Under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), over 10 crore health records have been digitally linked to the Ayushman Bharat Health Account, a move that helps people compile a thorough medical history across various healthcare providers.
So far, more over 30 crore people have created their own Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHA). Digitally linking their health records to their ABHA accounts will allow citizens to manage and access their records whenever it’s convenient for them.
It will make it possible for citizens to compile thorough medical histories from different healthcare providers, enhancing clinical decision making. A digital exchange of relevant health records between citizens and ABDM-registered healthcare providers is also feasible. “I am happy to share that ABDM has touched another milestone. With 10 crore health records linked to Ayushman Bharat Health Account, we appreciate all citizens for coming forward to support our efforts in making healthcare digital in India.” The National Health Authority’s CEO, Dr. R. S. Sharma, stated in a tweet.
With the assistance of state governments, numerous health facilities around the nation are implementing this digital linkage of people’s health records with ABHA. The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), which aims to build the foundation required to enable the nation’s integrated digital health infrastructure, will be implemented nationwide, the prime minister announced in September 2021.
