The services at ECHS dispensaries is deteriorating everyday and so is the treatment we are basis's out at approved Hospitals.The main reason i s non payment of their outstanding bills.In directly it is assigned to the corruption which has spread its effect in armed forces too.

There is repeated non availability of medicines even for serious patients and blame vs blame leaves the patient in bewildered state of confusion and is either made to spend money from his pocket or spend in transportation.In case the medicine is not available why it is not delivered at the residence of patient .I feel if a local shopkeeper arranges home delivery why ECHS cannot provide this service even at cost on no profit no loss basis.
Referring patient to Hospitals is a time consuming as well as disturbing the Medical officer resulting in irritation and waste of time.I understand this is because of non renewal of contract with the soft ware company.
I pray authorities remove minor flaws to make the scheme real worthwhile.
