eChanneling, the largest doctor channeling network in Sri Lanka, along with Mobitel and the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) have embarked on a national endeavour, ‘eChanneling for Government Hospitals’. This is a service provided for OPD time reservation at government hospitals. This project is conducted under the guidance of the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure and Foreign Employment as well as the ICTA.

The project targets to build a healthier nation by upgrading the existing healthcare system in Sri Lanka and enhancing its position in global rankings. This partnership will vastly facilitate smooth access to medical care for the patients of government hospital. eChanneling believes this service offer greater convenience for government hospital patients and save time as well as energy spent on waiting in queues.

Patients can make OPD time reservations via 075 225 225 from any network without any hassle and the service is offered free of charge. Reservations can also be done via the eChanneling website and eChanneling mobile application. This initiative is supposed to help the hospitals to better utilise physical infrastructure and human resources more efficiently and effectively.

The facility will be launched islandwide in the future as national endeavour to revolutionise the healthcare sector and build a healthier nation.
