ABDM is the initiative started by the Central government which aims to digitalise health records across the country and includes QR code-based patient registration, Health Management Information System (HMIS). 

HMIS is a software to manage data in any hospital including many digital services like patient registration, patient Que management, lab information system, doctors desk, OP billing etc. 

“With the help of Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) card, patients can access their medical records anywhere, anytime without losing them all over India. This would enhance accessibility to their health records on the palm of their hands," said Mandaviya and congratulated the first- year students.

“AIIMS is a prestigious institute. Its reputation is such that, people think that if there is no treatment available at AIIMS, then there is no treatment available elsewhere in the whole country."

Mandaviya reviewed with progress report of AIIMS Bibinagar and visited the project site of construction to inspect the work under progress.

Under Swacch Bharath Abhiyaan, herbal plantation drive was taken up at the institute where 101 herbal plants were planted by the newly joined 1st year MBBS students of AIIMS Bibinagar.
