AIIMS Smart Card Facility for Patients

“It has been noted that patients or their attendants often travel long distances and stand in queues for making payments for various investigations and procedures or for getting snacks/food in cafeteria etc. Since majority payments are made in cash, providing balance change is also a challenge at many counters. Accordingly, it has been decided that Finance Division of AIIMS shall in collaboration with State Bank of India introduce ‘AIIMS Smart Card’ facility for patients & their attendants w.e.f. 1 April 2023,” the AIIMS said.

The premier health organization said that this service shall be seamlessly integrated with the existing billing facility in the hospital as well as arrangements shall be made for installing payment end points at multiple locations within AIIMS including in all patient care areas, cafeteria, etc.

The hospital said that once the service is stabilized, no cash payment shall be accepted at any counters other than at the ‘AIIMS Smart Card’ top up counters which shall be operationalized in multiple locations within the OPDs, Hospital and Centers and shall operate on 24×7 basis.

All payments shall be accepted at the payment end points installed at the patient location and patients or their attendants shall not be asked to visit the central registration counters to make any payments, said AIIMS.
