India is experiencing an unprecedented expansion of resources for health. The asymmetry in resource allocation (financial, human, technical) remains a major barrier to an efficient public healthcare ecosystem. Healthcare in e-Governance can identify the most promising entry points for system-level governance interventions to catalyze efficiency.
Digital is the new norm and the Government has embraced technology in driving change through various e-health initiatives and Digital Health programs, such as Health Management Information System (HMIS), Online Registration System (ORS) and SEHAT. With Mobile Health initiatives such as Vaccine Tracker, Swasth Bharat, ANMOL, Kilkari, India Fights Dengue etc., community-based programs at various levels have seen a fair amount of success. Telemedicine initiatives such as Ask a Doctor have opened new avenues for rural healthcare. Concepts like e-Pharmacy, e-Hospital, e-Diagnostics, e-Insurance and e-Referrals, have given a big boost to the health sector. Health care professionals (HCPs) and health workers can now stay abreast of industry developments with e-CME and tele-education. Programs like Mother and Child Tracking System (MCTS) and eMamta have shown how big a role technology can play to address the issue of IMR and MMR. Electronic medical record (EMRs) in place will improve the efficiency and delivery of healthcare services in the country.
