Use of Aadhaar at Health Facilities


The Health Ministry has initiated the process of seeding of Aadhar of patients in health IT applications. Aadhar of patients is being linked at health facilities considering different advantages such as to avoid duplicity of Health ID, to facilitate aggregation of health records of patients, to help achieve interoperability & exchange of health records and to control/check misuse in drug dispensing etc. However seeding of Aadhar has not been made mandatory yet for all applications.

This is being implemented in various healthcare facilities of Central / State Government in a phased manner.

Provision for training of staff has been made through vendors empaneled by NIC, and financial assistance is being provided under National Health Mission (NHM) as per the proposal received from States/UTs in their Programme Implementation Plan (PIP). Management of data collection and administration is being taken care of as per the guidelines issued by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).
