Helpdesk’s prime objective is to provide public with easy connectivity to health infrastructure and service related concerns. It also includes easy accessibility of available schemes, other non-emergency concerns pertaining to health department and to develop an issue redressal mechanism for the patients. The proposed helpline would work as a single point of contact for public. It can also be approached for services such as medical emergencies including Janani Express services, paid ambulance services, medical advisory services and government’s health insurance related support.
It will ensure public’s direct access to the health department. The central helpline will transfer calls related to medical emergencies of fire, ambulance services and Janani Express to the existing toll free numbers 108/104. It will focus on other non-emergency and untouched medical and health concerns related to public.
