The out-patient investigations are unique in offering an exclusive patient service with a strict patient-centric protocol. After completing the consultation, a doctor might order for a particular investigation or a set of investigations.
A Guest Relation Executive (GRE) counsels the patient and completes the billing formalities. After this, the GRE accompanies the patient to the respective procedure section, and then the concerned department’s team or nurse assists the patient. Once the tests are done, the GRE counsels the patient regarding the availability of the reports and the turn-around time (TAT). After the reports are ready, an auto generated text would be sent to the patient’s registered mobile number.
With the user ID and password provided at the time of registration, patient can login to our website/mobile app to view or download his/her reports. The patient may collect the hard copies based on his/her convenience. Consultants can view the same reports online in EMR and suggest the patient accordingly.
Once the admission is done, the admitting consultant might order a few investigations to judge the medical condition of the patient. Alternatively, as a Duty Medical Officer (DMO) / nurse is monitoring the patient’s condition, they might consult the admitting consultant, who in turn might order a few investigations. In either case, the DMO / nurse enter the order in the system.
In case of laboratory investigation, the sample is collected in the patient’s room, and then sent to the laboratory for further study and analysis. For the radiology and cardiology investigations, a nurse takes the appointment from the respective department and confirms the appointment before shifting the patient. Preparation for the investigation is taken care of by the concerned nurse. During all times of patient transfer, the nurse accompanies the patient.
Bedside procedures are performed for sick patients. All the patients in Critical care ICU’s are directed for bedside procedures. In case a patient from the critical care area has to be transferred for investigation, the DMO accompanies the patient until the procedure is completed and the patient is transferred back to the room.
