As is inevitable in times of adversity, the Covid-19 pandemic has inspired promising innovations, particularly in digital healthcare models. Surveys conducted by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) across doctors and patients highlight that 85% of the clinicians used digital platforms for patient interactions during the lockdown. 60% patients across metro and tier 1 cities reported they would continue using digital platforms for primary care in the post COVID world due to the fundamental benefits of shorter waiting time and easy access to qualified doctors.
Now at the cusp of the Digital 3.0 era, the Open Digital Ecosystems represent a fundamental change in the way the government can leverage technology for public care delivery and enable private sector innovation. From the telemedicine guidelines being announced in March 2020 to the launch of national digital health ID in August 2020, we have just started to see the digital era in healthcare take shape.
India has already demonstrated its commitment to leverage digital health as a health system strengthening intervention, as outlined in the National Digital Health Blueprint based on which, the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) is currently being piloted by the National health authority.  With a whopping INR 1,600 crore allocation, it entails creation of a shared public digital infrastructure that can be leveraged by both public and private players to deploy new solutions that enhance the end-user experience. Many reports have estimated that over the next decade, NDHM can potentially unlock an incremental value of INR 1.5 lakh crore for the healthcare industry.
