Subject: ECHS Referral procedure NCR
A major hurdle in the referral procedure for NCR veterans has been removed. The letter below issued by the MD ECHS is self explanatory. In a nut shell -
Firstly. Patients in NCR can be referred directly to any empanelled hospital in the NCR.
Secondly. However delhi patients will continue to be routed to empanelled hospitals if required via base hosp and RR to ensure full utilisation of RR and base hosp facilities.
Thirdly. Hindan patients will be routed to empanelled hosps thru 11 AFH to ensure full utilisation of 11 AFH facilities.
Fourthly. Cases for Jt Replacement will be referred to Army Hospital (R&R) for evaluation in all cases to ensure full utisation of RR facilities.
Fifthly. An echs cell is being created in RR and base hosp with an MO to permit telephonic appts etc.
Sixthly. If a patient desires he will be referred to RR/ base hosp.
Seventhly. Effective from 1 sep 2009.
FINALLY PLEASE NOTE SIMILAR EXERCISE IS UNDERWAY FOR ALL STAS AND WILL BE IMPLEMENTED ON A TIME BOUND BASIS .
