In order to accredit and rate HMIS (Health Management Information System) and LMIS (Laboratory Information Management System) solutions that have been integrated with the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, the National Health Authority (NHA) has onboarded the Quality Council of India (QCI) for six months. The National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH), a constituent board of QCI, is in charge of national accreditation in the medical field, according to the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
- In order to provide prospective buyers with reliable information, NABH will take on the task of accrediting and grading the ABDM compliant solutions on a variety of factors, such as ease of use, user interface, price, number of modules/features, and value for money/price.
- The recognised health tech solutions will assist healthcare businesses in managing their patient journeys and business more systematically in accordance with ABDM standards, according to Adil Zainulbhai, Chairman, QCI.
- The Ministry states that the accreditation process would be carried out in stages. Phase I will concentrate on evaluating and accrediting HMIS solutions that have successfully integrated with ABDM.
- In order to build an accreditation standard for digital health solutions across several product categories (such as HMIS, LMIS, Health Locker, etc.) that have successfully completed their ABDM integration, NABH, QCI will onboard professionals in the field of digital health as part of this endeavour.
- NHA is responsible for providing the testing environment for the review parameters.
