Mizoram Opertionalizes First Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission Microsite

New Delhi: The National Health Authority (NHA) has recently announced the launch of the 100 Microsites project, which aims to accelerate the adoption of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) throughout India.

Excitingly, Mizoram has become the first state in the country to operationlize an ABDM Microsite in its capital city, Aizawl. This milestone means that all healthcare facilities, including private clinics, small hospitals, and labs in the region, will now be ABDM-enabled. Consequently, patients will have access to a range of digital health services.

Speaking on the significance of the project, CEO, NHA said, ‘The 100 Microsite project under ABDM is a very important initiative for reaching out to the bulk of small and medium scale healthcare providers from the private sector. The concept of Microsites was envisaged to provide a strong impetus to healthcare digitization efforts across the country. The efforts by Mizoram team have resulted in Aizawl becoming the first ABDM Microsite in India. NHA looks forward to similar enthusiastic response from other state teams.’

During the launch, Ms. Betsy Zothanpari Sailo, Additional Secretary, H&FW Mizoram said, ‘We firmly believe that digitization of health services can help us achieve our goal of universal health coverage. With digital services at our health facilities and secure access to digital health records, the patients shall benefit the most. Our teams made conscious efforts in closely studying the process of ABDM enablement and have selected an implementation partner to operationalize our first Microsite in Aizawl. We are all geared up to take the implementation in mission mode and ensure that the Aizawl Microsite lives up to its role as the first ABDM Microsite in the country.’

100 ABDM Microsites Projects:

  • The ABDM Microsites refer to distinct areas designated for targeted outreach efforts towards the inclusion of small and medium-sized private healthcare providers.
  • The Microsites would primarily be implemented by State Mission Directors of ABDM, with support from NHA in terms of financial resources and overall guidance.
  • An agency- Youth for Action-established within this program will deploy a dedicated team to establish direct contact with healthcare providers in the vicinity.
  • This team will spread awareness about the benefits of ABDM and will help the service providers to join the core registries under ABDM besides promoting the use of ABDM enable digital solutions for regular clinical documentation.
  • Patients will be able to link the health records generated at these facilities with their Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHAs) and will be able to view and share these records using any ABDM-enabled Personal Health Record (PHR) application on their phones (https://phr.abdm.gov.in/uhi/1231).

NHA has previously managed pilot Microsites in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Surat. The insights and experiences gained from these pilots have been integrated into the overall framework of the ABDM’s 100 Microsites project.

Besides Mizoram, other states including Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh have also made significant progress regarding implementation of ABDM Microsites.
