About Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission
The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, launched on September 27, 2021, aims to enhance the accessibility and equity of health services through IT and associated technologies. It adopts a citizen-centric approach to support existing health systems. The mission envisions creating a digital health ecosystem to achieve universal health coverage efficiently, affordably, and safely.
Expected benefits include improved efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of health services, providing individuals with choices to access both public and private healthcare, and granting healthcare professionals better access to patient medical history for enhanced care delivery.
Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission holds promise to greatly enhance health service delivery
effectiveness, efficiency, and transparency.

Patients will be able to securely store and access their medical records, they will also be share them with health care providers which will ensure appropriate treatment and follow-up. Individuals will have access to more accurate information on private as well as public health facilities and service providers. Moreover, patients can access health services remotely through tele-consultation and e-pharmacy.

Health care professionals will have better access to patient’s medical history to provide a better and effective health solutions. ABDM will digitize the claims process and enable faster reimbursements

The ABDM will enable Policy makers to have better access to data to take an informed decision. Better quality & accessibility of macro and micro-level data will enable advanced analytics, usage of health-biomarkers and a much better preventive healthcare. It will empower the government to have a geography and demography-based monitoring and appropriate decision making, eventually design and strengthen implementation of health programmes and policies.

The researchers will be able to access aggregated information as they will be able to study and evaluate the effectiveness of various programmes and interventions. ABDM would facilitate a comprehensive feedback loop between researchers, policymakers, and providers.
Digital Health Incentives Scheme (DHIS)
Since the launch of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), digital health records have seen significant growth. However, many still rely on non-digital healthcare services, indicating a need for further digitization across India.
To boost digital health transactions, the National Health Authority (NHA) introduced the Digital Health Incentive Scheme (DHIS) for healthcare providers.
Through DHIS, doctors can digitize patient health records and earn incentives of up to ₹4 crores.
Furthermore, DHIS encourages makers of digital health software, such as Hospital/Health Management Information System (HMIS) and Laboratory Management Information System (LMIS), to offer their solutions at fair and affordable prices.
