The integrated online appointment application and medicine inventory management processes of TEMIS (Telangana and Andhra Sub Area Ex-Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme Management Information System) was launched by TASA General Officer Commanding Maj. Gen. N. Srinivas Rao at Golden Palm Sainik Bhawan here on Wednesday.
The TEMIS is a first of its kind in the country to bring efficiency in ECHS and the project was started about 14 months ago with the support of Intellobots, a local startup, last year. It also facilitates online financial concurrence from Integrated Financial Adviser (IFA) and Controller of Defence Accounts (CDA). With Central Monitoring System (CMS) integrating WAN-based Polyclinic Management Information System, the TEMIS has become complete in all respects, a press release said.
“TASA ECHS MIS will bring revolutionary changes in ECHS management by bringing in transparency. TASA is committed to serve soldiers and veterans of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to make their lives easier,” said Maj. Gen. Rao.
Facilities like veteran cell, ECHS polyclinic, ECHS dental centre, CSD canteen, cafeteria and transit facilities for all ranks have also been created, he mentioned.
Capt. V Lakshmikantha Rao (retd), MP, appreciated the efforts made by TASA to develop TEMIS. He claimed that the Telangana government stood first in the country by enhancing cash grants to gallantry award winners. Work on Sainik Bhavan in Nizamabad was completed, while those in Khammam, Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda were still under-construction.
About 175 veterans and widows of World War-II are being provided with ₹6,000 monthly pension, while dual family pension policy has been implemented in the State.
On the occasion, a state-of-the-art pharmacy supported by Synchrony Financial under diversity and inclusion initiative was also inaugurated.
The GOC felicitated officials of Intellobots, Synchrony Financial, Sainik Welfare Department and Telangana IT Department for their contribution towards the welfare of veterans. Cash awards were also given away to some select staff.
