Yamunanagar district is on top in the state in generation of digital health identity cards (ID).

A total of 1,01,018 health IDs have been created in the state. Of these, 27,836 IDs are from Yamunanagar district.

“Till January 17, 1,01,018 IDs have been generated in Haryana, which is at second place after Gujarat. Yamunanagar stands first in the state and has generated 27,836 health IDs,” said Dr Vijay Dahiya, Civil Surgeon of Yamunanagar district.

In the supervision of Dr Dahiya, health IDs of all citizens are being made by Health Department, Yamunanagar, under National Health Digital Mission through the non-communicable diseases (NCD) programme.

On August 15, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission which aimed to provide digital health IDs to all Indian citizens to help hospitals, insurance firms and citizens access health records electronically when required.

The Civil Surgeon said that the health ID was a randomly generated 14-digit number that could be used for unique identification, authentication and threading of the beneficiary’s health records after acquiring informed consent from the user.

“The goal of creating these IDs is to have safer and efficient digital health records for every citizen for better access to healthcare by all,” said Dr Vijay Dahiya. He said these IDs would allow citizens to access and share their health data with their consent with participating healthcare providers and payers.

Dr Poonam Chaudhary, Deputy Civil Surgeon (NCD), said that these digital records would go a long way in managing the health data of the citizens in a paperless way.

“These IDs are being created at the ground level by health providers (community health officers and staff nurses). Any person can get his or her ID created by simply getting registered on Comprehensive Primary Health Care and National Communicable Diseases (CPHC-NCD) portal through health provider. For this purpose, he or she should bring the Aadhaar card at the time of registration,” said Dr Poonam Chaudhary.
