MeitY develops an online registration framework portal, a digital India initiative

Online Registration System (ORS) is a framework to link various hospitals across the country for Aadhaar-based online registration and appointment system, where counter-based OPD registration and appointment system through Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) has been digitalized. The application has been hosted on the cloud services of National Informatics Centre (NIC). Portal facilitates online appointments with various departments of different Hospitals using eKYC data of Aadhaar number, if the patient’s mobile number is 20 registered with UIDAI. And in case mobile number is not registered with UIDAI it uses the patient’s name. New Patient will get appointment as well as Unique Health Identification (UHID) number. If the Aadhaar number is already linked with the UHID number, then the appointment number will be given and UHID will remain same. One of the features that ORS provides is that of booking a medical appointment online, get an OPD appointment, lab reports and blood availability in any government hospital of any state registered in ORS.
