New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday announced the launch of the National Digital Health Mission under which every Indian will get a health ID that will store the individual’s medical records.
He was speaking at the Red Fort on the occasion of India’s 74th Independence Day.
The Mission aims at reducing problems in receiving medical treatment in various health facilities in the country.
“From today, a big campaign is being launched in which technology will play a big role. The National Digital Health Mission is being launched today. This will bring a new revolution in India’s health sector and it will help reduce problems in getting treatment with the help of technology,” he said.
“Every Indian will be given a health ID. This health ID will work as each Indian’s health account,” Modi said.
In the citizen’s health ID, every test, disease and diagnosis and medical reports along with medicines will be stored. Any issues related to these will be sorted out through National Digital Health Mission.
