As part of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), the National Health Authority (NHA) has launched a Digital Health Incentive Scheme (DHIS) to encourage the use of digital health solutions. The plan offers monetary incentives to hospitals, clinics, diagnostic laboratories, and digital health solution providers for utilizing advanced digital solutions that make and connect digital health records to the Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA).

The following areas of digital health solution adoption are the focus of the DHIS:

  • Telemedicine.
  • Electronic Health Records (EHRs).
  • Health Information Exchange (HIE).
  • Mobile Health.
  • AI (artificial intelligence) in healthcare.

The incentives under the DHIS depend on the number of digital health transactions performed by the medical care offices. The higher the number of these digital health transactions, the higher the incentives they earn.

Digital health solution providers, diagnostic labs, and hospitals can all benefit greatly from the DHIS's potential to enhance the quality of Indian healthcare delivery. These organizations have the potential to boost productivity, cut costs, and enhance patient care by implementing digital health solutions.

Benefits of adopting Digital Health Incentive Scheme

India's goal of establishing a national digital health ecosystem is made possible by the DHIS. The plan will make digital health solutions more readily available to patients and encourage health facilities to implement them by offering financial incentives. It has the potential to transform the Indian healthcare industry and is a positive step in the right direction. The plan is probably going to be a triumph and will assist with accomplishing the objective of universal health coverage in India.
