Bhubaneswar Startup Issues Swasthya National Health Identity Card
Swasthya National Health Identity Card is a small ATM-like card and all your health records will be stored digitally in that. The next time you visit a health care facility or a physician, you will not need to carry all your diagnostic or path-lab reports but this card.
The Centre has entrusted a city-based startup firm to carry out the job and issue the health cards to the citizens. The firm will issue the health card on a pilot basis in Bhubaneswar. Later, it will extend the service to other parts of the state and the country.
“Users will have an online account linked with the health card. Path-lab reports and prescription would be uploaded on the account, which will be accessed by health care centres or diagnostic centres to know one’s medical history. This will help them treat the patients accordingly,” said Abanis Nayak, founder of the Swasthya National Health Identity Card Platform.
Abanis attended a two-day conference of entrepreneurs organised by the Niti Aayog in New Delhi on August 21 and 22. He made a presentation before the council of ministers and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the health card for the citizens and his idea got approved. Consequently, he decided to start introducing the health card to the citizens from Bhubaneswar.
Anyone can get the card by filling up a registration form available at health care centres including path-labs and diagnostic centres. The service will also be available online shortly. The data on the card will be stored either by the users or the health care centres.
