EMR Standards

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, has recently constituted an Expert Committee for setting the Indian Standards for Electronic Medical Records.
The First Meeting was held in New Delhi on September 30, 2010.
Following some introductory discussions, three sub-committees have been formed for: (i) Standards (ii) Data Connectivity and (iii) Data Ownership. The respective sub-committee members are interacting among themselves during the intervening periods too.
The second meeting will be presided over by the Secretary of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.
Hopefully by the end of its tenure there would be set guidelines for practicing e-health in India.


  1. A policy / guideline on e-health will be helpful, and positively will de-clog a lot of administration processes in hospitals and other healthcare delivery centres
