Hyderabad: Telangana health and family welfare minister Harish Rao on Saturday launched the pilot project 'Telangana Health Profile' in Mulugu and Sircilla districts to improve the quality of healthcare services in government hospitals.

After the completion of the Telangana Health Profile in the two districts, the initiative will be expanded to all the districts in Telangana. The health profile is essentially aimed at creating a database of vital healthcare parameters of each individual in the two districts.

How does it work?

A digital data bank, the profile is aimed to collect the health data of the people.

Under the programme, Aadhaar numbers, addresses, blood sugar hypertension levels, non-communicable diseases (NCDs), etc, will be collected and recorded digitally. This data will be collected by a team of medical staff in each district.

Minister Harish Rao said a special officer will be deployed in Mulugu to collect citizens' health-related data. "Doctors can have a ready reference of a patient's health history. It will help in the treatment process," he said and added that the initiative will be a milestone in improving health conditions in the state.

Based on the health and medical history of each individual in the two districts, risk assessment will be taken up so that high-risk individuals can be identified and necessary health care services extended to them at the earliest.

If needed, individuals from the two districts who need to undergo tests to ascertain their general health condition will be able to avail of all the 57 diagnostic tests available through TS Diagnostic's scheme.

In case such individuals visit any government hospital in Telangana, all their medical records, including medical history and other vital parameters, will be accessible to the health care providers through the cloud storage facility.

Earlier, the state government had planned to launch the initiative in December 2021. However, due to the Omicron wave, the health profile project had to be halted.
