"Gujarat Chief Minister valedictory address at the Prof Bhikhu Parekh Seminar at Gandhinagar"

Gandhinagar, Wednesday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today called for synergy between the storehouses of knowledge in the universities with the human resources for nation building.

He recalled that universities at Nalanda, Taxashila and Vallabhi are 1,800 years old. Ironically, theses centres of excellence had maintained their distinction even during the 800 years of invasions in the medieval period, but unfortunately lost the soul and spirit in the post-Independence period.

Mr. Modi was addressing the valedictory function of the Prof Bhikhu Parekh Seminar on ‘Qualitative Improvement in Higher Education’, organized by Gujarat Government’s Higher Education Department, at Mahatma Mandir here.

Seminar on ‘Qualitative Improvement in Higher Education’

He called for the need to free the universities from the burden of administrative rigmarole to let them focus on teaching and research. He listed the areas in which India could excel and bridge the huge gap – notably in defence equipment, shipping and automobile sectors. He said that Gujarat Government has introduced training programmes for skill development, raising the importance of it is in Gujarat.

Mr. Modi drew comparison of today’s seminal seminar to invoke new ideas for higher education in the 21st Century with Swami Vivekanand’s spiritual speech eulogizing India’s spirit of ‘vasudhaiva kutumbakam’ that inspired America this day in the 19th Century – in sharp contrast to the inhuman terror attack that shocked America this day in the 20th Century.

He suggested the universities became self-reliant, shared their knowledge in events like Krishi Mahotsav and Jyotigram projects. He suggested law students take internship while learning and engineering students’ exposure in development projects, he asked. There is need to link the universities to explosion of knowledge around the world.

Lord Bhikhu Parekh welcomed the initiative to improve quality of higher education through at seminars through discussion. He inspired the students to go abroad for higher studies and research, exchange of faculties between Indian and foreign universities.

Others who spoke and attended the one-day seminar included Gujarat’s Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasma, Industries Minister Saurabh Patel, Minister of State for Education Vasuben Trivedi, vice-chancellors and registrar of universities, academics and researchers.

PM-DHM will create a seamless online platform that will enable interoperability within the digital health ecosystem

In a historic initiative, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will launch the Pradhan Mantri Digital Health Mission (PM-DHM) on 27th September 2021 at 11 AM via video conferencing, which will be followed by his address on the occasion.

The pilot project of National Digital Health Mission had been announced by the Prime Minister from the ramparts of Red Fort on 15th August, 2020. Currently, PM-DHM is being implemented in pilot phase in six Union Territories.

The nation-wide rollout of PM-DHM coincides with NHA celebrating the third anniversary of Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB PM-JAY). Union Health Minister will be present on the occasion.

About Pradhan Mantri Digital Health Mission (PM-DHM)

Based on the foundations laid down in the form of Jan Dhan, Aadhaar and Mobile (JAM) trinity and other digital initiatives of the government, PM-DHM will create a seamless online platform through the provision of a wide-range of data, information and infrastructure services, duly leveraging open, interoperable, standards-based digital systems while ensuring the security, confidentiality and privacy of health-related personal information. The Mission will enable access and exchange of longitudinal health records of citizens with their consent.

The key components of PM-DHM include a health ID for every citizen that will also work as their health account, to which personal health records can be linked and viewed with the help of a mobile application; a Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR) and Healthcare Facilities Registries (HFR) that will act as a repository of all healthcare providers across both modern and traditional systems of medicine. This will ensure ease of doing business for doctors/hospitals and healthcare service providers.

PM-DHM Sandbox, created as a part of the Mission, will act as a framework for technology and product testing that will help organizations, including private players, intending to be a part of National Digital Health Ecosystem become a Health Information Provider or Health Information User or efficiently link with building blocks of PM-DHM.

This Mission will create interoperability within the digital health ecosystem, similar to the role played by the Unified Payments Interface in revolutionizing payments. Citizens will only be a click-away from accessing healthcare facilities.
