Creation of Health ID (now known as ABHA) is voluntary. National Health Authority (NHA) is creating awareness among the citizens about the usages and advantages of Health ID to maximize participation from citizen.

Government has taken various steps to ensure that the benefits of the mission reach every citizen. Inclusion is one of the key principles of ABDM. The digital health ecosystem created by ABDM supports continuity of care across primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare in a seamless manner. It aids availability of health care services particularly in remote and rural areas through various technology interventions like telemedicine etc.
