The book ICMR Standard Treatment Workflows - Volume III, which covers 54 disorders under 11 specialties, and a mobile app were both released on Tuesday by Dr. Vinod K. Paul, Member (Health), NITI Aayog, according to a statement from the ICMR on Wednesday.

Prof. (Dr.) Balram Bhargava, Director General of the ICMR and Secretary of the DHR, said: "Primary care doctors, who are doing an outstanding job, are primarily responsible for providing healthcare in the outlying areas. The Standard Treatment Workflows will assist these doctors stay current and will give them general instructions on how to treat common illnesses." Paul pointed out that operational research should be used to assess the application of Standard Treatment Workflows (STWs) at different levels of the public healthcare system.
