Dr.A.S.Arul MD DM
TVMCH -Affiliate Hospital,
Tirunelveli Medical College.
Welcome, I am proud to see that all members of our TVMC Hospital Community are actively pursuing their specific spheres of work and specialization with a positive attitude. This is evident from the consistently increasing foot falls and increasing demands by our patients for our services. From the moment patients enter our Hospital, our staff will welcome them with a smile and treat them with courtesy. Our staff shall efficiently guide all the patients all the way from registration to discharge. This is what we propose to call as the “Complete Clinical Experience”, a concept that will help us assert as a community called the “TVMC-ian” and sustain our developmental goals. This program of “CCE” shall guide us through the days to come to enrich us as individuals, groups, departments and as the unified TVMC community. Under the new and changing scenario of Corporate Medicare, with terms like PPP/POP gaining spotlight, our needs for more patient beds and more space in our Hospital, and our commitment to continual development is an evident reality. To follow the footsteps of our former Deans, I promise my community that I will always cherish the gracious support of our Medical, Nursing, Paramedical and Basic Staff, in our effort for ethical, quality medical services. I hence again highlight our concept “Complete Clinical Experience” which I believe strongly will help us to be recognized as a modern hospital. To Quote Sir Walter Elliot: “ Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another”
Medical & Health Schemes
This is a lofty Insurance Scheme launched by the Tamil Nadu State Government through the United India Insurance Company Ltd (a Public Sector Insurer headquartered at Chennai) to provide free medical and surgical treatment in Government and Private hospitals to the members of any family whose annual family income is less than Rs.72,000/- (as certified by the Village Administrative Officers) .The Scheme provides coverage for meeting all expenses relating to hospitalization of beneficiary as defined in the Scope of the Scheme.
The scheme seeks to provide cashless hospitalisation facility for certain specified ailments/ procedures. The scheme provides a coverage up to Rs.1,00,000/- per family per year on a floater basis for the ailments and procedures covered under the Annexure ‘C’.
For certain specified ailments and procedures of critical nature, which are listed under Annexure ‘D’ in the Scheme, the overall limit is increased from Rs.1,00,000/- to Rs.1,50,000/-
There are 2 other covers other than the hospitalisation benefits under Annexure ‘C’ & ‘D’ available under the Scheme. They are a) Follow-up Treatment as listed under Annexure ‘E’& b) Additional Diagnostic procedures listed under Annexure ‘F’
AVAILING THE BENEFITS
Free health camps / screening camps will be conducted by network hospitals as per the directions given by Project Director of Tamil Nadu Health Systems Society. Minimum of one camp per month per empanelled hospital will be held in the districts in each policy year. The persons who need treatment are identified in the Health camps. Such patients can approach the hospital in the network and follow the guidelines below:
A new Health Insurance identity card with biometrics is being issued to all those members who have been holding the smart cards in the earlier scheme. Till such time new cards are issued the public can use the earlier smart (Health) cards
This card should be shown at the Assistance Counter established at the empanelled hospital.
After due verification of the details and authenticating the identity of the patient by the Liaison Officer, the necessary Pre-authorisation request for cashless facility will be submitted by the DMO of the hospital.
The Project Office will approve the request on authentication of the identity and provided the procedure planned is within the Scheme Even those patients who have the smart cards, though not identified through the Health Camps can also avail the benefit as above
Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and New born Care services (CEmONC)
Under the Tamilnadu Health Systems Project Maternal and Infant mortality data revealed that 75% of maternal deaths occurs during intra partum (during delivery) and post partum (just after delivery) and 25% occurs in ante partum (before childbirth) periods. The most common issue was assessed to be delay or not in the transfer of patients to bigger centers when the situation demanded. Covering distances at such a critical stage was fatal, especially from the rural segments of the community. Under this project, TVMCH has been made the nodal center for referrals and assessment of maternal fetal outcome in our community and neighboring districts. We have a ‘Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care’ Center” being built at a cost of Sixty Million INR... Read More
