Making the city a smart city is in the best interest of it’s people. Today, we are working to make our city smart in terms of mobility, communication, waste disposal and in many more areas. Among all these parameters how can we forget about smart health care facilities. Smart health care means smart hospitals which focus on a better provision which creates an environment that fosters patient’s well being. Our city has already begun the process of making itself smart in terms of health care by introducing the option of online registration at PGIMER.
PGIMER (Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research) which goes by the motto “Service to the Community, Care of the Needy and Research for the Good of All”is a recognized and a very well-established medical and research institution in Chandigarh, India. Located at a very prime location – Sector 12, it has become one of the most reliable and secure options even for the people of nearby cities and states to rely upon.The number of patients approaching this hospital for availing health care has been growing ever since it was founded. More patients mean longer queues and more waiting thus making the process of PGIMER online registration for patients much more tedious and difficult.
But now the initiatives have been taken to lessen the congestion. PGI has introduced the service of Online OPD Registration which means there is no need for the patients to stand in long queues for their OPD cards. On just a few clicks you can book an appointment at PGI hospital and all of this is possible while sitting in comfort at your home.
One has to follow just a few easy-peasy steps. But, the process of PGIMER online registration is different for new and existing patients. Basically, the new patients have to get registered thus get an OPD card which is the add-on to the process, whereas the old patients are already registered and own an OPD card. If you are facing any kind of confusion about the online registration at PGIMER then all you need is to go through this article once.
