Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Monday stressed on the use of technology to remove any scope of fraud in the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY).
“There should be no space for fraud in the AB-PMJAY which aims for healthcare of the poorest from the society,” Mandaviya said. He was speaking on the closing day of the two-day Arogya Manthan 2022, celebrating completion of four years of AB-PMJAY, and one year of Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission (ABDHM) here.
“We need to use all available technology tools to remove even the smallest scope for any fraud,” he said. Veena George, Minister of Health, Kerala and Dr V K Paul, Member (Health), NITI Aayog were also present.
Speaking on the occasion after awarding the top performing states, districts, integrators and health facilities, Mandaviya said the two days’ brainstorming session would contribute to giving additional boost for rethinking and improving PM-JAY and ABDM. “Even a small suggestion has the power for bringing big change,” he stated. Mandaviya urged states who are still to cover eligible beneficiaries, to accelerate their efforts to provide Ayushman Bharat cards to all. He also encouraged stakeholders to bring innovative solutions for integrating technology in digital health.
