Ayushman Bharat Health Account - ABHA

Think of a situation where you are based in Surat and want to consult a doctor in New Delhi. How do you send your reports? You can either send them by courier or through WhatsApp, provided you have the mobile number of the doctor.

Now think of a scenario where you want to take multiple opinions. You carry all your files to every doctor you visit. To add to your agony, if your doctor asks you for previous reports that you aren't carrying, you go through the struggle of making another appointment to get a more comprehensive consultation.


With an ABHA (Ayushman Bharat Health Account) Card, you are carrying all your health records in your pocket without actually carrying them physically. Now, you can save, access, and share your health records digitally with anyone you like. The ecosystem can consist of your doctors, pharmacists, labs, and even friends and family who are always eager to consult on your behalf.
