Creating a health ID standardizes the process of identifying individuals across healthcare providers.
Eka Care will be the first private healthcare platform to facilitate the creation of HealthIDs under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission (ABDM).
The ABDM initiative has opened a whole new chapter in the healthcare industry. In this scheme, a unique digital health ID is provided to people and linked to all personal health records.
Vikalp Sahni, CEO and co-founder of EkaCare, said: After revolutionizing the financial sector with UPI, the government took a major step in the healthcare industry. We are very pleased to make it easier to create a health ID and store health records on the platform. To support this initiative, we also offer individuals up to 10GB of free storage to keep their health records. “
Creating a health ID standardizes the process of identifying individuals across healthcare providers. The purpose is to ensure that the medical records created are issued to the appropriate individual or accessible to health information users through the appropriate consent of the individual.
To issue a health ID to an individual, you will need the basic demographic and contact details passed to the ABDM system. IDs are used to uniquely identify and authenticate individuals among multiple systems and stakeholders, and to maintain personal and family health records (only if there is personal informed consent).
Eka Care became the first company to integrate with the CoWIN Portal in June of this year, making it possible to book vaccination slots. The app is available in 12 different languages and is used by more than 1.5 million consumers in 1500 districts of India. Through the app, patients can keep their health records, book doctor appointments, book CoWIN vaccination appointments, and download vaccination certificates. The app also makes it easy for users to talk to their doctor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Eka Care team is working to build a PHR app according to ABDM guidelines to facilitate consent-based record sharing with healthcare providers.
