Overview of Specialist Advice System

There is a pressing need to expand specialist capacities nationwide by enabling experts to diagnose and treat straightforward cases with the help of the doctor at the primary healthcare centre ( the general pediatrician at the OPD Clinic).

This program does not make specialists available to patients. This is a specialist advice system only for the use of doctors.

The Specialist Advice System for General Pediatrics clinics enables early diagnosis, local treatment & management of straightforward cases and timely referrals under specialist advice.

The system includes: 

▪  Tools to identify red flags that may need specialist advice. 

▪  Specialist advice for all paediatric subspecialties. 

Enabling General Pediatrics clinics with:

▪  Capabilities for early diagnosis and local treatment under specialist advice.

▪  Timely referrals as advised by the specialist.

The specialist advice system is customized and adapted for pediatrics with IAP’s advice by Protean (formerly NSDL e-Gov), India’s leading eGovernance institution.

This transformative initiative aims to transform India’s healthcare by expanding specialist capacity and bringing specialist care to outpatient clinics
