All public hospitals around the nation will soon be required to use the “time card,” according to the Ministry of Health and Population.
The newly implemented system will be used to deliver public hospital services within the allotted period.
It is a part of the integrated action plan the line ministry created to put the government’s common minimum policy into effect.
The action plan also includes a goal to install electronic medical record systems in all federal and provincial hospitals so that services like online ticketing and referral may be delivered properly.
The action plan has also developed a strategy to maintain standard healthcare charges at all hospitals run under federal authority.
Additionally, it has proposed a strategy to improve Nepal Aushadi Limited’s ability to produce the 98 different medications needed to supply basic healthcare services in line with the “Make in Nepal” philosophy.
Similar to this, the government has created the “one doctor, one health worker” initiative, which is being implemented in three major hospitals, namely Bit Hospital, Paropakar Maternity Hospital, and Kanti Children’s Hospital.
Soon, the initiative would take effect in hospitals.
