Delhi health scheme 10 times better than Ayushman Bharat CM to Centre

first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday wrote to Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan saying his government’s health scheme was “ten times bigger and comprehensive” than the Centre’s Ayushman Bharat scheme.”A good health scheme is already implemented in Delhi. Stopping it and implementing another will not benefit anyone. If Delhi’s Health Scheme is stopped and Ayushman Bharat Yojana implemented, residents will be affected,” Arvind Kejriwal said in his letter to Harsh Vardhan.

Listing the ‘advantages’ of Delhi Health Scheme over Modi government’s flagship Ayushman Bharat Yojana, Kejriwal said that Delhi already enjoys a 10 times better scheme. Ayushman Bharat scheme is available to only those with income less than Rs 10,000 per month, whereas the minimum wage of a daily labourer in Delhi is higher than that, Arvind Kejriwal argued in his letter, adding that the existing scheme extends health benefits to all 2 crore citizens of the national capital.

In the letter, Delhi Chief Minister claimed that despite Ayushman Bharat Yojana, people from neighbouring states still come to Delhi government hospitals for health treatments. Implementation of Ayushman Bharat has become another bone of contention between the Modi government at the Centre and Kejriwal government in Delhi. Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari has frequently blamed Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government for the alleged failure to implement Ayushman Bharat scheme in the national capital. The Chief Minister further pointed out that Central and Delhi governments’ shared objective to provide good health care to the citizens should be achieved, no matter through which scheme. Arguing his case further, he reminds Dr. Harsh Vardhan that Delhi’s health programme has been praised internationally and even several big international personalities have inspected and endorsed it. Finally, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal requested Union health minister to help make capital’s health scheme better by pointing out shortcomings, if any, as a competent and experienced doctor.last_img read more

Wave of smarter data collection could transform how Canada does business IDC

by David Paddon, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 16, 2014 12:47 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A new wave of intelligent sensors, cameras and tracking devices is expected to sweep across Canada over the next few years, quickly transforming how business is done — much as smartphones took communications to a new level of performance.The forecast prepared by IDC Canada and funded by Telus Corp. (TSX:T) shows companies are prepared to dramatically increase spending to collect and analyse data on complex issues like city traffic flows, pipeline safety and health care.Tony Olvet, IDC Canada’s group vice-president for research, says Canada is just beginning a period of rapid industrial-scale innovation that will have far-reaching implications, not only for many industries but also for cities and hospitals.“We’ve been able to communicate over phone lines for over a century but the capabilities that are in a smartphone far surpass voice communication . . . If you take that as a parallel into industrial or commercial machinery, that’s what we’re looking at today.”“The ability to analyse, predict and make changes in real-time to a process . . . those are the things we see as new and valuable to businesses.”IDC estimates that $21 billion will be spent on such projects in 2018, up from $5.6 billion last year.Olvet based his remarks on IDC’s interviews with representatives of about 209 Canadian organizations that it considered a representative sample of large and mid-sized companies. About two-thirds of the companies had at least 500 employees. Regionally, the study included 90 Ontario companies, 69 from the West and 50 from Atlantic Canada and Quebec.About 13 per cent of the respondents to the IDC study were working on what’s been called the Internet of Things, or IoT, which refers to intelligent, controllable devices that are usually connected by wireless communications.An additional 30 per cent of the respondents were planning to adopt that type of technology within two years — often planning to make small, easy steps that provide a quick payoff.“Some of them will be short projects and some could take a number of years to roll out but have a very long-term lifespan and have an economic impact that’s quite wide,” Olvet said.For example, Humber River Hospital in western Toronto is designing digital technology into its building from the outset in order to improve energy usage and medical treatment.“Many of the innovations that they’re building into that hospital are examples of the Internet of Things,” Olvet said.Telus vice-president Jim Senko said the Vancouver-based company — one of the country’s biggest telecom service providers — sees IoT-related services and technology as “one of a number of emerging businesses that will provide new growth for us and it will be meaningful.”He said the Telus wireless communications network is one of its most obvious assets but added that its secure data centres are another and a third is its expertise in system design and installation.“I think we have all the skills in different parts of our organization and what we’re doing is putting it together and focusing it on IoT,” Senko said.Telus is only one of the companies that has said recently that they are gearing up for the Internet of Things, which is machine-to-machine technology, and the Internet of Everything (IoE), which refers to machine-to-machine (M2M), person-to-machine (P2M), and person-to-person (P2P) connections.California-based Cisco Systems (Nasdaq:CSCO), which is the world’s largest maker of computer-networking equipment, is planning to open an Internet of Everything Innovation Centre in Toronto, one of four locations around the world. It expects to spend $100 million over a decade on the initiative including infrastructure, technology, staffing and operational costs.-Follow @DavidPaddon on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.
