of hospitals to provide faster and seamless service.
mConsultancy Railway HMIS app is available on play store for downloading. The App enables patient to have video/audio conference with concerned Doctor. The patient details, symptoms can be filled in the app and doctor can share prescription in the app itself. RailTel has made tutorial video and set up a Helpdesk at 04027788200 for helping users with installing and using the app. This app is available for Northern Railway Central & Divisional Hospital, 13 Health units of Delhi Area. However, at short notice this can be made functional on IR units where HMIS is presently working, as per requirement of Hospital administration.

During this time of raging pandemic, these initiatives will help patients with minor illnesses to take consultation without the need for physically visiting hospitals. This will also help in for illnesses that require regular follow ups, as also mild covid case and post covid treatment. Talking about the app, Puneet Chawla, CMD RailTel said, “Given the pandemic situation, this app has been developed and integrated with ongoing HMIS project on a war footing. The mConsultancy Railway HMIS app will help the patients get treatment virtually without having to visit the hospital saving them from covid exposure. The Covid portal will help doctors to monitor the treatment progress with all the data and history readily available on dashboard and the mobile app for HMIS will store all data of patients for ready reference at any point of time ”. Apart from Northern Railway, HMIS is currently live at 5 hospitals of South-Central Railway and 1 health unit of North Eastern Railway. Work at other hospitals is in progress and will be completed in FY 21-22.
