DELHI’S HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (HIMS) PROJECT

DELHI’S HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (HIMS) PROJECT

Context:

Recently, the Delhi Cabinet gave a financial nod to its ambitious Health Information Management System (HIMS) project.

Significance of the Project:

  • Under this project, each citizen will have a health card, which will be a repository of their medical information.
  • Doctors will be able to see a patient's medical history using a card and patients will be able to make appointments at home.
  • The health card will serve as a separate health identifier for each person where everything can be obtained from their medical history to the date of appointment.
  • All citizens between the ages of 1 and 18 will be provided with a health card linked to their parents' health card. All newborns (up to 1 year) will be linked to the mother's health card.
  • The citizens of Delhi along with their family members will be able to pre-register themselves for issuance of a temporary e-health card for 1 year. It will be converted to a permanent card once the citizens’ details have been validated through surveys and the required data is updated.
  • These health cards will be based on secured QR-codes or cryptographs and similar technology to contain the encrypted information about the unique identity, demographic details and key clinical information on individual citizens.
