December 30, 2022: India is releasing a beta version of the hospital management information system, focusing on private clinics and smaller health facilities.

The National Health Authority, the apex body responsible for implementing India’s flagship public health insurance and assurance scheme called “Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana,” aims to build a new information system for a digital infrastructure in the country. 

The system allows doctors to generate and access ABHA (Ayushman Bharat Health Account) for their patients, allowing them to manage their calendars, appointments, and patient details in a single window.

The digital platform helps doctors to view previous health records for registered patients and take video consultations. It also allows doctors to generate and share standardised digital prescriptions using a range of parameters with options to modify or customise the medication.

Healthcare providers can use the new solution, share their feedback, and play a role in shaping India’s digital healthcare ecosystem, according to a government statement.

It will incorporate feedback from healthcare providers into the software to make it more robust.

Beta-testing workshop

To increase adoption and seek feedback on the HMIS from healthcare providers across the country, NHA will organise a virtual beta-testing workshop on January 4, 2023, for healthcare companies to provide their suggestions.

The National Health Authority has been entrusted with designing strategy, building technological infrastructure and implementing a “National Digital Health Mission” to create a National Digital Health Eco-system.

The body’s key responsibilities include developing models for self-financing of the National Digital Health Mission, implementing policies and decisions approved by the Mission Steering Group and Empowered Committee and capacity building of various stakeholders for health informatics.
