This page describes all the tagging features and unique values which could be useful to tag any feature related to healthcare or health facilities present in India. Here is the link of the parent project of healthcare which explains all the tagging schema globally.
How to Map
If you don't know what kind of healthcare is being provided, you can just use healthcare=yes.
|healthcare=hospital||Institutions for health care providing treatment by specialised staff and equipment, and typically providing nursing care for longer-term patient stays; i.e. "inpatient" care.|
|healthcare=clinic||(clinic or Polyclinic) clinic is a healthcare facility that is primarily focused on the care of outpatients. A polyclinic is a clinic or health care facility that provides both general and specialist examinations and treatments for a wide variety of diseases and injuries to outpatients and is usually independent of a hospital. Key is "outpatient" care.|
|healthcare=centre||A group of medical practices in the same building location. Unclear how this differs from a clinic or hospital.|
|healthcare=laboratory||Medical laboratory also called (analytical, diagnostic) is a place that analyzes body fluids such as blood, urine, faeces etc .|
|healthcare=yes||General healthcare facility. To be used only if specifics are unknown or can not be covered by the tagging schema. If this value is used, it is recommended to include some details with the
healthcare:speciality=* as defined below.
Specialities of medical practitioners or other medical facilities
The specialty of a medical practitioner or a medical facility can be tagged using the key
healthcare:speciality=* . The following table shows values which could be used in connection with this key.
Note, if a medical practitioner or a medical facility covers several specializations, they could be separated by a semicolon (';')
