Current Affair 1:


A Digital Public Good Created by National Health Authority, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India to enable standardized and faster claims processing for better patient experience with reduced operations costs.

NHCX is a communication protocol facilitating the exchange of health claim information between payers, providers, and beneficiaries.

The National Health Claims Exchange works similarly to the internet and email exchange networks in that it enables the transfer of data packets from one point to another (destination). Just as routing switches or email gateways ensure that messages are sent and received with the appropriate levels of consistency, security, privacy, and durability. National Health Claims Exchange serves as a protocol for exchanging claims-related information among various actors, including payers, providers, beneficiaries, regulators, and observers.
