A large number of Indians (approximately 60 million- a number greater than the combined population of some countries like South Africa) – suffer from mental disorders.
Mr. JP Nadda, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, in his address in the Lok Sabha in May 2016, revealed that according to the National Commission on Macroeconomics and Health (2005) (click here), about 10-20 million Indians were suffering from complex mental disorders like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, whereas nearly 50 million Indians were suffering from common mental disorders like depression and anxiety.
With growing awareness of Mental Health and Mental Illnesses in India, the Mental Healthcare Bill was revised in 2017, bringing reformative changes to enhance the availability and scope of Mental Health services in the Country. To support the mandate of the Mental Healthcare Bill for provisions for maintenance of records and reporting by Mental Health Professionals, and the right of the patient to assess basic medical records (– a person with mental illness is entitled to receive documented medical information, pertaining to his diagnosis, investigation, assessment, and treatment as per the medical record), Ment Doc was initiated as India’s 1st Mental Health EHR (Electronic Health Record) Solution and Practice Management Solution to assist mental health professionals in diagnosis, planning investigations and treatment, recording, scheduling appointments, providing e-prescriptions, manage consultations, etc.
