On the 25th and 26th of September 2022, the National Health Authority of India commemorated the one year success of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission(ABDM) at Arogya Manthan 2022 innovations. The two days program brought leading digital health solutions and several healthcare institutions together along with CrelioHealth’s presence at Arogya Manthan. With 500+ participants, 1000+ attendees, and 70+ speakers, the initiative shed light on the roadmap of universal health coverage. And also the adoption of comprehensive & secure digital health solutions.
In this year’s ABDM innovations at Arogya Manthan program, we demonstrated our leading cloud-based automation solutions that are custom-made for medical laboratory needs. Making healthcare diagnostics simple, smart & secure, we have been able to drive the revenue of 2500+ laboratories worldwide by up to 10x.
Joining forces with Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission at Arogya Manthan 2022, we conferenced ideas to strengthen the purpose of ABDM. In addition, we also discussed current bottlenecks and efficient new-age possibilities in healthcare diagnostics. Now, let’s explore how the collaboration will ensure a seamless patient experience with enhanced medical lab operations.
Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM): Vision & Scope
With the purpose of bridging the gap between the ever-growing healthcare industry and innovative digital solutions, the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) was launched by the National Health Authority of India on 15th August 2020.
According to NHA, India currently has 117.6 crore wireless subscribers and 78 crore internet users. It is the largest data consumer in the world with average usage of 12 GB per month. In addition, it has 129 crore unique radar digital IDs and 432 crore issued docs in Digi locker that make the creation of health IDs smooth and easy. These health IDs comprising complete patient information can simplify and accelerate diagnosis cost-effectively.
eHealth & Digital Health Solutions
eHealth or digital health solutions have proven to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of care. ABDM envisions creating a collaborative network of digital health solutions that can build a comprehensive database of patient information. This database can help in understanding & overcoming hurdles in a smooth patient experience. It can help deliver a more secure, accessible, and reliable healthcare experience, benefitting every stakeholder.
With 44.3 crore CoWin registrations, 19.9 crore Arogya Setu downloads, and 30+ million registrations on eSanjeevani OPD, implementation of a secure, interoperable, and standard-based digital systems network can be easier and more prominent for the Indian government.
ABDM & CrelioHealth: Empowering Healthcare Diagnostics
According to the official government records, India has over 100000 diagnostics laboratories and 56,352 hospitals (70% of which are private) today. With the population getting ahead 138 crores and the number of deadly diseases like COVID, the number of patients and healthcare institutions is bound to rise significantly.
Creating a network that incorporates every medical lab and hospital in the country and educating every stakeholder isn’t going to be a cakewalk. It will take some time to translate these changes across all the stages. However, Hospital Information Management Systems (HIMS) and Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are solutions that can aid help a lot.
How HMIS & LIMS Can Be Helpful For Healthcare Institutions
Ensuring the right health data exchange between individual hospitals and laboratories is an uphill task. As the data suggest, 70% of hospitals and 95% of labs are private. Many hospitals and labs lack the infrastructure that can support the advanced and complex changes the initiative aims to bring. The government is eyeing to connect such individual entities through open APIs. However, the privacy and security of health and lab information can be at stake.
HMIS and LIMS can come to the rescue. These are Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) products employed by many healthcare institutions in the country. The HMIS and LIMS service providers have to follow privacy and security guidelines before selling their products. They have the required infrastructure and data that can support ABDM. Deploying such solutions will reduce the external effort and notable amount of excessive cost of healthcare institutions. Additionally, if the government team up with HMIS and LIMS providers, it can educate thousands of hospitals and laboratories.
Integrating health IDs with LIMS and HMIS providers through open APIs and allowing secure interoperable access to patient information. This can streamline and speed up diagnostic processes across the country.
