Tata Memorial Hospital enables outdoor patients to submit their medical reports online

Sunday, January 2, 2011

Tata Memorial Hospital, a specialist cancer treatment and research centre based in Mumbai, has introduced new online patient services that will allow international and national patients to submit their medical reports to the hospital online. Once submitted, doctors at TMH will go through the report and then decide whether the patient actually needs to come to the hospital. The move is expected to help patients save money and time.

TMH has also developed an e-system which will enable patients from around the world to send their tissue samples that are suspected to be cancerous to the hospital for medical advice. “Earlier, it used to take 15 days or more for people to send their tissue samples for examination and us to reply on it. We intend to make the entire procedure online and reduce the paper work,” Dr H K V Narayan, medical superintendent, TMH, has said. [Source: NDTV]
