Statista Dossier about digital health in India

Despite having made significant strides in improving various health indicators in the past years, such as decreased infant mortality rates and under-5 mortality rates, the public health system in India is in dire need of fortification. The need for improved access, affordability and quality healthcare for all citizens by 2030 is part of the sustainable developmental goal 3 for all United Nations member states that India is part of. To meet this target, the government of India launched the National digital health mission (NDHM) in August 2020 to create a robust public digital infrastructure that can be leveraged by all key stakeholders within the healthcare ecosystem. The Ayushman Bharat scheme is a recent government digital initiative that incorporates elements of an open digital ecosystem to bring affordable healthcare to the financially less privileged sections of society. This dossier features the current health scenario in India relative to estimated health budgets vis-à-vis investments in digital health settings. It also highlights details about the catalysts that kick started the digital movement – COVID-19 pandemic and reliable data access. Additionally, it underscores details on the responses of key players within the health ecosystem that moved toward digital transformation - health insurances, hospitals and pharmacies to name a few. The last two chapters focus on the emerging technologies and the future of digital health in India.
