The Assam government launched a healthcare facility under which patients will be able to seek tips from doctors round-the-clock on an emergency telephone number. The emergency helpline 104 was inaugurated by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. For the service, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the government and Health Management Research Institute, a non-profit making healthcare facility provider based in Andhra Pradesh. Assam has become the second Indian state after Andhra Pradesh to have this call-a-doctor facility and the idea is to provide instant help to a patient or their families, Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
