The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) has been the sole focus of the NHA, having made strides and changes to India's healthcare system. The integration with HMIS is a new way of revolutionizing the healthcare sector of India.

How far we've come

The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, launched in 2022, changed the way technology and healthcare interacted. Moreover, it changed the way India experienced healthcare. With the incorporation of the Health Management Information System (HMIS), the mission takes a giant leap forward in achieving its objectives. The HMIS serves as the digital backbone, facilitating the efficient management of healthcare data, and data analytics, ensuring seamless information exchange, and optimizing resource allocation.

The digital backbone

At its core, the HMIS enables healthcare providers to efficiently collect, store, and analyze patient data in a standardized and secure manner. Through the integration with the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, this data becomes readily accessible to authorized healthcare professionals and administrators across the country. It empowers them to make informed decisions, track patient histories, monitor treatment outcomes, and identify areas for improvement in healthcare delivery. The latest form of this technology can be seen in the new Scan & Share scheme where individuals can scan specific QR codes to directly share their health profile with healthcare providers, eliminating the margin for error. Schemes and models like this have changed the way the health systems operate and how they serve patients. With HMIS, efficiency is the name of the game.


Additionally, HMIS contributes to the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission's goal of enabling individuals to access their health records across various digital healthcare services. With the implementation of unique patient identification systems, individuals can securely access their medical history, book appointments, and access a variety of telemedicine services. This seamless integration of healthcare information is at the forefront of ABDM's focus and HMIS makes this a reality.
