Most people are surprised that they have no idea how this ID is made. When people came to know about this, they posted on social media that this ID has been created without their knowledge and the number of users posting such posts is constantly increasing. They have the same question that UHID was provided without information. However, UHID is not the new concept of the Indian government, but has been previously exposed on several occasions.
Here we are telling you what is the health ID according to the government. Health ID is an initiative of the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) of the Government of India. According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, NDHM works with the objective of strengthening the integration of digital health infrastructure in the country. Simply put, the health service in India is to be made digital through this initiative.
What is Health ID?
There is a plan to bring digital systems in the health service infrastructure in the country. Through these systems, together the health service, employees, health records and patients and their health history will be covered. Health ID is a very important system to keep NDHM working. According to the information available on the NDHM website, Health ID will help standardize the identity of someone in the Health Service Providers. It has been said that this is the only way to check whether the medical records prepared are being issued to the appropriate person.
This health ID is generated once and is then used to identify individuals in a specific way. Through this, they will be verified and their health records will be distributed to many systems and stakeholders. Simply put, Health ID will be the way for all people to keep health records everywhere and in health service.
Several tweets have been made on the micro-blogging site Twitter regarding the issue, which makes it clear that none of the vaccine users had UHID. At the same time, if you try to create a Health ID by visiting the NDHM website, you will get this response – currently Health ID is only in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu, Ladakh, Lakshadweep and Puducherry only. Can be made.
It is clear that if a citizen of the country tries to create a Health ID in other parts, it will not be possible. At the same time, UHID cannot be obtained from anywhere other than the portal being used for vaccine registration. That is, it is clear that at present, the Covid-19 vaccination campaign is the only way, so far, Health ID is being created.
The FAQ page on the MoHFW website suggests that any health care provider coming to the public hospital, community health center, health and wellness center in India and the National Health Infrastructure Registry will be able to support users through their health IDs. Vaccination centers have been set up since the epidemic in India, where health IDs are being prepared through the available information of those taking vaccine doses. But the question arises whether users were asked during the issuance of this health ID. Not a single user has agreed to this on social media, everyone says that they have no information about it. If you have also seen the Health ID on the Vaccination Certificate after applying the vaccine for the first time, then it is likely that the ID has been created during the vaccination center.
According to MoHFW’s website, registration of Health ID requires name, date of birth, gender, mobile number and email. It should be noted that according to the MoHFW website, Aadhaar is not mandatory for Health ID. Whether or not to provide Aadhaar for Health ID depends on the user.
This makes it clear that people can create their health account using their basic demographic information with digitally verified mobile number or email ID. However, during this time people at the vaccine center were forced to bring their Aadhaar card at the time of vaccination while they had registered on the CoWin portal using a separate identification. A lot of places have been asked to share Aadhaar information at the vaccine center.
