Challenges for adoption of smart healthcare strategies: An Indian perspective
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractSmart healthcare management strategies have shown great promise in delivering the best quality healthcare to all and is the best possible solution to address the challenges in meeting the goal of quality healthcare to all. The Indian Government has set out ambitiously in this regard through the Ayushman Bharath Digital Mission (ABDM) which “aims to develop the backbone necessary to support the integrated digital health infrastructure of the country”. As this flagship project is rolled out, it is important to understand the various challenges to the successful uptake of this mission. The objective of this review is to systematically examine published literature to identify and compile a list of such challenges. The knowledge of such challenges is critical to make the ABDM successful. EBSCOHost, PubMed, Scopus, Science Direct and Open Access databases were systematically searched for full text, peer reviewed, English articles that have listed such challenges in the adoption of smart healthcare. In addition to these searches, the ABDM portal and the document store have also been used for analyses since the scope for this review is India. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines were used to select eligible articles. After the full screening,12 articles that met the criteria were analysed and used to identify 11 key challenges for adopting smart healthcare management strategies. Identified challenges will enable Indian health sector policy makers and healthcare leaders to understand and accurately evaluate potential solutions of adopting ABDM strategies. It is important to emphasise that the success of ABDM is dependent on its adoption by public and private sector entities and by individuals and decision makers. It is concluded that future research is needed in identifying key smart healthcare management strategies and key drivers for adopting smart healthcare management strategies.
