According to National Health Authority and Ayushman Bharat Chairman Indu Bhushan, the National Digital Health Mission is ready for a statewide implementation shortly. He added at the Bangalore Tech Summit that the digital health initiative has been launched in six Union Territories of the nation and would soon be deployed across the country.
“The healthcare industry is rapidly growing in India, and the country is on the verge of becoming a digital health nation. He stated that the new digital health program’s objective is to give residents access to and cheap medical health services “Bhushan explained.
Approximately 50 crore individuals have been insured under the Ayushman Bharat Universal Health Insurance plan in the last year, accounting for over half of the country’s population.
According to Bhushan, the insurance policy provides medical health coverage of up to Rs 5 lakh per household across 24,000 networked facilities. He said that transactions worth Rs 17,000 crore have been completed, covering treatment for 1.4 crore patients under the Ayushman Bharat initiative.
Ayushman Bharat is a 100% transaction-based model that works on powerful IT systems without compromising security and privacy, which is appropriate given the scheme’s size of operation. According to him, the insurance plan is data-driven, and all gateways are linked to the apps.
As the government prepares for the National Digital Health Mission, he said the IT foundation is being enhanced and made more scalable.
