Diagnostic care all set to become hassle-free

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Mar 9:The coming few months will see a major upgrade of diagnostic facilities at Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), specifically aimed at addressing a lot of niggling logistic issues and providing better patient care.
Instead of having a clutch of laboratories for different medical departments scattered across the NIMS campus, last year the hospital management had decided to have a Combined Advanced Laboratory (CAL) on the fifth floor of the Millennium Block.
The construction activity of the centralised laboratory is almost over and officials hope to be able to throw it open in a month's time.
The new facility is coming up at an estimated cost of nearly Rs 40 crore to address the present-day logistical challenge that patients face to access diagnostic tests at different places in NIMS campus.
For the first time, the NIMS management has also set up a highly complex state-of-the-art pneumatic tube system, which will enable quick transport of patient laboratory samples and other minor medical items from different departments to the new laboratory. Tenders for this were almost finalised, officials said. Under one roof, the CAL will house microbiology, pathology and biochemistry departments, which will enable quicker diagnostic tests.
Senior doctors said that after the inauguration of CAL, a committee will be constituted to work towards getting accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
The centralised laboratory will also allow NIMS authorities to integrate the recently launched Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) with laboratory tests. The authorities said that due to HMIS, patients or their relatives would be able to access their laboratory test results on their mobile phones.
Apex Diagnostic Centre
One of the landmark facilities with a potential to catapult NIMS amongst the top health care institutions in the country is the proposed Apex Diagnostic Centre on the seventh floor of Millennium Block.
Spread over a built-up space of 25,000 sft, Apex Diagnostic Centre will provide highly advanced diagnostic and research facilities that are not available in any of the existing State-run health institutions in the State.
The centre has been planned in such a way that it would function as a referral laboratory for advanced diagnostic tests for the entire State and provide advanced diagnostic tests either free of cost or at affordable rates. Apart from being a NABL accredited laboratory and other International agencies, it will also be an advanced training centre for future laboratory professionals and provide enough space for cutting-edge research.
