- Patients’ privacy will not be compromised. Health records will be 5.accessible to physicians and health insurers with the consent of the patient.
- Data will be available to research institutes, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical companies.

- District hospitals and doctors will be monitored through analytics.
What are the Challenges for this mission?
a) These data will go to private companies, which can be difficult for the National Health Information System to handle.
b) Integrating such decentralized or global private technology products with a national health information system is a challenge.
c) People spend more than two-thirds of their money on health. Therefore, state governments and private hospitals need to be brought together.
D) Voluntary awareness has to be brought among the citizens for registration.
E) Despite this, the shortage of hospitals, doctors, and nurses cannot be met through digitization. For this, the government should plan to increase the expenditure on medicine in the GDP by 1%. Only then can the gap between real and digital be filled.
