The National Health Authority has released the draft Health Data Management Policy of the National Digital Health Mission and invited public comments by September 3, 2020. This draft policy can be found on the official website of NDHM (https://ndhm.gov.in/stakeholder_consultations/ndhm_policies). The draft Health Data Management Policy proposes various measures to protect privacy of personal data as India proceeds to digitise its healthcare system and is expected to be finalised after receiving public feedback.
The National Health Authority functions under the Union Ministry for Health and Family Welfare and that is the implementing authority of India’s flagship public health insurance scheme, Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna. PM Narendra Modi had announced the launch of the National Digital Health Mission during his Independence Day address. All Indians are to be provided with a unique health ID as part of the National Digital Health Mission.
