Microsites project

  • Recently, the National Health Authority (NHA) announced 100 Microsites projects for accelerated adoption of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) across the country.

About Microsites project:

  • These are defined geographical regions where focused outreach efforts would be made to onboard small and medium-scale private healthcare providers.

Types of facilities to be covered under a Microsite:

  • Private facilities such as standalone clinics, polyclinics, nursing homes, small hospitals (preferably <10 beds), labs, pharmacies, and any other healthcare facilities wherein health records are generated.
  • Health Facilities and Health Professionals from all the systems of medicine.
  • Categories of a Microsite: Any State/UT can choose to implement any of the following categories of Microsites as per the regional priorities.
  • Category A Microsite: A microsite which consists of at least 1000 facilities, inclusive of all types of health facilities, as mentioned above
  • Category B Microsite: A microsite that consists of at least 500 facilities but less than 1000 facilities, inclusive of all types of health facilities, as mentioned above.


  • These Microsites would be majorly implemented by State Mission Directors of ABDM, while the financial resources and overall guidance would be provided by NHA.
  • An interfacing agency under this program will have an on-ground team to reach out to the healthcare providers in the area.
  • This team will spread awareness about the benefits of ABDM. It will help the service providers to join the core registries under ABDM, besides promoting the use of ABDM to enable digital solutions for regular clinical documentation.
  • Patients will be able to link the health records generated at these facilities with their Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHAs). They will be able to view and share these records using any ABDM-enabled Personal Health Record (PHR) application on their phones.
