After that, in 5 years, optical fiber has reached 1.5 lakh panchayats. Village participation in digital India has also become essential. With this in mind, we planned to reach out to every panchayat.

We have decided to deliver optical fiber to more than 6 lakh villages. Millions of kilometers of optical fiber will be laid. In a thousand days, the work of optical fiber will be completed in more than 6 lakh villages of the country....

Whenever you go to the doctors or hospital, you will not have to take the report of the prescription and examination related to the previous treatment. Treatment can be done anywhere in the country. All you have to do is tell your unique ID to the doctor and he will be able to sit and watch all the medical records from anywhere. With this, you will get rid of the hassle of saving all the papers of doctors and medical tests.

5) How long will you get the benefit of this scheme?

In the initial phase of the scheme, Health ID, Personal Health Records, Digi Doctor and Health Facility Registry will be available. Telemedicine and e-pharmacy facilities will be added later.

People may have to wait for some time to get the benefit of this scheme. Actually, the government has sought suggestions from people for its name, logo and tagline. These suggestions were to be given by 6 August. 2604 people have given suggestions in it. Its winner will be given a reward of 25 thousand rupees.


Personal Health Record: By treating any disease, the concerned doctor will be able to know your health history on the app related to it. This will make it easier to treat him further. If any medicine can harm you, then this health history will be known only.
Digi Doctor: Through this facility, private or government doctors from across the country will be able to get themselves registered.
Telemedicine: With this help, you will be able to get online treatment from any doctor registered on this platform.
E-Pharmacy: Through this, you will be able to order medicines online from the card.
Fees: Have to deposit money, rush to get a slip in the hospital, you will get rid of these problems. All this will be possible with a digital card.


This health ID will have many characteristics. This health card will have complete health record of a person's life. When was he suffering from which disease, when was he treated. What medicines did the doctor prescribe, which tests were done and what were their results. Therefore, the next time the patient goes to a doctor or hospital, he will not have to take all his reports, doctor's slips, it will be enough to take only this health card. The doctor will be able to see the entire health history of the patient only with the unique number of the health card. Every time a person goes to the doctor, and whoever takes the medicine or gets treatment, the information will be recorded in the health card.


This health card will be created on the lines of Aadhaar card. However, this will not be mandatory and beneficiaries will be able to opt out of the scheme at any time. Full measures will be taken to protect people's personal information. The scope of National Digital Health Mission will be gradually expanded so that not only clinics and hospitals but also medical stores and medical insurance companies can also connect to servers through this scheme. People's privacy will be highly valued. A doctor or hospital will be allowed to use a person's records only if he or she gives permission for the same.
