These microsites are designed to act as clusters for small and medium-scale healthcare facilities, such as clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, labs, pharmacies, and others, which are ABDM-enabled and provide digital health services to patients

The National Health Authority (NHA) has launched "100 Microsites Project" under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). These microsites will function as clusters for small and medium-scale healthcare facilities, including clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, labs, and pharmacies, offering digital health services to patients. 

The primary aim of these microsites is to establish small ecosystems in specific geographic areas with complete ABDM adoption, ensuring that the entire patient journey is digitised. The project will be implemented across various states and union territories, with State Mission Directors of Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission taking the lead, while the National Health Authority will provide financial resources and overall guidance. 

To achieve the project's objectives, healthcare facilities and professionals, especially from the private sector, will be registered in ABDM modules like the healthcare professionals registry (HPR) and health facility registry (HFR). ABDM-enabled applications will be installed within these microsites, ensuring seamless integration and functionality. Patients visiting these centres will also become part of ABDM, with their health records linked to their ABHA. 

'œWe aim to establish 100 such microsites across the country where focused efforts would be made to bring as many small-medium scale healthcare entities under the ABDM fold. This will not only increase adoption among private sector providers but will also help ABDM to expand its footprints among the private healthcare providers across the country as well," said S. Gopalakrishnan, CEO of NHA. 

Through targeted adoption efforts, the project intends to raise awareness among small and medium-scale healthcare providers about ABDM's benefits, encouraging them to register on ABDM's core registries, utilise ABDM-certified digital solutions, and ultimately link digital health records. These efforts are expected to activate the ecosystem for widespread ABDM adoption in the country, making digital healthcare more accessible to all. 

ABDM, or Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, is an initiative launched by the National Health Authority in India. It aims to promote digital health adoption and accessibility by establishing microsites serving as clusters for ABDM-enabled healthcare facilities, facilitating digital health services, and linking patient health records for better healthcare management.
