RSBY has become the largest most diverse health insurance program in the world. It is a biometric smartcard that is issued to over 36 million families throughout India. It is delivering health care throughout rural and urban india, tracking vaccinations and building a very basic medical record all with the smallest technology and operating budget of any major system in the world.
