As of now 4 modules of HMIS viz registration, OPD, pharmacy and lab module have been implemented. The 2 Zonal Railways have provided their Master Data and we have configured it, hence roll out of all the other modules will not take time. The features of the software extend from customizing clinical data according to the departments and laboratories, multi hospital features that provide cross consultation, seamless interface with medical and other equipment and the patients will have the benefit of accessing all their medical records on their mobile device. There are about 20 modules of HMIS which will be implemented. The open source HMIS software is to be deployed over the cloud. This platform is linked to the unique medical ID of employees for which about 40 lacs UMID cards have been issued to the regular employees, pensioners and family members.
