The district model hospital at Peroorkada will have online booking system soon. Though it was one of the objectives of the e-health project, introduced by the department of health and family welfare in January last year, it could not start for various reasons. There is an online booking system at SAT Hospital, one of the other 13 hospitals in  seven  districts where the project was introduced.  

 N. Sreedhar, additional project director of the e-health project, said, “we are ironing out some issues with the software. For example, some people will prefer specific doctors and would not be OK  with all doctors. In this case, on a day when the doctor is absent, a linear logic will not work. We are still working out solutions to such issues,”  he said. The initiative will be of use to everyone who is internet-literate, though a huge proportion of a long queue at the Peroorkada hospital was made of old people, who didn’t have a smart phone.
