On September 14th, I had the opportunity to attend the OASIS (Open-Source Alliance for Social Innovation & Sustainability) Summit, thanks to the generous sponsorship from the Zerodha team.
One of the purposes of the visit was to look for Open-source software that can be used to build an affordable HMIS and other software-based solutions for small Healthcare providers.
I documented my experience in this essay: https://www.sumanjha.com/post/the-netflix-moment-of-healthcare-in-india (Also, I got the opportunity to meet Nithin - I shook hands with Nithin two times even though I was instructed to keep it formal - and Kailash <3). Anyway, I will write a long essay on this in the future…
It took us 3 nights to deploy HMIS in the Sandbox. However, before it is released into production - we would like to test its ABDM functionality. And hence we need your help.
If you would like to help us in testing, please submit this form: https://forms.gle/yFFTJyrDhEFpsq296
Since our focus is bottom 90%, for now, we are only testing for Android users. This means you can only help us in testing if you are an Android user.
What is in it for you?
The way UPI is the default payment medium of Indians (irrespective of income bucket), ABDM is going to be the default operating architecture for every Healthcare/Healthtech/Insurance company. And we have an audacious plan, if things go according to our plan, to make these operating architectures available for other Healthcare/Healthtech/Insurance companies at almost zero cost. This means you will be helping yourself
