Now, the people must be aware of certain points regarding the digital health ID and also the process of signing up for the digital health ID.
What is this digital health ID?
According to the official website of National Health Authority, using a Health ID is the first step towards creating safer and efficient digital health records for a person and his or her family. One can opt-in to create a digitally secure Health ID, which allows the person to access and share the health data with his or her consent, with participating healthcare providers and payers.

Health ID is a randomly generated 14 digit number used for the purposes of uniquely identifying persons, authenticating them, and threading their health records (only with their informed consent) across multiple systems and stakeholders.
How to register for Health ID?
One can get a Health ID by self-registration on the Health ID web portal or by downloading ABDM Health Records application from the Google Playstore, as per the National Health Authority website.
