Abstract

A study was undertaken during November 2005 to October 2006 to assess about utilization aspects of ICTC at a tertiary care teaching hospital and a government district hospital in Karnataka. The average monthly numbers of persons visiting ICTC per month at the tertiary care teaching hospital (509) were higher than that of Government district hospital (222). However, the average monthly number of direct walk-in persons and follow up, attending the centre at district hospital were higher than that of teaching hospital. Thus optimal use of information, education and communication (IEC) techniques needs to be strengthened to improve the utilization of ICTC services at the tertiary care teaching hospital.
