What is ABHA?
ABHA stands for Ayushman Bharat Health Account.
It is an account that is created under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission to simplify health management and tracking. ABHA gives an ABHA address, ABHA number, and a consent pin.
ABHA address is used to enable the sharing of medical records with the concerned doctors or healthcare facilities. ABHA number is a 16-digit number that gives a unique identity to your card and the consent pin is used when you want to grant access to your health records folder to someone.
You can create the ABHA using healthid.ndhm.gov.in or Eka Care website or app.
Here are some ABHA card benefits -
ABHA stores your medical record securely
Your medical records have private data as well as it is precious for your health management. That’s why it must be stored in a safe and secure place where privacy can't be compromised. ABHA brought exactly that space for your medical records. Once you upload your medical records to your ABHA, you don’t need to care about its security at all.
ABHA let you easily access your health records
We need medical records at the time of consulting a doctor, monitoring our progress, planning a treatment, etc. What comes next is a treasure hunt of old reports and prescriptions, which often turn out to be disappointing. After all, we were never habituated to saving them properly at a place like we do with other documents. However, ABHA allows you a secure space to organize your medical records on your phone where you can easily access them.
Share your medical records with your doctors
If you also don’t like to carry a paper file of medical records to your every consultation, ABHA will solve your problem. Anyone can share their medical records with the help of the PHR address given by ABHA. It takes a few seconds and all your health-related files will be in the doctor’s phone.
After creating ABHA, one can easily access to healthcare professional registry and health facility registry. It gives the compiled details of registered doctors and health centers. If anyone is looking for the right healthcare facilities in India, ABHA can turn out to be extremely helpful as it gives access to HPR and HFR.
ABHA helps in the prevention of serious diseases
