On September 27, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission. The apparent attempt being to develop a backbone to support an integrated digital health infrastructure in the country and a healthcare ecosystem linked through digital highways. Given that any journey to universal health coverage and to provide healthcare to all, has to have a digital component crucially built into its design, Financial Express is organizing the FE Digital Health Conclave 2021 between December 9 and December 10, 2021.
It is to bring thought leaders, key opinion leaders, industry stalwarts, innovators and officials from the government agencies to deliberate upon the emerging landscape, the challenges, gains, costs and opportunities while enroute to digital transformation in healthcare.
The national digital health mission (NDHM) will be an enabler for digital health interventions like creation of digital health IDs for the Indian population and health facility registry to find hospitals online besides Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and telemedicine. The aim is to eventually enable electronic medical records (EMR) to be accessed by various systems and domain specific registries through the unified health interface (UHI) very similar to the unified payment interface (UPI).
The digital care delivery models like digital health ID will help collate health records in a horizontal manner for effective healthcare delivery. It will be a single identifier to pull relevant health records to view these records in a non-discretionary and non-sponsored manner.
Towards making the healthcare system affordable and accessible through technological intervention in India, FinancialExpress.com will also bring forth the work of 20 such innovators who have truly made a difference to the Digital Health Ecosystem in India.
