Revanth Reddy orders health cards for the people of Telangana:- Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has instructed officials to create a digital health profile for every individual in the state. He proposed the development of a digital health profile card that would have a unique number, allowing the government to provide necessary medical treatment during emergencies. The chief minister also suggested linking this digi health profile card with the Aarogyasri card.

During a recent review of the health department in Hyderabad, the chief minister addressed the issue of eliminating the requirement of the white ration card to access Aarogyasri services. This requirement has caused a significant increase in the number of people applying for new white ration cards in the state. To address this, the CM instructed officials to establish a unified policy that would allow nursing, physiotherapy, and paramedical colleges to be situated within medical college premises.

In addition, Revanth directed officials to expedite the construction of TIMS Super Specialty Hospitals in Warangal, LB Nagar, Sanath Nagar, and Alwal. He emphasized the importance of ensuring comprehensive medical services at Bibinagar-AIIMS, benefiting not only the residents of Khammam, Warangal, and Nalgonda districts, but also alleviating the burden on Osmania General Hospital (OGH) and NIMS.

The Union Health Minister will soon have a meeting with me to discuss the importance of providing complete medical services at AIIMS-Bibinagar, if necessary. We also talked about the implementation of Aarogyasri and the availability of funds for the health scheme. I have instructed officials to clear the Aarogyasri bills of government hospitals on a monthly basis. Additionally, they are required to reach an agreement with private hospitals to release Aarogyasri bills every three months. I have directed officials to immediately release the pending Rs 270 crore Aarogyasri bills for government hospitals and teaching hospitals affiliated with government medical colleges. The salaries of junior doctors, Asha workers, and staff nurses will be paid regularly every month.

Furthermore, officials have informed me about the challenges faced in expanding Osmania General Hospital. I acknowledge that the hospital building is of historical significance and the matter is currently pending in court. We will proceed according to the court's instructions.

I have also instructed officials to ensure that major pharmaceutical companies utilize their CSR funds to enhance housekeeping and maintenance services in government hospitals. This initiative will be piloted either at OGH or Gandhi hospital.
