Ms Gita Sabharwal, Resident Coordinator, visited the #Pattani Hospital, the new normal pilot hospital, this morning.
The “new normal” medical services model – the “Pattani model” is an innovation developed in the wake of #COVID19. As part of the model, patients with different diseases are classified into three 'traffic light' groups – green, red and yellow – based on the need for direct medical care and risk of COVID-19 infection. Patients that do not need to visit the healthcare facility are supported by remote consultation (telemedicine) and drugs are delivered to them, often by village volunteers. Arrangements for patients that need to visit healthcare facilities are modified, taking into account the patient pathway and the need to maintain physical distancing. When more intensive care is required, services have been made safer for patients and health care providers – such as upgraded ventilation within facilities.
