A Web based platform e-Manas has been developed by International Institute of Information Technology, Bengaluru (IIIT-B) and NIMHANS.

Karnataka has been a pioneer in mental healthcare services in India, both in the public and private sectors. Continuing in this tradition, the launch of the e-Manas platform is aimed to propel the digitization of mental healthcare services and will help provide compliance with the Mental Health Care Act, 2017 and Rules (2018).

This platform would maintain basic medical records (BMR) of patients seeking OPD and IPD (out and in patient department) services.

This web solution brings all the stakeholders in mental health in Karnataka together: Karnataka State Mental Health Authority, Karnataka State Mental Health Review Board, all public and private mental healthcare establishments, mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses), persons with mental illness and their caregivers.

The key features of the solution include,

  • A  state-wide registry of all facilities and professionals providing mental health care with online registration.
  • Recording of basic health records of patients
  • Access to patient health records by registered professionals with the consent of the patient
  • Facilities for patients and caregivers to register grievances
  • Integration with other health services like Ayushman Bharath – Arogya Karnataka, 104, 108, etc.

Access to this portal will be made available to all mental health professionals and establishments in Karnataka, in the public and private sector.
