Existing ABHA app users can also update their previous app versions to the latest one.

The ABHA mobile application enables an individual to create an ABHA address (username@abdm), an easy-to-remember username that can be linked with the 14-digit randomly generated ABHA number. The mobile application also enables users to link their health records created at ABDM-compliant health facilities and view them in their smartphones. The application also allows self-uploading of physical health records in the ABDM compliant health lockers along with sharing of digital health records such as diagnostic reports, prescriptions, CoWIN vaccination certificates,s, etc. after the consent of an individual through the ABDM network.

In addition to this, ABHA mobile application has new functionalities such as editing profiles, linking and unlink ABHA numbers (14 digits) with ABHA addresses.

Elaborating on the ABHA mobile app, Dr. R.S. Sharma, CEO, National Health Authority (NHA) said: “The ABHA app will be instrumental in helping citizens to create their longitudinal health records. The patients can access their health records with the help of their ABHA address in seconds which will empower them in many ways. It will enable them to save their health history on a single platform and access or share their health records anytime and anywhere without a worry of losing them. This digitization of data exchange will ensure better clinical decision making and continuum of care.”
