Here is an important piece of information about Doctors’ Day.
We have an International Doctors’ Day as well which falls on 30th March of every year. Plus, Doctors’ Day is celebrated on different dates in different countries.
Doctor’s Day in India is celebrated on July 1st to honor the birth and death anniversary of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. Dr. Roy was a renowned physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, India. He was born on July 1, 1882, and passed away on the same date in 1962.
Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy made significant contributions to the field of medicine and played a vital role in the development of healthcare in India. He was instrumental in establishing various medical institutions and implementing several healthcare reforms. In recognition of his immense contributions and selfless service to society, the Government of India designated July 1st as Doctor’s Day to commemorate his achievements and express gratitude to the medical fraternity for their invaluable services to the nation.
Check the below WikiPedia article to check the date on which Doctors’ Day is celebrated in other countries.
Hospital Staff have a hard time managing patients and creating the required documents like Hospital Bill, Discharge Card and so on.
To solve this issue, we have introduced Templatized Discharge Summaries. Many a times, the Discharge Summary is usually the same for similar type of Diagnosis. These repetitiveness of Discharge Summary is used to our benefit while creating the template. This avoids recurring entry of same data by the staff.
See how quickly a Discharge Summary can be created:
This solution just gives a way for the staff to carefully draft the Discharge Summary based on treatment course in the hospital without missing out on any details. The Discharge Summary can be freely changed from patient to patient as necessary. However, the repetitive items in the Discharge Summary can be reviewed and then kept or removed or modified based on case by case basis.
Discharge Summary is one of the most important document to possess while getting out of the Hospital for following reasons:
It is a summarized reference to the treatment given in the Hospital.
It can be used for future treatment course anywhere else.
It will be used for settlement of insurance bills.
Based on our experience while working with Hospitals, we have seen that Discharge Summary requires an update even after the patient is discharged from the Hospital for following reasons:
Reason # 1: Missing Details
It may happen that the Hospital Staff failed to add certain details of treatment to the Discharge Summary at the time of discharge only to realize that later.
Reason # 2: Incorrect wording
At times, choice of words adds ambiguity to the details entered in Discharge Summary. In such cases, insurance company asks the patient to get the Discharge Summary updated again removing the ambiguity.
Patients then visit the Hospital again requesting an update to the Discharge Summary.
Reason # 3: Miscellaneous changes
Any other changes that the Doctor or Hospital Staff deems required for the completeness or correctness of Discharge Summary.
How does MyOPD Hospital Software handle Discharge Summary updates?
MyOPD Hospital Software handles the updates to Discharge Summary in the following way:
Allow only admin users to update the Discharge Summary:
This is very important. Only the admin should be able to update the Discharge Summary post the Discharge of the patient. This way, only authorized personnel can make the required changes.
Capture the change reason for the update to Discharge Summary:
This is also an extremely IMPORTANT option. It allows the admin to capture why the Discharge Summary was updated. While viewing the updated version, this change reason is always shown.
Capture admin details who updated the Discharge Summary and date time of update:
When the Discharge Summary is updated post discharge, MyOPD Captures the login details of the admin account responsible for making the update along with date and time.
This way the Hospital Admin can know which admin account changed what and when.
While using MyOPD Hospital Software, the Hospital Staff will be able to see the latest version of Discharge Summary along with the previous obsolete versions as well.
This way, we try to keep the interest of Patients as well as the Doctors in balance.

Online Consultation provides below direct advantages to the Doctors:
Helps to get new patients who end up looking for you on the internet
Helps to avoid unnecessary visits of existing patients
Provides a formal mechanism for patients to pay and consult for services which don’t require seeing the patient.
In this post, we provide ways in which Online Consultation can be used by Doctors using MyOPD Software Platform:
How to make best use of online consultation clinic platform for your own benefit?
# 1: Health questions from your own patients via Online Consultation
Many Doctors are troubled by consistent questions from their patients over WhatsApp. Not answering them also creates an incorrect impression. How about having a way where you direct your patients to a platform where you can answer them and also get paid?
Start telling your patients to contact you via your own Online Consultation Clinic when they have questions about their health. It is always better that our patients contact their trusted Doctor than someone else on the internet for their regular questions.
# 2: Discussing Investigation Reports
Many times, patients have to just discuss the investigation reports with Doctors. If no clinical examination of the patient is required, you can ask such patients to discuss them in the online consultation clinic instead of regular clinic. This way, patient can avoid a visit to the clinic and continue with the modified treatment based on the PDF prescription you share from MyOPD Software.
# 3: Consulting your own patients who are traveling
We don’t realize, however, many of our existing patients keep traveling and getting sick. It is always better for them to get in touch with their existing Doctor for their complaints. You can offer online consultation to such patients who need your help while they are away from your city.

Yes. We see that people who charge for service are serious about the service. So you should charge.
Based on the charges you set, MyOPD collects the patient’s payments using Debit Card / Credit Card / Net Banking / UPI and settles them into your account after deducting the payment gateway charges. MyOPD does not earn money for your consultations.
Should I have Online Consultation Clinic time separate than my regular clinic time?
It is better to have a separate time if possible. You can have a dedicated 30 minute slot at a minimum.
This way, you will know for sure that online consultations have to be done in that dedicated time rather than juggling them during the busy clinic hours.
MyOPD books online appointments on first come first serve basis. Patients are added to a online queue. This way, Doctors get free once all the patients for online consultation are done.
Where will I see the online consultation appointments?
Currently, you will receive an email when patients book an appointment. Plus, you will see them in your online profile at Profile -> My Online Profile in MyOPD Windows Application.
Soon you will start seeing online consultation appointments in the newly developed MyOPD Desktop companion app.

Many times, patients demand a Hospital Bill in the middle of treatment to get an idea of the expense on the treatment till that time. Such a bill given by Hospital is known as Provisional Hospital Bill.
Reasons to give a Provisional Hospital Bill
Patient’s demand: The patients can demand a Provisional Hospital Bill midway during the stay to understand the charges incurred so far on the treatment.
Transparency in Billing: Giving a provisional bill when required by the patient brings about a transparency in the Hospital operations. Patients know exactly what they are being charged for on a day to day basis.
Hospital billing process: Certain Hospital follow billing process where they present the patients with a Provisional Bill everyday to proactively give patients an idea of the treatments done till date.
How does a Provisional Bill Look?
Provisional Hospital Bill looks very similar to a Final Hospital Bill. However, there are some important points to be noted.
Provisional Hospital Bill has a heading as Provisional Bill clearly mentioning that this Bill is a temporary bill and not Final.
Most of the times the patient is still admitted. So Discharge Date is not available on the bill.
Items in Provisional Bill are temporary and Subject to change based on revision by Hospital if required. The Hospital Staff can print a sample bill and get it reviewed from seniors before making it final.
Provisional Hospital Bill is an important document that a Hospital can offer to their patients as required. Having a software that allows Hospitals to print a Provisional Bill is certainly required by Hospitals. MyOPD Hospital Software allows Hospitals to print a Provisional Hospital Bill.
