As per the new facility, the patients can register themselves through online system. They will get the information about the availability of beds through SMS.
It is worth mentioning that around 10,000 patients visit the AIIMS OPD daily, while the premier institute has only 2,400 beds for patients. The patients have to wait for months for surgeries.
However, AIIMS has already an online system of booking appointments with doctors over phone. The appointments are done by an automated voice response system.
If a patient makes a phone call through cellphone, he/she will get an SMS confirming the appointment. The patient needs to call on 9266092660, select the department, give choice of doctor, if any and dates.
