National Digital Health Mission launched todayToday our Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the National Digital Health Mission from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the occasion of India's 74th Independence Day. As per this mission, every Indian will be given Unique digital identity. The health history of each identity will be stored digitally. When a patient goes to a hospital his entire health history can be viewed by the doctor on this site.
This mission will be useful to cut a lot of paperwork which a patient has to take care of before visiting a new hospital. The government officials said that the safeguard mechanisms would be built to take care of the privacy issues of the patients.
