Bangalore, October 27 2021: Eka Care claims the distinction of being the first private healthcare platform to facilitate the creation of Health ID under Ayushman Bharat Digital Health Mission (ABDM).
After Prime Minister Modi’s announcement on September 27, there were several companies lined up to facilitate creation of health IDs. Under this scheme, a unique Digital Health ID will be provided to the people, which will link with all the health records of the individual.
In order to issue a Health ID to an individual, we will require basic demography and contact details and pass it on to the ABDM system. The ID will be used for uniquely identifying persons, authenticating them and maintaining their own and family’s health records (only with the informed consent of the individual) across multiple systems and stakeholders.
Eka.Care, became the first company to integrate with the CoWIN portal in June this year, allowing booking of vaccination slots. The Eka.Care platform integration with CoWIN offers a bouquet of services: seamless slot booking, pre and post-vaccination tele-consultation, vaccination certificate downloading within minutes.
The Eka Care app is available in 12 different languages and is being used by more than 1.5 million consumers across 1500 districts in India. Through the app, patients can store their health records, book their doctor appointments, book CoWIN vaccination appointments and download vaccination certificates. The app also facilitates users to talk to a doctor 24X7.
