  • The pilot project of the National Digital Health Mission was announced by PM Modi during his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort on August 15, 2020.
  • It has the potential of bringing a revolutionary change in India’s health facilities, PM said
  • Under the mission, every citizen would get a digital health ID and their health records would be digitally protected.
  • The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission would now connect the digital health solutions of hospitals across the country with each other.
  • A Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR) and Healthcare Facilities Registries (HFR) that will act as a repository of all healthcare providers across both modern and traditional systems of medicine. 
  • The Mission will enable access and exchange of longitudinal health records of citizens with their consent.
  • It will create interoperability within the digital health ecosystem, similar to the role played by the Unified Payments Interface in revolutionizing payments.
