The 28 GHz frequency band has become hotly contested territory between the cellular communications and the satellite communications industries in recent times. The cellular communications industry wants the 28 GHz band for providing 5G services whereas a number of existing services of the satellite communication industry are reliant on the band. The Department of Telecommunications is the authority responsible for deciding on the allocation of the band and is currently deliberating how it may be used best. We examine why the allocation of the 28 GHz frequency band is the subject of such heated debate and the impact that the decision of the DoT may have on the satellite and cellular communications industries.

The National Digital Health Mission (“NDHM”) is an ambitious project to increase access to quality healthcare in India, and to use #healthdata for evidence-based policymaking and research. It proposes to increase access to healthcare by aggregating healthcare facilities (e.g., hospitals), professionals (e.g., therapists and doctors), and technology service providers (e.g., mobile applications for telemedicine or mobile applications for storing #electronichealthrecords). It further seeks to enable use of health data by creating and operating a #healthinformationexchange.
The National Health Authority (“NHA”) had released consultation papers on the design and governance of each of the two building blocks of the NDHM- health facilities registry, healthcare professionals’ registry. The NHA proposed the creation of a third building block, namely the unified health interface through another consultation paper. In these two posts we provide an overview of our comments to the three consultation papers. #digitalhealth #unifiedhealthinterface
The NDHM was launched today, nationally, as the “Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission”, after being piloted in the union territories, running a sandbox for testing technology tools, and public consultations through the consultation papers.
