The Government’s authentic documents exchange platform DigiLocker can now be used as a health locker for storing and accessing health records, such as vaccination records, doctor prescriptions, lab reports and hospital discharge summaries.
This has been made possible after the DigiLocker completed its second level of integration with the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, ABDM.
Earlier, it had completed level 1 integration with ABDM, wherein the platform had added Ayushman Bharat Health Account, ABHA, creation facility for its 13 crore users.
The latest integration will now enable users to utilize DigiLocker as a Personal Health Records App.
In addition to this, ABHA holders can also link their health records from different ABDM-registered health facilities like hospitals and labs and access them via DigiLocker.
Users can also scan and upload their old health records on the App. Further, they can share selected records with ABDM-registered healthcare professionals.
