Medchal: Inaugurating EMRI's emergency care simulation complex at Kompally in Medchal district on Saturday, Governor ESL Narasimhan described the new facility as a milestone in the State's healthcare.
"Though technology is an important component in the health care, human touch is more important and that is what GVK's EMRI is doing," he said. Speaking on the occasion, the Governor asked Health Minister Eatala Rajender to introduce a pilot project to revive the concept of family physicians.
Through '108' medical services and Basti Dhawakhanas, there was a possibility of connecting family physicians with patients, he said, adding that immediate care for patients should be at home. The GVK Emergency Management & Research Institute (EMRI) set up the Emergency Care Simulation Complex at Kompally that would equip trainees with the requisite skills and provide state-of-the-art education in emergency care.
The simulation complex has been commissioned with a financial grant received from the Tata Trusts and provides simulation-based medical education using sophisticated and technically advanced manikins and enabling students evaluate, perform and repeat the same exercises till they get a procedure right.
Labour Minister Ch Malla Reddy, Malkajgiri MP A Revanth Reddy, GVK founder-chairman GVK Reddy, Tata Trusts Trustee RK Krishna Kumar, GVK EMRI director Krishnam Raju and others were present on the occasion.
