All payments at AIIMS-New Delhi will be fully digitized from April 1, 2023, with the leading healthcare institute introducing smart cards alongside UPI (Unified Payments Interface) and card payments at counters.
“AIIMS New Delhi is introducing #SmartCard in addition to UPI and card payments at all counters. All payments at AIIMS will be fully digitized from April 1, 2023,” reads a tweet.
The institute has also decided to promote the use of Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) IDs for the registration of new and follow-up outpatient clinic (OPD) cases.
According to a bureau memorandum issued on November 15, this will involve rolling out the National Health Authority’s (NHA) “Scan and Share QR Code” solution in all OPDs at AIIMS New Delhi to facilitate rapid registration and patients Provide a queue number upon arrival.
Dedicated counters and kiosks will operate from at least 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. to facilitate the creation of ABHA IDs for patients without a smartphone.
This project will be piloted in the new Rajkumari Amrit Kaur OPD from November 21st and will be included in mission mode in all OPDs of AIIMS New Delhi from January 1st.
“Patients visiting AIIMS OPDs have been found to have long queues for registration. Despite the availability of the Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) in many patients, patient demographic information is manually entered for registration.
“At the time of registering with ABHA-ID, OTP is often delayed. The maximum attempts to resend OTP are also limited to three times,” the memorandum said.
The NHA’s scan-and-share QR code solution has shown promising results in reducing registration time, and also helped streamline the patient’s journey upon arrival at the hospital, according to the memorandum.
The solution is also biometric, allowing for facial authentication to allow sharing of ABHA ID details.
