NDHM to unleash digital health tech revolution with innovations & various services for citizens: PM Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today directed that steps be expedited to expand operations under the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM).
Mr Modi said that the NDHM will bring ease of living for citizens to avail a large number of health services.
Chairing a high level meeting to review progress of NDHM, he said, it will unleash a digital health tech revolution with innovations and various services for citizens.
Last year during his Independence Day address, Prime Minister had announced the launch of NDHM.
Since then, the digital modules and registries have been developed and the mission has been rolled out in six Union Territories.
So far, nearly 11.9 lakh Health IDs have been generated and 3106 doctors and 1490 facilities have registered on the platform.
It has been envisaged that Unified Health Interface (UHI) – an open and interoperable IT network for digital health should soon be rolled out.
This interface shall enable public and private solutions and apps to plug in and be a part of National Digital Health Ecosystem.
It will allow users to search, book and avail necessary healthcare services such as tele-consultations or laboratory tests.
