The National Health Authority (NHA) has rolled out the module for nurses on Health Professional Registry under Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). Nurses providing health services across modern and traditional systems of medicine can also enroll on Healthcare Professional Registry. Applications for enrolment in the registry will be verified by the concerned councils.
Going forward, NHA plans to enroll more categories of health professionals like para-medicals, grass-root level community health workers (ASHAs), medical support staff, allied healthcare professionals etc. in the registry.
Health Professional Registry (HPR) is a comprehensive repository of all healthcare professionals involved in the delivery of healthcare services across both modern and traditional systems of medicine. HPR is a core building block of the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). Through HPR, healthcare professionals can onboard onto India’s digital health ecosystem and connect patients to healthcare providers or vice versa with last-mile coverage. Benefits of HPR include a unique and trustable identity, online presence and discoverability along with telemedicine and unified digital services.
