The Genesis

The Digital Bharat Collaborative recognises the challenges faced by the government in adopting technology in its systems and processes. The focus on data capture alone, lack of integration with existing systems, and absence of a long-term digital vision and in-system capacity for execution are some of the core challenges. The initiative seeks to address these issues through a robust system integration approach and a collaborative model that encourages sustained collaboration.


The Digital Bharat Collaborative uses a digital transformation approach that provides a continuum of care through two pillars – field deployment and integrated solutions. 
The field deployment empowers frontline workers, leverages telemedicine services, and utilises mobile medical units (MMU). The integrated solution strengthens facilities, enables IoT implementation, integrates technology, and enables governance. 
The approach aims to create a single port of call for healthcare services, provide a continuum of care, offer clinical excellence, and enable data-driven decisions.

The Journey
so far

Tribal Health Collaborative has already made considerable headway in its approach to improve tribal health

  • Digital Bharat Collaborative has launched the AMRIT (Accessible Medical Records via Integrated Technologies) health technology platform, integrating health solutions in Bihar as a pilot project to become NDHM (National Digital Health Mission) compliant.
  • Bahmni Hospital Management system has been deployed to digitize patient health records, and AMRIT Facility Application has been deployed in 6 health and wellness centers. A centralized data warehouse has been built at the Command and Control Centre to enable real-time data-backed decisions.

The SAKHI application has digitally enabled ASHA workers in Bihar to provide virtual field support to over 10,000 families and 535 expectant mothers. Health helpline and eSanjeevani have been integrated with AMRIT for seamless telemedicine applications, and mobile medical units have made over 4 million visits and generated 3 lakh referrals.
