Paytm ABHA Health Locker also allows users to book appointments at certain hospitals using the QR code helping them to skip long queues. A user can upload documents like health insurance policy, diagnostic reports, prescriptions, medicine bills, Covid vaccine certificates PMJAY cards to name a few, with the help of the Paytm ABHA Health Locker. Approved by the National Health Authority, data on paytm Health Locker is built with robust security and encryption mechanisms, to ensure privacy of all its users.
“We are a certified Ayush Bharat Digital Mission Public Health Record app. Just as we stopped carrying cash, it is now time to stop carrying medical records with a Digital Health Locker, particularly in case of an emergency. Our aim is to ensure that digital health services reach the maximum number of people, reinforcing the healthcare services”, said Paytm spokesperson.
