The service is catering daily to around 90,000 patients across the country, signalling a wide adoption by patients as well as doctors, and specialists across the country.

The leading 10 states in terms of adoption of eSanjeevani are Andhra Pradesh (37,04,258), Karnataka (22,57,994), Tamil Nadu (15,62,156), Uttar Pradesh (13,28,889), Gujarat (4,60,326), Madhya Pradesh (4,28,544), Bihar (4,04,345), Maharashtra (3,78,912), West Bengal (2,74,344), Kerala (2,60,654), the ministry stated.

The service is operational through two modes -- eSanjeevani AB-HWC (doctor-to-doctor telemedicine platform) that is based on hub and spoke model and eSanjeevani OPD - (patient to doctor telemedicine platform) which provides outpatient services to citizens in the confines of their homes.
