Now that Eka Care is available, storing patient health data has been made easier

The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) in New Delhi granted the health tech firm Eka care permission to allow consumers to create and use their Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) and connect the platform to the Unique Health Interface (UHI).

Digitalization in healthcare is especially important in terms of EMR because many countries around the world, including Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, the United States, France, and Germany, have already achieved the highest EHR adoption rates. India is also embracing digitization, particularly in the fields of EMR and EHR.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of ABDM, and when the process began in 2018, he stated that it contains the potential to make a revolutionary shift in Indian healthcare facilities. This digital initiative would not only create a unique ID for each Indian individual but also a digital registry of all healthcare professionals and facilities. 

"In India, we are not used to storing health records digitally, which results in unnecessary repeat tests and higher treatment costs for patients." In light of this, Vikalp Sahni and Deepak Tuli established Eka Care in December 2020 to help Indians develop their health profile in order to improve health outcomes and lower healthcare costs. For doctors, the company has created an advanced digital clinic management solution. Later, Abhishek Begerhotta joined them as an advisor.

Eka Care, a Bengaluru-based connected healthcare IT platform, raised $15 million in Series A funding on Tuesday, headed by Hummingbird Ventures, with participation from 3one4 Capital, Mirae Assets, Verlinvest, Aditya Birla Ventures, Binny Bansal, Rohit MA, and other investors.

 The Eka Care app is available in 12 different languages and is being used by more than 1.5 million consumers across 1500 districts in India. Through the app, patients can store their health records, book their doctor's appointments, book Cowin vaccination appointments, and download vaccination certificates.

Their aim is to generate and maintain a health profile for every Indian using technology. 

Do you think Eka care will transform the healthcare sector by maintaining India’s digital health ecosystem through ADHM?
