Steps to download the report:User’s privacy is very important for ABDM, which believes that users are rightful owners of their data, and can make rational decisions associated with its use. As healthcare is a sensitive subject, ABDM does not want to restrict users and enable them to link different sets of health data with different ABHA or Health IDs. For instance, if a user wishes to use a separate ABHA to access data related to their sexual history, ABDM will allow this completely in such a case.
