This takes the tally of ABDM integrated service applications to 40 since the national launch was announced on September 27, 2021, an NHA statement said.
The ABDM partners ecosystem now consists of 16 government applications and 24 private sector applications. The NHA under its flagship scheme ABDM announced successful integration of additional 13 digital health solutions in the ABDM sandbox environment in the last three months, the statement said.
