New EHR Guidelines notified

The Ministry of Health and Family Affairs had released a comprehensive version of technical standards for Electronic Health Records first in 2013. Subsequently in March 2016 a revised version had been released for public comments.

Now a final version has been notified on December 2016, a copy of which is available here.

It needs to be adopted in IT systems by health care institutions/providers across the country.

When the Health Data Privacy and Security Act which is under drafting is enacted, these standards will acquire legal mandate. However, in view of the enormous work required in implementing these standards, it is preferable for all IT companies to start adopting a transformation plan to adopt these standards.
