 Associated Hospital, GMC Rajouri is top performer among all Care Facilities in token generation under Scan and Share Scheme of Ayushmaan Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) in JKUT generated a total of 100072 tokens so far.

NHA has introduced QR-Code based solution in ABDM empaneled facilities to enable patients to scan QR code of the facility and share their demographic details and health records. This minimises the problem of long queues at health facilities and entry of incomplete and inaccurate data.

The QRs codes are displayed at multiple places in the waiting and registration area, patients could easily identify them and scan them using their smartphones for faster OPD registration. There are various ABDM-enabled smartphone Personal Health Record (PHR) players in the market that allow individuals to create their Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) number, link and store their health records against their ABHA number and share them with health facilities for various care purposes. These applications also enable the scanning of QR codes in the OPD registration area, allowing individuals to transfer their demographic information (name, age, gender, and ABHA number) to the Health Management Information system (HMIS) of the hospital concerned.

The hospital's HMIS solution consumes this information and generates a token number or queue number for the patients. This token number is then sent to the mobile phone of the patients who can wait at designated areas until their token number is displayed on the overhead screens. Once a patient whoAbout Scan and Shareber is displayed on the screen arrives at the counter, the operator retrieves the demographic details from the system based on the token number and print the OPD card. This process drastically reduces the wait time for patients, ensure accurate data entry into HMIS, doing away with the need for patient to stand in incessantly long queues. Patients only visit the counter for any applicable payments and availing their OPD card.

Prof. (Dr.) A.S Bhatia, Principal GMC Rajouri and Dr. Mehmood Hussain Bajar Medical Superintendent, GMCH Rajouri appreciated the concerned staff for their commendable job.

Medical Superintendent said that GMC Rajouri remains committed to provide quality healthcare services to the beneficiaries and in implementing Centrally Sponsored Schemes in the larger interest of patient care.
