i-medicus Accelerating India’s Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM)

India’s healthcare ecosystem is undergoing a digital transformation journey. The  Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), launched in 2018, aims to make healthcare services more accessible and affordable for India’s 1 Billion+ people. 

i-medicus is committed to accelerating the ABDM. As a pioneering online telehealth services provider

i-medicus integrates seamlessly with ABDM functionalities, redefining how healthcare is accessed and delivered across the nation.

Understanding ABDM

ABDM is a one-of-a-kind nationwide digital healthcare initiative. Its key components are:

  • Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) numbers: Personal 12-digit health IDs for lifelong health records.
  • Health Records Platform: A central place securely storing and managing electronic medical records.
  • Interoperable Standards: Rules ensuring different healthcare systems can talk to each other seamlessly.
  • Apps and Services: A platform supporting digital healthcare services, like appointments and consultations.

The ABDM goal is to make healthcare work better for everyone, making it easier to get and more focused on patients.

What makes i-medicus ABDM-Ready?

At the core of i-medicus’s mission is a commitment to leveraging ABDM for the benefit of patients and healthcare providers alike. Let’s delve into how i-medicus aligns with ABDM:

How i-medicus Ensures Data Privacy and Security

When it comes to digital healthcare access in India or anywhere else, data privacy and security are non-negotiable. i-medicus takes these concerns seriously, aligning with the core principles of ABDM to ensure patient information remains confidential, secure, and accessible only to authorized entities.

Security by Design:

i-medicus telemedicine for providers integrates ABDM’s “Security by Design” philosophy at its core. The platform is HIPAA-compliant and uses strong access controls. It keeps a record of everything it does, stopping anyone from getting in without permission.

Patient – Centredness:

Empowering patients is central to i-medicus. In alignment with ABDM, individuals retain complete control over their health data. Through sophisticated consent management mechanisms embedded in the system, patients decide what information to share, with whom, and for what purposes.

Data Minimization:

ABDM’s emphasis on data minimization echoes i-medicus’s practices. The platform collects only the essential data required for effective healthcare delivery. This dual focus not only reduces the risk of data breaches but also lightens the burden on providers and patients in managing extensive medical records.

Compliance with Regulations:

Adherence to stringent data privacy regulations is a cornerstone of i-medicus’s commitment. In tandem with ABDM, i-medicus complies with the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill and other relevant laws. This ensures legal safeguards for patient data and establishes mechanisms for redressal in case of privacy violations.

How i-medicus meets Interoperability Standards in ABDM?

i-medicus easily fits into the ABDM plan by using widely accepted standards called FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources). This helps i-medicus share health information securely and easily with other ABDM-friendly healthcare systems.

Federated Architecture:

ABDM’s federated model finds resonance in i-medicus’s architecture. Patient information stays safe by keeping it close to where it comes from, usually with healthcare providers. This way of storing data not only gives more control but also lowers the chances of big problems if there’s a breach.

Interoperability Framework:

i-medicus follows the rules set by the National Health Authority (NHA) for how different systems can work together. These rules make sure that sharing information is easy and follows a clear plan. It helps everyone in the ABDM group communicate better and use the same standards for sharing data.

Continuous Improvement:

Recognizing the evolving nature of healthcare technologies, i-medicus ensures that interoperability standards are continuously updated. This commitment to constant improvement guarantees that the ABDM framework remains adaptable and future-proof.

In essence, i-medicus isn’t merely a participant in ABDM; it’s a guardian of data privacy, ensuring that every interaction within its platform adheres to the highest standards of security and patient-centricity.
