The Indian state of Tamil Nadu is implementing a $7.6m (Rs35 crore) public hospitals project across the state to switch from paper records to electronic ones.

According to reports, the Health Management Information System will be implemented in 1,400 primary health centres, 270 secondary health centres and 17 tertiary health centres across the state.

The system enables doctors to access a patient’s history by using a unique identification project, thereby optimising healthcare services.

The project has already been implemented in 35 hospitals and is expected to complete deployment in remaining health centres within six months.
