Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today announced the beginning of the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM), also known as Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission. A goal has been set for this project to expand everyone’s digital access to the country’s healthcare sector.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) – Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission on Monday, with the goal of transforming the healthcare industry. A goal has been set for this project to expand everyone’s digital access to the country’s healthcare sector. Under this project, the government hopes to develop an online platform for people working in the health industry, where people may get holistic healthcare and keep track of their health records and databases. Let us remind you that the Prime Minister announced the National Digital Health Campaign pilot project from the Red Fort on August 15, last year. In its initial phase, this system is being implemented in six union territories.
PM Modi used video conferencing to address the public, saying that the campaign to strengthen the country’s health facilities has been ongoing for the past seven years and is now entering a new phase. Today, a mission is being launched that has the potential to transform India’s healthcare system.
What are the advantages?
Citizens would be given a unique health ID similar to the Aadhaar under this scheme. The Prime Minister stated in his address that the Ayushman Bharat – Digital Mission will now connect the digital health solutions of hospitals across the country. The citizens of the country will now receive a digital health ID as a result of this. Every citizen’s health record will be digitally protected.
The Prime Minister stated that India is now working on a holistic, inclusive health approach. A paradigm that focuses on disease prevention, often known as preventive healthcare, makes treatment accessible, affordable, and accessible to everyone.
Based on infrastructure built for other digital efforts, NDH will create a seamless online platform for data, information, and information by providing a wide range of health-related personal information while ensuring security, confidentiality, and privacy.
The public’ approval will be required for easy access and exchange of health records under this campaign. That is, with his approval, any person can create a health record on the site. He will be able to simply access and share his records or database using this.
Each citizen will be given a Health ID that will also act as their health account, allowing their personal health records to be linked and seen via a mobile application.
The Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR) and Healthcare Facilities Registry (HFR) will operate as a unified database for all healthcare service entities, both in modern and traditional medicine, under this arrangement.
It will make it easier for doctors, hospitals, and healthcare service providers to do business.
