“Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission is transforming the healthcare sector & bringing revolutionary change to the lives of all citizens," said Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya adding that over 11,677 healthcare professionals have registered themselves under the digital mission.
Since the launch of the mission, over 40 digital health services have been incorporated into the ABDM sandbox.
“The core objective of ABDM is to leverage technology to deliver health services to remotest areas of the country. To address the lack of infrastructure and access to doctors, ABDM envisages all healthcare-related activities to move online. For this, it is imperative that we take up the onboarding of healthcare professionals and health facilities in the national registries of HPR (Healthcare Professionals Registry) and HFR (Health Facilities Registry) being built by ABDM."
- ABDM was launched in September 2021 by the Prime Minister through a video conference.
- It aims to provide digital health IDs for all Indian citizens to help hospitals, insurance firms, and citizens access health records electronically when required
NHA aims to enable healthcare technology players to bring innovative solutions to the onboard experts and facilities with fewer steps by using the published open APIs. “You can continue to educate other small players in the ABDM onboard process and raise awareness of the benefits of registering in HFR/HPR,” said Dr. RS Sharma, CEO, NHA.
The ABDM aims to develop the backbone necessary to support the integrated digital health infrastructure of the country. It will bridge the existing gap amongst different stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem through digital highways.
