New Delhi: In a bid to provide better healthcare amenities to its employees, Coal India Limited (CIL) will soon set up 25 Digital Dispensaries in its five subsidiaries. CIL has issued an LoA for setting up 11 dispensaries in CCL, 6 in MCL, 6 in ECL, 1 in SECL and 1 in WCL. This new initiative aims to bring the medical expertise of regional and central hospitals to a dispensary, through technology, without requiring a physical visit of the patient to the doctor. 

The Digital Dispensary will have an integrated Telemedicine Terminal having real time video conference facility with the help of a Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), e-prescription, electronic medical records and analytics. The CDSS provides end-to-end diagnostic and therapeutic tools to the physician.

It is a semantic algorithm-based suite that allows doctors to do a differential diagnosis, check investigations & interpret them real time, check for treatment protocols and titrate dosages for the patient. 

The Dispensary will have an IoT device that will check all vitals & get investigation reports under the supervision of a nurse, within 15 minutes.

This will be with the help of routine point of connection (PoC) tests and will also contain a fully automatic Biochemistry Analyser analysing 33 Blood parameters. This is a self-contained box that accommodates both primary & emergency healthcare needs except an X-Ray & USG.
