The goal of the NDHM is to improve the accessibility and efficiency of healthcare services in India and reduce the burden on the healthcare system by streamlining processes and reducing the need for in-person visits.
Pradhan Mantri Digital Health Mission (PM-DHM) and Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) are both initiatives aimed at creating a digital health ecosystem in India. Under these missions, individuals (citizens of India) can generate a unique digital health ID, which will contain all their health records.
While PM-DHM was initially implemented in a pilot phase only in the six Union Territories of India, ABDM was launched nationwide on 27th September 2021. Both missions are aimed at improving access to healthcare and enabling the exchange of health information between various stakeholders in the healthcare system.
