This August, civic bodies in Tamil Nadu will require uploading their patients' details online, on a government software. As part of this initiative, hospitals in 12 corporations will have to notify the government, if patients walk in complaining of fever, diarrhoea, jaundice or encephalitis, even before an infectious disease is confirmed. Subsequent reports should also be uploaded online.
Public health officials are in the process of mapping hospitals. At present, 2,972 of all the hospitals and labs in the state have been asked to intimate the health department on a daily basis if they receive patients with symptoms of infections that are epidemic prone. The health inspector on ground will receive an SMS the minute a hospital feeds a patient's particulars. At least 23 ailments, including cholera, dengue and typhoid, have been declared as notifiable diseases. Through the online notification system, it is hoped that diseases like dengue, typhoid, chikungunya, leptospirosis and H1N1 flu do not become an epidemic.
Private Hospitals have welcomed this initiative.
