PTI
The National Digital Health Mission (NDHM), unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday in his Independence Day address has been rolled out on a pilot mode in six Union territories. Under NDHM every Indian will get a health ID that will ease access to medical services in the country.

The National Health Authority (NHA), which is also the apex agency responsible for the implementation of Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana has been given the mandate by the government to design, build, roll-out and implement the NDHM in the country.

The six Union Territories where the mission has been rolled out through a pilot launch are Chandigarh, Ladakh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu, Puducherry, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep.

NDHM aims to liberate citizens from the challenges of finding the right doctors, seeking appointment with them, payment of consultation fee, making several rounds of hospitals for preion sheets. It will also empower all citizens with the correct information and sources enabling them to take an informed decision to avail the best possible healthcare.

The mission will be implemented in all parts of the country after studying the initial results of the pilot launch.
