Odisha Government Launches Four Healthcare Services

A healthy nation is a wealthy nation. Healthcare is important to the society because people get ill, accidents and emergencies do arise and the hospitals are needed to diagnose, treat and manage different types of ailments and diseases. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched four healthcare services for the benefit of the general public.

The schemes are Nidaan, Sahay, Ama Clinic and Anmol. Under the Nidaan scheme, the state government has decided to provide identified diagnostic services free of cost to all patients in the public health facilities of the state from January 1, 2018.

"Besides, additional diagnostic service such as high-end pathology tests, digital X-ray, CT scan and MRI will be provided free of cost in government facilities in PPP mode by March, 2018," said the Chief Minister.

Under the Sahay scheme, the government will provide free dialysis service to all patients in the public health facilities from January 1.

A total of 127 dialysis machines will be installed in Public-Private Partnership (PPP) mode at 25 district headquarters hospitals and one community health centre at Narasinghpur in Cuttack district by March, 2018, said Patnaik.

Under the Ama Clinic scheme, additional services in urban clinics including fixed day specialists services in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Paediatrics, Medicine and Geriatrics, Eye-care, Physiotherapy and Psychiatric services will be provided. An urban population of over 45 lakh in 27 towns will benefit under the scheme, the Chief Minister said.

With a view to equip the Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) with the latest technology, the government has decided to provide Anmol tablet computers to all the ANMs. "It will help in providing real-time service to the beneficiaries, especially pregnant women, mothers and newborns in the state," Patnaik said.
