Under this, every citizen will now get a digital health ID and health records digitally protected
A campaign of strengthening health facilities that had been going for the last seven years was entering a new phase today, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi while launching the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission.
The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission would now connect the digital health solutions of hospitals across the country with each other.
A release issued by the Central Government stressed that the mission would not only make the processes of hospitals simplified but also increase ease of living. Under this, every citizen would now get a digital health ID and health records digitally protected.
The Prime Minister highlighted that India was working on a health model that was holistic and inclusive. It also stressed on preventive healthcare and, in case of disease, easy, affordable and accessible treatment. Unprecedented reforms in health education was on. A much larger number of doctors and para-medical manpower was being created now compared to 7-8 years ago.
A comprehensive network of AIIMS and other modern health institutions is being established in the country and work on establishing one medical college in every three Lok Sabha constituencies is going on.
Mr. Modi emphasised on strengthening the health facilities in villages. He pointed to the strengthening of primary health centre networks and wellness centres. More than 80,000 such centres have already been operationalised.
