Introduction










         The emphasis of the National Health Mission is on establishing a
         fully functional, community owned, decentralized health delivery
         system. The main programmatic components of NHM include

         Health      System       Strengthening,          Reproductive         –    Maternal       -
         Neonatal       -   Child     &     Adolescent        Health      (RMNCH+A),           and
         Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases. The NHM
         envisages        achievement          of   universal       access       to    equitable,
         affordable & quality health care services that are accountable
         and responsive to people’s needs.


         A large number of health programs are operational under the
         Mission and along with them a pool of IT applications are
         functional      under      the     digital     health     ecosystem.         These       IT
         applications have been designed and rolled-out at different

         times using different technologies. However, it was felt that the
         techno-functional details of such applications are not readily
         available in a single document or place.


         This e-booklet is an effort to consolidate and present an
         ecosystem of various IT initiatives under the ambit of NHM. The
         e-Booklet is expected to be a useful repository consisting of key
         information of ICT interventions and act as a ready reference
         compendium for all the stakeholders.
