National Health Mission launches project ‘Niramay’ in Assam
Recently the National Health Mission, Assam in collaboration with Piramal Health and Cisco launched the project “NIRAMAY” to demonstrate the integration of digital health technology to strengthen public health care delivery in the state.
The NHM initiative aims to develop the digital backbone of the health system in India, including a training program for pilots to launch the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission in line with the national guidelines envisaged in the state.
The ‘Niramay’ project is based on Piramal Health’s indigenous health technology platform ‘Amrit’. “AMRUT” integrates itself with the national digital health ecosystem, and empowers the beneficiaries as well as healthcare providers.
