The National Health Authority (NHA) has announced fund allocation to States and Union Territories (UTs) for the implementation of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) based on their performance in recording data in the Health Facility Registry (HFR) and Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR).

 

This performance-based fund allocation shall help in the structured implementation of the ABDM at State/UT level with verified entries strengthening the key national registries being built under the scheme. 

 

As per the earlier guidelines issued by NHA, Rs 500 crore had been demarcated for setting up of ABDM offices at State/ UT level over five years (FY 2021-22 to FY 2025-26). 20 per cent of these funds, i.e., Rs 100 crore were earmarked as incentive-based funds. Taking this thought further, NHA decided to extend the current fund allocation based on the performance of respective states and UTs in terms of the number of entities (healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses etc. and health facilities like hospitals, clinics, health and wellness centres, diagnostic labs, pharmacies etc.) that the respective States/ UTs register and verify within a stipulated period. 

 

The population of the Health Facility Registry (HFR) and Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR) is crucial to achieving the intended objective of ABDM. The introduction of performance-based funding to States & UTs is an initiative in this direction.
