Bahmni as Health Information Provider [HIP] for NDHM Compatibility

Bahmni will function as Health Information Provider (HIP) integrated with India's Federated Health Record system, where users can have access to a longitudinal view of their health data across all providers. Personal Health Record [PHR] architecture also allows for safe and secure exchange of consented health information.

Tele-consulting using Bahmni as EMR 

Patients’ ability to consult (COVID or otherwise) is hampered because of physical distancing / restricted people movement. In many cases, healthcare service provisioning during pandemic situations can be achieved through alternative channels like Tele-consulting, which we think will ensure continuity of care, and make healthcare accessible. We want to ensure that for legitimate scenarios,  healthcare services are no longer a function of distance. See discussion here.
