The NABH Digital Health Standards, launched in 2023, are pioneering in India, specifically designed to assess hospitals based on their digital maturity and integration of advanced technologies in healthcare. These standards aim to enhance clinical care quality, patient safety, and overall operational efficiency by encouraging the adoption of digital health processes.

Digital health innovations such as telemedicine, electronic health records (EHRs), mobile health applications, wearable technology, and artificial intelligence are critical components in transforming healthcare delivery.
