Eka Care becomes first private healthcare platform to rollout Health ID under Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission

Private healthcare platform, Eka Care has become the first private healthcare platform to facilitate the creation of Health ID under Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission (ABDM). 

After PM Modi’s announcement on 27th September 2021, there were several companies lined up to facilitate the creation of health Ids.

ABDM’s initiative has opened up a completely new chapter in the healthcare industry. Under this scheme, a unique Digital Health ID will be provided to the people, which will link with all the health records of the individual.

Speaking on the development, Vikalp Sahni, CEO & Co-founder, Eka Care said, “This is the beginning of new healthcare infrastructure in India. After revolutionizing the finance sector with UPI, the government has taken up a massive step in the healthcare industry. We are super delighted to facilitate the creation of health ID and storing of health records on our platform. To support this initiative, we are also offering free storage up to 10GB to each individual, to store their health records.”

The creation of Health Ids will standardize the process of identifying an individual across healthcare providers. The aim is to ensure that the medical records which get created are issued to the right individual or get accessed by health information users through the individual’s appropriate consent.

To issue a Health ID to an individual, we will require basic demography and contact details and pass them on to the ABDM system. The ID will be used for uniquely identifying persons, authenticating them, and maintaining their own and family’s health records (only with the informed consent of the individual) across multiple systems and stakeholders.
