A scheme to set up an integrated health information platform (IHIP) to create the Electronic Health Records (EHRs) of citizens and to be made available nationwide online for medical history, with the help of health information exchange(s), has been approved and is being implemented. MoHFW has notified EHR Standards Version 2016 for India in December 2016 (whilst the earlier version of EHR Standards was notified in September 2013) with the intent to bring standardization and homogeneity, inter-operability in capture, storage, transmission, use etc. of healthcare information across various health IT systems.

States/UTs have been advised and are already working on computerization and implementation of hospital information system (for creation of electronic records) in their hospitals/health facility with support under the National Health Mission.
