TNMC registered doctors to get encrypted certificates

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Medical Council (TNMC) has reportedly decided to issue encrypted certificates to TNMC registered doctors that will allow patients to use a mobile app to swipe the certificate and verify details of the doctor to ensure they are not quacks.

According to TNMC president Dr P Balakrishnan, the smart name board would have the doctor’s name, a photograph, their registration number with the TNMC, their qualifications and specialty along with the TNMC’s emblem.

“There will also be an SMS number –56767 — and if patients text the registration number displayed on the board to this number, all details of the doctor will be sent to them. This can also be done by scanning a QR code that will be on the smart name board,” Dr Balakrishnan has been quoted by The Hindu as saying.
