Read more about PwC’s pioneering role of developing India's very first Digital Health Standards with National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH).
Together, we forge a healthy future.
Until recently, India has lacked standardised digital health standards for hospitals. Although there is a strong push for digital adoption across healthcare facilities in India, there are no standards to evaluate and certify their digital maturity. The existing healthcare facilities have a low understanding of digital tools to be adopted. Inconsistencies in data management, security and interoperability were rampant. The absence of a unified framework hindered the growth of the healthcare sector. The client aimed to develop and roll out a digital health accreditation programme to drive digital adoption in healthcare facilities in India.
PwC took on the integral role of developing India’s very first Digital Health Standards in collaboration with NABH. A dedicated team of specialists from various domains conducted extensive research on global best practices and local healthcare requirements. Rigorous consultations, webinars and workshops with hospitals and stakeholders were held to ensure practicality and relevance.
We introduced and established the foundation for standardised digital health record practices that:
enhanced data security and patient privacy, in line with global standards
fostered interoperability, allowing seamless data sharing among healthcare providers
bolstered hospital management efficiency, ultimately improving patient care quality.
This innovative initiative has supported growth and innovation in India’s healthcare sector.
