Tags: State News
Kerala government will soon launch an online monitoring facility to track the availability and distribution of medicines in government medical institutions in the state.
IMPORTANT FACTS -
- The facility has been introduced after reports of shortage of medicines, even basic medicines, in government hospitals.
Kerala Health Minister Veena George announced the launch of this surveillance system to ensure the availability and distribution of medicines in hospitals.
This process is developed to balance the demand for medicines keeping in mind the need and potential growth in each hospital along with storage and distribution of medicines.
When all the hospitals will update the data regarding the distribution of medicines on a daily basis then it will be possible to know the stock of medicine in the hospital and medicines can be distributed as per their shortage.
