CM to launch 10BedICU Project today

Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio would launch the 10BedICU wards across 12 district hospitals and the Tele ICU Hub at Naga Health Authority, Kohima on Friday.
The 10 Bed ICU Project is an innovative Public Private Partnership project between the department of health and family welfare, government of Nagaland, and 10BedICU partner NGOs (eGov Foundation and Karuna Trust) led by eGov Foundation.
The Project was launched in June 2021 as a response to the devastation caused by the COVID 19-second wave.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on July 21, 2021 between the Nagaland Health department and 10BedICU partner NGOs (eGov Foundation and Karuna Trust).
The 10BedICU is being implemented in eight states including Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Manipur, Assam, Nagaland, Sikkim and Meghalaya. 200 ICU units have been set up across the project states. The Tele-ICU Hub and spoke model is showing promising signs of evolving into a transformation healthcare model, especially in resource constraint and remote locations.
