With its skilled doctors, nurses and paramedical staff, AIIMS Bhopal is serving people with best medical facilities. The institute is doing exemplary work on research and innovations front to improve healthcare delivery system of the State, says Dr Sarman Singh, Director, AIIMS Bhopal, in conversation with Ritika Srivastava of Elets News Network (ENN).
Q How is AIIMS Bhopal contributing towards augmenting healthcare delivery system across the State?
It was started with the establishment of AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) Delhi in 1956 to serve as a nucleus for nurturing excellence in all aspects of healthcare. But later it was realised that the institute was overburdened and struggling to cope up the pressure coming from the States.
In 2004, it was decided to establish AIIMS in every State to augment existing healthcare delivery system.
In addition, the purpose of setting up AIIMS was to train faculty and staff by new conventions and to promote more research work to improve patient care.
AIIMS Bhopal has been doing the same. After AIIMS Delhi, AIIMS Bhopal has emerged as the closest competitor in terms of catering people with all types of diseases.
We are now shifting to referrals only. People suffering with rare diseases would be treated. AIIMS, Bhopal has required trained staff and equipment to provide quality medical facilities. In addition, we are also working on research and innovations, as no institute can sustain without meticulous research.
Q In the present times, healthcare industry is being driven by digital initiatives. Can you share with us something about such initiatives at AIIMS Bhopal?
