Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) has now joined the digital India programme of the government by making OPD appointments, laboratory reports and blood-bank stock position available on the online registration system (ORS) http://ors.gov.in/, a national platform framework to link hospitals across the country.
The procedure for online appointments through ORS is simple. A person has to enter his/her Aadhaar or mobile number. In the first case, the person’s details are automatically picked up from the Aadhar database. In the second case, he/she is prompted to enter the required details. After this, the person chooses the hospital, the department in which appointment is required and the date of the proposed visit post which the person will then receive a confirmation SMS.
For accessing laboratory reports, the patient needs to select PGIMER and enter the CR number on the ORS website. An OTP will be sent on the registered mobile number, which can be used to view the laboratory reports. A similar procedure is to be followed for viewing on the lab reports on PGI’s website http://pgimer.edu.in/. The OPD registration and laboratory reports continue to be available to the patients through the PGIMER’s own website as well.
