It is planned to put it in public domain in the near future.The mapping provides data only on public health facilities presently, which shall soon be expanded to cover private facilities as well," Nadda said.Health Management Information System (HMIS) is a web-based monitoring system that has been put in place by the Union Health Ministry to monitor its health programmes and provide key inputs for policy formulation and interventions.It was launched in October 2008 with uploading of district consolidated figures.
