DIGITAL EMERGING STATE
Close on the heels of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of Digital India initiative, the newly formed Telangana state has sprung into action. The state already put in place the IT infrastructure through Telangana State Wide Area Network (TSSWAN) and Telangana State Data Centre (TSSDC). The state has developed 10 district portals, which enables the citizens to access relevant information. This along with the “Mee Seva” facility helps the citizens to interact with the state government functionaries (G2C) for a host of public delivery services. What’s fascinating, the state is rolling out an e-Hospital that will maintain electronic medical records of each patient that will help in the integrated hospital management system, disease surveillance and healthcare planning.
