Dr. R.S. Sharma, CEO, National Health Authority informed that under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), which aims to help people create a comprehensive medical history across various healthcare providers, over 100 million health records have been linked digitally to the Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA). In addition, approximately 300 million citizens have generated their unique Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHA).
The citizens will be easily able to access and manage their health records when digitized to their ABHA accounts. It will help the citizens in creating a comprehensive medical history across various healthcare providers, which would therefore improve clinical decision-making. Citizens can also share relevant health records with ABDM-registered healthcare providers digitally.
This digital linking of individual health records with ABHA is being carried out extensively across different health facilities of the country with the support of state governments.
