We should note that Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has spoken out about the human resource constraints found in the health sector.
There is only one doctor for every 1,500 people in India, instead of one doctor for every 1,000 people. Where there should be one nurse for every 300 people, there is only one nurse for every 670 people. With fewer doctors and nurses in rural areas, there is a need for people to turn to cities for medical care.
It is questionable whether the move to digital technological change without stabilizing the medical framework would be fruitful.
There is a possibility of misuse of the information stored in the Digital Health Identity Card as there is a lack of privacy laws in India and the lack of awareness among the public to protect their data. There is also the possibility of insurance companies exploiting patients by finding ways to steal data and setting fees based on it.
The scope of this plan, which has been brought in without improving the health infrastructure and enforcing the strict concealment law, is excellent. At the same time, it was full of practical problems.
