Under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), NHA invites contributors to participate in the open development of digital health protocols
National Health Authority (NHA) has announced the launch of the Unified Health Interface (UHI) under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). UHI is an open network designed to enable interoperable digital health service delivery.
UHI will be powered by protocols built by an open community of developers and deployed on a gateway built by NHA. Further, adoption of Decentralised Health Protocol (DHP) as core protocols of UHI was announced and developers were invited to join DHP and contribute to UHI. Meanwhile, NHA’s internal team has also been working on the same.
A version of the open protocols is available on Github platform and may be used to build health service applications. Any technology provider currently developing digital health solutions for hospitals, doctors, labs or consumers can create innovative new solutions using DHP and become a part of UHI Network.
NHA reiterates the invitation extended earlier and invites all, especially those working in the digital health space, to join the DHP open community hosted on the GitHub platform to further refine existing protocols and build new protocols for use cases currently not a part of DHP. The DHP community is open for all and is an opportunity to enrich and contribute to the further development of the open protocols that will power the digital health revolution in India.
