The Integrated Health Management System 2.0 will offer a suite of online health services aimed at enhancing patient experience and improving healthcare outcomes.


Rajasthan is all set to revolutionize its medical delivery system by transitioning to a fully online health management system, announced a senior official on Wednesday.

The initiative, dubbed as "Integrated Health Management System 2.0," aims to bolster health services across the state, signaling a crucial step towards accessible healthcare for all residents.

Addressing the initiative, additional chief secretary of the Medical and Health Department, Shubhra Singh, described it as an ambitious and visionary project designed to provide easy access to health services for the common people.

Singh emphasized the transformative potential of the Integrated Health Management System 2.0 in bringing positive revolutionary changes to the state's medical landscape.

State-of-the-Art Health Management System

Singh highlighted that the new system will be state-of-the-art, leveraging technology to streamline healthcare delivery and overcome existing challenges faced by medical facilities.

The project aims to benefit the general public, healthcare professionals, and administration alike, promising to enhance efficiency and effectiveness across the board.

Shubhra Singh reviewed the development of the project in a high-level meeting on Wednesday in Jaipur. She further underscored the importance of expeditious completion of the project.

She urged concerned departments and agencies to collaborate closely, emphasizing the need for full coordination to ensure seamless implementation. Singh announced that the project's progress will be reviewed weekly to monitor its timely execution.

Comprehensive Health Services Online

The Integrated Health Management System 2.0 will offer a suite of online health services aimed at enhancing patient experience and improving healthcare outcomes.

Among the key features mentioned in the official statement are electronic health records, DIGI health locker, tele ICU, and geo-tagging based hospital facilities.

Additionally, the system will facilitate freedom from queues for patients, a unified digital survey, and a single window system for health-related licenses and NOCs.

With the majority of health services transitioning online, patients are poised to benefit from easier access to treatment. The move towards digital healthcare promises to streamline processes, reduce waiting times, and improve overall patient satisfaction.

Digital Health Initiatives in Rajasthan

Rajasthan has been taking steps in leveraging digital technologies to enhance healthcare delivery, improve maternal and child health outcomes, and build a robust digital health ecosystem in the state.

The state is planning to completely digitize its RCH services, including tracking of pregnant women and newborn children.

The state signed an MoU with Jhpiego, a global health organization, to implement this project, which will enable real-time monitoring of RCH services.

As part of the RCH digitization, auxiliary nurse midwives (ANMs) in select districts will be provided digital devices to directly register health reports in the PCTS through their mobile phones.

Similarly, the state adopted CHIP as a digital health platform that provides offline-ready mobile applications for key health workers including ASHAs and ANMs to monitor community needs and healthcare performance in real-time.

According to reports, about 70,000 ASHAs are using CHIP to track 40 million beneficiaries.

Moreover, the Transform Health India Rajasthan Coalition is working towards drafting and improving digital health legislation in the state, with the goal of tabling a draft in the state assembly by 2028.
