The GMCH is all set to launch the facility of online pre-registration for Outpatient Departments (OPDs) on a chosen day and time slot.


Officials said that the service would be launched within 10 days in the GMCH Those opting for online registration will not have to stand in long queues at the registration counter for obtaining the OPD card before seeing the doctor. The module, which, according to the authorities, has been completed, is awaiting the final trial.

"Initially, we have divided the OPD hours (from 9 am to 1 pm) into four slots of one hour each. Online registration will be allotted to two patients per slot per doctor. In each slot, one doctor will see two patients who come after online registration (in addition to those who register manually)," explained Dr Atul Sachdev, Director-Principal, GMCH.
