Aug 21, 2018 (LBO) – A Fully-owned subsidiary of Sri Lanka Telecom, e-Channelling PLC recently launched its service at Ampara General Hospital marking it as the first district Hospital in Sri Lanka to have the service.
The company said the facility will be launched islandwide in the future as a national endeavor to revolutionize the healthcare sector.
The project is carried out under the guidance of the Health Ministry, Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure and ICTA by upgrading the existing health care system and enhancing its position in global rankings.
This partnership is expected to facilitate smooth access to medical care for government hospital patients.
Patients can make OPD time reservation via 0715 225 225 from any network without waiting in queues for OPD treatment in government hospitals. The service is offered free-of-charge.
The time reservation facility has been extended to the internet and smartphones, boasting the latest technology for the further convenience of users.
“This would also help hospitals to better utilize the physical infrastructure and human resources more effectively and efficiently,” eChannelling said.
“This service also greatly benefits patients as it saves them time otherwise spent waiting at the OPD for hours, and keeps the hospital informed in advance about their service requirements.”
