PRADHAN MANTRI DIGITAL HEALTH MISSION TO BE LAUNCHED BY PM

Context:

In a landmark initiative, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will launch the Pradhan Mantri Digital Health Mission (PM-DHM) on 27 September 2021 with a video conference.

About the National Digital Health Mission:

  • The pilot project for the National Digital Health Mission had been announced by the Prime Minister from the walls of Red Fort on August 15, 2020.
  • Currently, PM-DHM is being implemented in the pilot phase in 6 Union Territories.
  • Based on the foundations of Jan Dhan, Aadhaar and Mobile (JAM) and other digital government programs, PM-DHM will build a seamless online platform by providing a variety of information, data and infrastructure services, utilizing open, interactive, level-based systems, ensuring the security, privacy and confidentiality of health-related personal information.
  • The mission will allow access to and exchange of long-distance health records with their permission.

Key Components:

  • PM-DHM's main components include the health ID for every citizen that will also work as their health account, where health records can be linked and viewed with the help of the mobile app; Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR) and Healthcare Facilities Registries (HFR) which will serve as a repository for all health care providers in both modern and traditional medicine systems. This will ensure the ease of doing business with doctors/hospitals and health service providers.
