Digital Health Summit 2023

Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, Hon’ble Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare stated, “Through a common digital framework, India aims to create and curate Digital Public Goods, enhance access to these tools by nations throughout the world, and promote standards for interoperability, data privacy, and data security”  in the presence of Dr. Pramod Sawant, Chief Minister of Goa, at the Digital Health Summit 2023.

The event’s topic, “Building One Health Together – Improving Health Equity,” aimed to bring together policymakers, business executives, and international healthcare professionals and thought leaders to discuss the major problems facing the digital health industry.

Speaking at the event, Dr. Pawar thanked the attendees and noted that the event is in line with the goals of the One Earth, One Family, One Future initiative of the G20 Health Working Group for India, which focuses on digital health innovations and solutions to support universal health coverage. She emphasised the significance of digital health breakthroughs by pointing out how they are fueling technologies like 3D printing, point-of-care diagnostics, robots, bioinformatics, and genomics that are revolutionising the field of exponential medicine and acting as both an enabler and an equaliser. She stressed that the goal must continue to be “citizen-centric” digital health systems with fair access to high-quality treatments in addition to adoption.

Speaking about various government of India initiatives like the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), the e-Sanjeevani Teleconsultation service, the Ayushman Bharat-Prandhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY), and CoWIN and their role in strengthening the development of a digital health ecosystem in the nation, Dr. Pawar said that these initiatives would help us in achieving the goal of improving health service accessibility and equity throughout the nation.

Dr. Pawar emphasised that it is past due for the delivery of healthcare services to the general public to be reorganised to make advantage of modern technology. According to her, “Emerging technologies like AI, the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, 3-D printing in medical device manufacturing, etc. can help create a more holistic health ecosystem that improves health outcomes.”
