The Delhi government will open another 100 mohalla clinics in the nation’s capital to provide “world-class” primary healthcare services to all residents, an official statement said on Monday. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia gave an update on the mohalla clinic project and said the government was working on full digitization of clinics and doctors would be able to track patients’ medical history to provide better treatment, the statement read.

The capital currently has 519 mohalla clinics that offer free primary healthcare services to patients, including 212 different types of tests. Every day, more than 60,000 people are treated in these mohalla clinics. Preparations for these upcoming clinics are well advanced and will be completed soon, the statement said.

“The government of Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Mohalla clinics are known around the world, and people have traveled to Delhi to learn about this model of public health care,” Sisodia said. The Delhi government’s goal is to provide primary healthcare to every resident of Delhi, and the increase in the number of mohalla clinics is a historic step in that direction, he added. The statement also says that the digitization works of all mohalla clinics in Delhi are progressing rapidly. Many mohalla clinics have been fully digitized with patient information and medical history being collected using tablets available in the clinics.

Moreover, this data will be crucial in shaping health-related policies,” he said. -he declares.
