ABHA-Based Scan And Share Service

ABHA-Based Scan And Share Service:

The National Health Authority (NHA) has achieved a milestone of generating over 3 crore tokens for Out-Patient Department (OPD) registrations through the ABHA-based Scan and Share service.

  • It enables patients to conveniently register for OPD appointments by scanning a QR code displayed at the OPD registration counter.
  • It has eliminated the need to wait in long queues for appointments, benefiting vulnerable groups such as the elderly, pregnant women, and those with mobility challenges.
  • Uttar Pradesh has generated the maximum tokens followed by Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Jammu and Kashmir.
  • This service was launched under the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) in 2022.
  • ABHA is a unique 14-digit number used to link all the health records of a person, which intends to create a digital health ecosystem & aims to promote the digitisation of healthcare.
