Monitoring and Evaluation :
Information relating to transactions that take place each day at each hospital is sent through a phone line to a district server. A separate set of pre-formatted tables are generated for the insurer and for the government respectively. This allows the insurer to track claims, transfer funds to the hospitals and investigate in the case of suspicious claim patterns through on-site audits. GIZ company has been entrusted with the responsibility of carrying out the audit for all the Social Security schemes carried by the Government of India.
RajaRajeswari Medical College and Hospital has been listed as the number one Hospital in Bangalore giving all the facilities and treatment to the BPL card holding families by using maximum facility of the RSBY.
