Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission will bring 'revolutionary changes,' says PM Narendra Modi, top points

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission via video conferencing on Monday, saying it will bring "revolutionary changes in the country's healthcare facilities''. The launching of the event began at 11 am followed by Prime Minister Modi’s address on the occasion. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya was also present on the occasion.

"Today begins a Mission that has the power to bring a revolutionary change in India's health facilities. 3 years ago, on Pt Deendayal Upadhyaya's birth anniversary, Ayushman Bharat Yojana was implemented. I am happy that Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission is being started nationwide from today," the PM said.

 

 

"Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission will play a big role in eliminating problems in medical treatment of poor and middle class. Via technology, work done by Ayushman Bharat to connect patients with hospitals across the nation is being further expanded and given strong technology platform,'' the PM added.

"With the free vaccine movement, India has administered about 90 crore vaccine doses, therefore creating a record. Certification has also been issued for the same. CoWin has to be credited as well for this achievement," PM Modi said at the launch of Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission.

He also expressed his "gratitude to all doctors, nurses, medical staff of the nation. Be it vaccination or treatment of COVID patients, their efforts gave a huge relief to the nation & helped it in the fight against Corona.''

Outlining the government's Jan Dhan account scheme, the BHIM digital payment interface, the PM said, "From 'Rashan to Prashasan', UPI is reaching the common man...With 118 crore mobile subscribers, about 80 crore internet users and about 43 crore 'Jan Dhan' bank accounts, nowhere in the world would you be seeing such a huge digital infrastructure."

“On 15th August 2020, PM had announced the mission (Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission) from the ramparts of the Red Fort. I am happy that he is launching it today. I believe that this will bring a revolutionary change in the health sector,” Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said ahead of the launch.
