Online Registration System for Hospitals: All you need to know



Under the flagship of Digital India initiative, the Government of India has launched another service whereby, rather than standing in queues in Government and Private hospitals to get your Out-Patient Department (OPD) slips, you can now register online and get an appointment in a particular hospital with a particular medical specialization department. Thanks to the Online Registration System (ORS).

What is Online Registration System (ORS)?

Online Registration System (ORS) is a platform with an aim of linking maximum hospitals (Government as well as Private) throughout the country enabling online account registration and generating appointment based on Aadhar card through Hospital Management Information System (HMIS). ORS Portal is designed to facilitate online medical appointments with nearly all departments of ORS registered hospitals using the patient details as registered in the Aadhar database which should have been linked with the user’s active mobile number.

In case, the mobile number is not registered with Aadhar, the patient’s Unique Health Identification number is generated for future use.

Features of Online Registration System:

  1. Simplified Appointment Procedure: Unlike previous times, when visiting a doctor was a tedious task requiring standing in queues for getting OPS slips, ORS has made the process simpler where you need to create an ORS account, choose concerned hospital and respective department, choose date of appointment and received appointment confirmation on registered mobile via SMS.
  2. Online Lab & Diagnostic Reports: The system enables the patients to check their lab reports online for the regsitered hospitals.
  3. Blood Bank Blood Availability: Blood seekers can easily get the details of blood units available in a particular registered Blood Bank through the system.
  4. Easy Registration process for Hospitals: The hospitals can easily join the system and can manage their patient inflow also facilitating the patients to book an online appointment.

What is needed to create an ORS Account?

Shimla City – Private Bus Operators Seen Creating Nuisance by Blocking Road



Shimla-private-buses 2

Shimla-In yet another instance, two private bus operators in Shimla city were seen creating a nuisance for the public by jamming the traffic. A reader clicked some pictures at the BCS bust stop in Shimla city on February 19, 2022, at about 8 PM and shared them with us. The reader alleged that two private bus operators, namely ‘Komal’ and ‘Chadda’, indulged in a verbal spat, most probably over their schedule. While the drivers argued, one of the buses remained parked in the middle of the road, choking the traffic. The staff of these two buses indulged in a verbal spat for about 5-10 minutes during which the general public faced a huge inconvenience. The reader has requested the Traffic Police Shimla to take action against such operators and discourage them from adopting such a bullying attitude that they don’t even hesitate to block the entire road.

Littering – A Grave Threat to Sundernagar Lake and Its Aquatic Life



sundernagar lake littering

Sundernagar-Many people visit the Sundernagar lake in Mandi district and litter along the road. Winds carry all those packets and plastic bottles into the lake. This practice of littering is unlawful because it costs millions in clean-up projects. It portrays a bad picture of an area. Littering is a huge threat to the aquatic life too. In my view, the solution is awareness, responsibility, sensibility and concern for nature. We as a society need to play a big role. At least, dustbins should be installed along the lake. Otherwise, the negligence in the present will affect us in near future.
