365 Hospitals Adopt Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission's Scan & Share Service

Union Health Minister hailed the quick and queue less OPD registration under Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission

The National Health Authority (NHA) under its flagship scheme Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) introduced the Scan and Share service for faster OPD registrations in October 2022. Within five months of its launch, the service has been adopted by 365 hospitals. The QR-code based instant registration service has helped over 5 lakh patients save time by drastically reducing the wait times in the (Out Patient Department) OPD registration areas of the participating hospitals.

Union Health Minister hailed the quick and queue less OPD registration under Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission in his tweet:

The participating hospitals display their unique QR codes in patient registration areas. The patients can scan the QR code using any health application of their choice (such as ABHA App, Aarogya Setu App, EkaCare, DRiefcase, Bajaj Health, PayTM) and share their ABHA profile (demographic information like name, age, gender, and ABHA number) with the Health Management Information system (HMIS) of the hospital. This enables paper-less registration and thereby instant token generation. The patient saves time and the health facility is able to optimise the need of resources deployed for registration. The patient’s health records also get digitally linked to their ABHA (Ayushman Bharat Health Account) which they can manage and access from their phone anytime anywhere.

Speaking on the vision behind this service innovation, CEO, NHA said, “The scan and share service is a typical example of how technology can be leveraged to provide better services to patients and to improve the system efficiency. With increased adoption, patient registrations can be made effortless, seamless and accurate. Our focus is to work closely with the stakeholders to maximise the impact of ABDM-enabled digital health services.”

The real-time benefits of Scan and Share service are being leveraged by patients across the country. Apart from government hospitals, several private hospitals are also enabling the ABHA-based registrations for their patients. The service is currently live in 125 districts across 25 States/ UTs in the country.
