âThis new version of the AB-PMJAY mobile app has unique features. It is designed in a more practical way. The old version of the PMJAY mobile app was very basic and only focused on beneficiaries. The new PMJAY app will bring together all stakeholders under one roof to obtain real-time data from beneficiaries, hospitals, medical packages, doctors, relevant people from the insurance company, the National Health Agency and the ‘National Health Agency,’ said the official who developed the new version of PMJAY.
“The app will also have an ambulance that will automatically connect the patient to it. In addition, patients can upload their medical records through a special function of the cam scanner. All beneficiary data is kept under high security,” said one said the manager.
âWe provide 100% mobile governance and take a step forward from e-governance. We want everything available on the AB-PMJAY ecosystem to now be covered on the new version of the AB-PMJAY mobile app and should be used by users. friendly, âsaid the director general of the National Health Authority, Dr Indu Bhushan.
The previous version of the AB-PMJAY app had around 2.5 lakes of active users, while the total download was 3.5 lakes in the past year.
AB-PMJAY is a centrally sponsored program with a central sector component under the Ayushman Bharat mission anchored in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW). It brings together two major health initiatives, namely the health and well-being centers and the national health protection regime.
The program will cover more than 10 million poor and vulnerable families (approximately 50 million beneficiaries) providing coverage of up to 5 lakh rupees per family per year for secondary and tertiary hospitalizations.
Recently, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said September 23 would be celebrated as Ayushman Bharat Diwas. The fortnight from September 15 to 30 will be marked as “Ayushman Bharat Pakhwara” where several activities will be carried out in the United States to raise awareness around the program and celebrate this gift of health to the nation.
In the past year, Ayushman Bharat has relieved 45 lakhs of patients who have been admitted to hospitals for medical services, 10 crores of electronic cards have been issued and more than 18,000 hospitals have been established across the country.
