    Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Id to Contain Health Records

    The digital Health ID, which will be provided to each Indian under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, will comprise of a 14-digit health identification number. This ID will act as the health account number of the ID holder as it will contain all health records of the person. This will make it easier for people to access their medical records and share them with the doctor when required.

    The health data stored under digital Health ID will include the details of every doctor visited, every test taken, every diagnosis, every disease and all medicines taken by the ID holder. This will allow easy access and sharing of health records to doctors no matter which part of the country the beneficiary is admitted to. It will also digitally connect hospitals across the country with each other.

    However, applying for a digital health ID is completely voluntary and does not involve any costs.

    To create the digital Health ID, people will have to provide their basic details along with their Aadhaar number or mobile number. They can link their health records to the Health ID with the help of a mobile application, Healthcare Facilities Registries (HFR) and Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR). They can also use these platforms to access their health data.

    Previously, the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) was also launched on 15th August on a pilot basis across six states and union territories. More than 1 lakh unique Health IDs have been created so far under NDHM.

    PM Modi also stated that a comprehensive network of AIIMS and other modern healthcare institutions was being established pan India to ensure better access to medical facilities for the people. The government is also working to establish one medical college for every three Lok Sabha constituencies. Moreover, they are also working towards strengthening the network of primary health and wellness centre in villages.
