Digital health ecosystem being built by ABDM

Individuals will be able to connect with professionals and facilities digitally by linking these digital records to their ABHA and get quality and affordable health services irrespective of geographic distance

A comprehensive digital health ecosystem for the country is being built by the National Health Authority (NHA) under its flagship scheme Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM). ABDM, since nationwide launch in September 2021, has achieved significant growth with over 23 crore ABHA numbers (earlier known as Health ID), 1.14 lakh health facilities registered in the Health Facility Registry (HFR), 33 thousand healthcare professionals under the Healthcare Professionals Registry (HPR), 6.6 lakh ABHA app downloads and 3.4 lakh health records linked to ABHA of individuals.

Digitisation of health records at the point of creation is now possible as more individuals, healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, paramedics and health facilities like hospitals, nursing homes, wellness centres, clinics, diagnostic labs, pharmacies join ABDM. Individuals can use the ABHA app or any other personal health record (PHR) app to scan and save their records for digitisation of old health records. Individuals will be able to connect with professionals and facilities digitally by linking these digital records to their ABHA and get quality and affordable health services irrespective of geographic distance.

NHA will recognise the top performing states/UTs, districts and health facilities (public as well as private) for their contribution under ABDM, acknowledging the cooperation and active involvement of the respective States/UTs in taking the mission forward and improving access and affordability of healthcare services.

The States/UTs, districts and health facilities contributing the most in a 50-day period from 01 August 2022 to 19 September 2022 would be recognised during the first anniversary of the scheme under four categories as follows:

Category A: States/UTs with highest number of health records linked to ABHA(s) in the state/UT from 01 August 2022 to 19 September 2022 per one lakh population.

Category B: Districts with highest number of health records linked to ABHA(s) in the district from 01 August 2022 to 19 September 2022 per one lakh population.

Category C: States/UTs achieving highest percentage saturation in population of HFR and HPR registries in private and public Sector by 19 September 2022.

Category D: Facilities from government and private sector with highest number of health records linked to ABHA(s) in 50-day period from 01 August 2022 to 19 September 2022.

On the basis of number of health records linked to ABHA numbers within 50 days period from 01 August 2022 to 19 September 2022, NHA will recognise top performing ABDM integrators (digital health solutions integrated with the scheme) in addition to the above categories. The top performing integrators from government and public sector shall be recognised in separate categories.
