Use video consultation to avoid OPD rush in AIIMS

Bharat Mahan

Getting a second opinion from specialists at AIIMS or seeking their suggestions on post-operative care is now just a click away.

Patients can log in to the institute's website and put a request for video consultation, a feature added recently to the online OPD consultation system.

Officials told TOI that the dry run of AIIMS video clinic has been completed successfully. Specialists from 20 departments, including medicine, gastroenterology and cardiology, have consented to taking out a couple of hours daily for the job, they added.

Dr Deepak Agrawal, who heads the IT division, said that this consultation will not be valid for medico-legal purposes as it will be given without the physical presence of the patient.
