  • 25 Aug 2023

Recently, the National Health Authority (NHA) declared that Aizawl, the capital city of Mizoram, has achieved a milestone by becoming the inaugural state in India to roll out the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission’s (ABDM) microsite initiative.

Key Points:

  • Pioneering Digital Healthcare Outreach: NHA has recently introduced the concept of microsites as part of its digital health mission scheme.
  • These microsites are designated geographical regions where focused efforts are directed towards enlisting small and medium scale private healthcare providers, fostering digital health adoption.
  • Mizoram's Achievement: The project aims to empower healthcare establishments, including private clinics, small hospitals, and laboratories, with ABDM-enabled capabilities to deliver digital health services to patients.
  • Boosting Nationwide Digitization: The concept of microsites is designed to significantly drive the digitization of healthcare services across India, as per NHA's vision.
  • Collaborative Implementation: Microsite implementation is primarily undertaken by the state Mission Directors of ABDM, with NHA providing financial resources and comprehensive guidance.
  • An interfacing agency operates on the ground, raising awareness about ABDM benefits and facilitating the integration of healthcare providers into the mission's core registries.
  • Enhanced Patient Experience: Patients can link health records generated at these facilities with their Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHAs).
  • They can view and share these records through ABDM-enabled Personal Health Record (PHR) applications on their mobile devices.
