NHM Uttar Pradesh sets up 200+ Health ATMs, facilitates training of healthcare personnel
In a bid to bolster the health infrastructure of the state, the Uttar Pradesh government has set up 200 Health ATMs across identified health units. These innovative machines offer patients teleconsultation with access to over 30 tests, making healthcare easier and more accessible.
To ensure the smooth operation of Health ATMs in Primary Health Centres, Community Health Centres, and District Hospitals, the National Health Mission Headquarters organized training sessions for healthcare personnel. The Indian manufacturer of Health ATMs, Clinics On Cloud, supported this training. During this two-day event, participants received in-depth training on Health ATMs and how to address identified health deficiencies.
Principal Secretary, Medical Health and Family Welfare, Partha Sarathi Sen Sharma, shared that Health ATMs offer 30 different types of tests, with results available within minutes after testing. Furthermore, patients can share these results with doctors, saving time and ensuring a smooth patient experience.
With Health ATMs, a plethora of tests like lipid profile, blood sugar, ECG, blood pressure, HbA1C, can be performed in one place with ease. Using these data-points, the machine generates a AI-powered personalized Indian meal plan which helps maintain a nutritious and balanced diet. Test results along with the meal plan is sent to the patient via multiple communication channels like e-mail, WhatsApp and SMS. The Health ATM’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it can be operated without any internet and electricity, can be easily installed with minimal standing area and can be operated by even a layman.
In places where doctors are not available, telemedicine consultations are available via Health ATMs, allowing patients to access care even in remote locations. This integrated approach to healthcare ensures that patients can receive both examination and treatment under one roof, reducing stress and worry for patients and their attendants.
