New Delhi, Oct 10: The National Health Authority (NHA) has achieved a significant milestone by generating over one crore tokens for Out-Patient Department (OPD) registrations using the ABHA-based Scan and Share service.
This paperless service, launched in October 2022 under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), enables patients to scan a QR code at the OPD registration counter and instantly share their ABHA profile for registration. Currently, this service is operational in more than 2,600 health facilities across 419 districts in 33 States and Union Territories of India.
The Scan and Share service has been swiftly adopted by states and Union Territories in public health facilities to efficiently manage queues at patient registration counters, providing a better experience for patients. Data from the ABDM Public Dashboard indicates that the highest usage of the service is at AIIMS in Delhi, Bhopal, and Raipur. Furthermore, nine out of the top fifteen hospitals utilizing this service are located in Uttar Pradesh, with Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir, and Delhi following closely. Government hospitals, including AIIMS in New Delhi, SRN Hospital in Prayagraj, and AIIMS in Raipur, have emerged as top-performing health facilities for the Scan and Share service.
The CEO of NHA emphasized the significance of such digital services, stating, "ABDM aims to add ease and efficiency to healthcare delivery. The Scan and Share service at OPD counters is a simple technological intervention that is helping nearly 1 lakh patients save time spent in hospital queues daily. With the intention to alleviate the pain points of patients when accessing healthcare services, we plan to extend this service to pharmacy counters and laboratories. Our endeavour is to leverage technology to assist elderly patients, pregnant women, and other citizens when accessing healthcare services. ABHA-based registrations will also provide patients with digital access to their prescriptions, pharmacy slips, and diagnostic reports."
To further promote the adoption of the Scan and Share service by hospitals and Digital Solution Companies (DSCs) offering their technology to health facilities, NHA is offering incentives for Scan and Share transactions under ABDM's Digital Health Incentive Scheme (DHIS).
