Multi-stakeholder meet by National Health Authority

New Delhi: The National Health Authority (NHA) organized a Multi-stakeholder meeting in New Delhi, bringing together NHA leadership, State ABDM teams, Development Partners, Interface Agencies, and Digital Solution Companies involved in ABDM-enabled software. Dr. Basant Garg, Additional CEO, NHA & Mission Director, ABDM, launched a mobile application for field-level functionaries and a login-based dashboard for monitoring at National, State, and Microsite levels to support the implementation and monitoring of ABDM Microsites.

 

In July 2023, NHA initiated the 100 Microsites Project under ABDM to promote digital health adoption, enhancing accessibility to healthcare, especially in the private sector. A Microsite, in the ABDM context, comprises small and medium-scale clinics, nursing homes, hospitals (<10 bedded), labs, pharmacies, and other ABDM-enabled healthcare facilities providing digital health services. Currently, 29 ABDM Microsites are active across 10 states/UTs. During the event, Sh. Ranjan Kumar, Secretary (Health) and State Mission Director, ABDM, Uttar Pradesh, announced the establishment of 35 more microsites in UP, bringing the total to 64 microsites nationwide.

 

Dr Basant Garg, Additional CEO, NHA & Mission Director, ABDM said “Our learnings from the ABDM Microsites pilots have given us insights into the challenges faced by the smaller health facilities and the apprehensions of the patients in adopting digital health services. Together with our development partners, state teams and other stakeholders, we are focusing on micro-level trainings for capacity building of our field teams and more effective awareness material to communicate about the benefits of digital services enabled by ABDM.”
