Fireside Chat: India’s National Digital Health Ecosystem — Origins and Continuation
This is an online event.
The National Health Policy (NHP) 2017 defined the vision of ‘health and wellbeing for all at all ages’, with continuum of care as a concept strongly advocated by the policy. Citizen-centricity, quality of care, better access, universal health coverage, and inclusiveness are some of the key principles on which the NHP is founded, all of which can be realized by leveraging the power of digital technologies. Given India’s size and diversity, this mammoth task requires a holistic, comprehensive, and interoperable digital architecture crafted and adopted by all stakeholders.
In this fireside chat, hear how the Committee, constituted by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, recognized the need to create a framework for a National Digital Health Eco‐system (NDHE) – an eco‐system and not a system. The result is the National Digital Health Blueprint (NDHB), which in addition to being an architectural vision, provides specific guidance on implementation. Dr. Pankaj Gupta will share more about creation of the NDHB along with specifics on how it is being implemented with payers and providers alike.
