According to the PIB Delhi, the service started from Lady Hardinge Medical College (LHMC) & Smt. Sucheta Kriplani Hospital (SSKH) in New Delhi in October 2022. Within 75 days of its launch, the Scan and Share service has already helped more than 1 lakh patients.

The Scan & Share functionality is one such feature that is helping thousands of patients in India daily. Our team works closely with different hospitals across the country to implement this instant registration service. By simple inter-operability between the user’s selected application and the HMIS at participating health facilities, both the hospitals and patients are able to benefit.”

The service is now adopted in 200+ health facilities across 18 states in India and has been seen as effective in saving patients' time and efforts by enabling instant registration for OPD consultations.

Here's how the Scan and Share service works:
  • Patients need to log in to health applications like the Arogya Setu app, Bajaj Health, ABHA app, and more.
  • The patients need to simply scan the QR Code and share their Ayushman Bharat Health Account(ABHA) or ABHA number profile with the hospital.
  • The personal details of the patient like name, age, gender, guardian’s name, address, mobile number, and others are then shared with the respective Hospital Management Information System and hence ends the process of digital registration.
  • The patient can now just collect their outpatient slip and visit the doctor.
