e-Upkaran Equipment Maintenance & Management System (EMMS)

The MoHFW, Government of India, has observed during various assessments that at any point of time, 13%-34% of the equipment has been lying dysfunctional across the public health facilities in the country. Fully functional Medical Devices are crucial for efficient and sustainable Health Care System as they aid in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness and diseases.

Keeping equipment functional with minimal 'down-time' has been a challenge especially in remote locations. However, appropriate utilization of technologies including automated software solution and maintenance protocols can maximize the service life of medical equipment and thereby providing affordable healthcare solution to the public/ users.

To assist this objective e-Upkaran a web based Equipment Maintenance & Management System (EMMS) has been developed by CDAC.

It is currently implemented for monitoring and management of Medical Equipment in few states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, J&K, Bihar, Telangana, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat etc. The same is in process of implementation in Nagaland, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.
