New Delhi: India’s largest digital healthcare platform MediBuddy has announced its association with the Government of India’s Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) as an integrated app partner.
With this partnership, MediBuddy has incorporated the National Health Authority’s (NHA) Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA), allowing users to generate their own personalized Ayushman Bharat Health Account number through the MediBuddy app. The ABHA integration on the MediBuddy app is a part of the company’s initiatives to further digitize the health records of millions of its users.
ABDM is a digital framework that will enable patients, doctors and healthcare professionals to safely and securely share digital health records on a single platform. It aims to develop the backbone necessary to support the integrated digital health infrastructure of the country. It will bridge the existing gap amongst different stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem through digital highways.
Users can access and link their Personal Health Records (PHR) using the ABHA number to create and update their health history, all in one place. They can also securely grant access to medical professionals as and when needed. This will ensure a safe and efficient flow of information, bridging the gap that often exists between patients and caregivers due to a lack of medical history. Basic demographic and contact information will be required to issue a Health ID, which MediBuddy will provide to the ABDM system.
The ID will be used to uniquely identify individuals, authenticate them, and retain their own and family’s health records in the ecosystem, hence improving the overall healthcare experience.
Commenting on this partnership, Satish Kannan, Co-founder & CEO at MediBuddy, said, “By launching the Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission, the government has taken a giant step forward in the healthcare industry. We are thrilled to have partnered with them to assist millions of users in creating unique health IDs, enabling centralized digital health records. Our initiatives are aligned with the Government of India’s steps to enable ease of access to quality health care for people across the country.”
