The Garuda Personal Health Passport (PHP) platform will mark as India’s first successful POC to store medical data in line with the National Digital Health Mission
Rishabh Sharma, India’s AI Pioneer, Founder of Thalamus Irwine in partnership with ITI, Ministry of Telecom has successfully developed a fully integrated digital personal health passport (COVID Passport) named The Garuda Personal Health Passport (PHP).
Sharma has, also to his distinct credit, developed the world’s fastest AI-enabled COVID-19 sero-survey platform.
The Garuda Personal Health Passport (PHP) platform will mark as India’s first successful POC to store medical data in line with the National Digital Health Mission.
With this India becomes the first country in the world to develop a fully integrated digital personal health passport platform to verify and manage the health, immunisation, and communicable disease status of travellers seamlessly for both consumers and institutions.
Garuda PHP will enable passengers, airports, airlines, medical and immigration authorities to easily and securely manage and verify the health risk and immunity status of passengers without creating an additional burden at any point along the experience.
"This digital health passport allows for all of these critically sensitive items to be stored, carried, and transmitted securely leveraging a cutting edge blockchain technology. We need people to know that their data and personal information is not just verified and will be accepted at their destination, but that it will never be a risk of disclosure or breach,” said Sharma.
Unlike other passports which are specific to certain jurisdictions, Garuda PHP has been designed as a global solution so that using this indigenous technology other nations are also able to roll out personal health passport to their citizens.
With the entire world betting on vaccines to restart and liberate global international travel, Garuda PHP will serve as the central coordinating and enabling platform to manage, connect, protect, and communicate the policies and requirements set out by every government to enter their country.
