Aadhaar-enabled biometric attendance system for Health Department staff.

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) For The Department Of Health
The Department of Health Care is one of the fastest-growing among all the governmental departments in India. The health care professionals have to work with utmost dedication to ensure that the patients receive quick attention and good care. However, it is not always so. The Health Department regularly receives several complaints regarding the governmental doctors and other health care professionals for reporting late or remaining absent. The health department has recently introduced the Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) to put an end to these practices completely. The AEBAS equipment is being installed in all the government-run hospitals and health care centers to monitor staff-attendance.

Aadhaar e-KYC
The Aadhaar card issued by the UIDAI has the demographic information and the biometric details of an individual living in India. It also has a unique 12-digit number for identification.  Today, the Aadhaar card serves as the most important government-issued documents to prove the identity of a citizen. Aadhaar is essential for all citizens of India to avail of many services, welfare benefits and subsidies from the government. Through the process of Aadhaar authentication, the identity of an individual can also be verified easily.

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System Or AEBAS
Biometric authentication devices are being installed in the government office to mark the attendance of the employees working for the respective departments.

  • The devices for authentication include desktop devices and tablets. 
  • The Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System allows recording the attendance of an individual employee by using his/her biometric details. 
  • The biometric detail gets matched to the biometric information of the individual maintained in the database of the UIDAI.

The Government of India introduced this system to increase the productivity of individuals working under various governmental departments.

The Important Features Of AEBAS

Given below are the major features of Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System

  • Real-time monitoring of individual attendance.
  • Attendance marked through Aadhaar authentication.
  • Authentication based on the fingerprint and retina scan.
  • No requirement for specialized algorithms or hardware.
  • Self-sustainable system.
  • Time taken is quite minimal compared to the conventional methods - anywhere between  1-11 seconds (Depends on whether you use Wi-Fi or GPRS).
  • Can support multiple platforms.

The following are some of the major factors that led to the introduction of AEBAS in the health care department:

  • The employees in the health care department remaining absent/irregular.
  • The productivity and quality of services provided to the patients being affected.
  • Lack of reliability on the conventional methods of marking attendance.
  • Possibility of time - theft and errors

The Benefits Of AEBAS For The Health Department Staff

Given below are some of the major benefits of introducing AEBAS for the health department:

  • An employee cannot mark his/her attendance in a backdate.
  • Keeps a track of the time of the entry and exit.
  • The hours spent at work can be tracked correctly.
  • You cannot mark the attendance of an employee who has taken an unauthorized leave

Several doctors run a private practice during hospital hours. A good number of them do not come for work or turn up late and get their attendance marked using the help of co-workers. The biometric system for attendance put in by the health department has also not been successful in taking care of these issues. The introduction of AEBAS ensures that the employees are regular and punctual and that the patients get timely attention and good healthcare.
