“Digital innovation is changing healthcare as patients seek on-demand healthcare and improved quality of care. From improved discovery and appointments, reduction in waiting time and doorstep pharma delivery to teleconsultation, tele-radiology etc., the collaboration and utilisation of data with AI is leading to better planning, timely interventions and implementation in healthcare delivery,” Dr Alexander Kuruvilla, Chief Healthcare Strategy Officer, Practo.

“From reading COVID reports to checking test reports online, in one way or another, we all have already experienced digital healthcare and its impact. But the challenges are to maintain the reports under a longitudinal health record, and to have a standardised report format that is easily readable by both the doctors and the machine. And with ABDM we are solving these.”

“Additionally, while we know that ABDM will enable doctors to provide better care with more access to history and patient information, there’s more. Like in the West, the government in India to promote the use of this platform, is now providing opportunities for doctors to earn incentives for adopting ABDM. For instance, whether its a hospital with over 10 beds or a lab, doctors can earn about Rs 20 per health record shared.In other words if there’s a lab that’s doing about 1000 health records per month, they can earn an additional amount of up to Rs 10,000 in incentives,” Kiran Anandampillai, Advisor Technology, NHA.

How private digital healthcare companies like Practo are helping drive this transformation?

“Going forward within Practo Ray, doctors will be able to enable UHI independently without any Prime subscription . No matter which platform the patients are using, be it Practo app, or Arogya Setu app or Paytm app, doctors can will have the same experience from the provider side to provide care, in both online and offline appointment booking,” Abhinav Lal, Co-founder, Practo.
