NEW DELHI: As Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission crossed the landmark of four crores of digitally-linked health records, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said the Government was committed to building a robust, interoperable and inclusive digital health ecosystem for a healthy India.
“Milestone Moment! Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission crosses the landmark of 4 crores digitally linked health records. PM Narendra Modi ji’s Govt is committed to building a robust, inter-operable and inclusive digital health ecosystem for a healthy India,” Mandaviya said in a tweet.
The flagship scheme Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) is making steady progress in building a comprehensive digital health ecosystem for the country.
According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, with over 4 crore digital health records linked to the ABHA accounts of individuals, the scheme has crossed a significant milestone.
“More than 29 crore citizens have generated their unique Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts (ABHA) so far,” the ministry said. With their health records linked to their ABHA accounts digitally, citizens will be able to access and manage these records as per convenience.
This enables citizens to create a comprehensive medical history across various healthcare providers thereby improving clinical decision-making. Elaborating on ABDM’s role in digitising health records, Dr RS Sharma, CEO of the National Health Authority (NHA), said, as the implementing agency for ABDM, the NHA is working closely with different stakeholders to ensure that the benefits of digital health services can be availed by more citizens.
