Secure smartcards


15 February, 2007  

Patients in London can now have their medical histories handy wherever they are, by uploading them onto a new USB plug-in smartcard called the Health eCard.

The card works in any computer that has a USB port and is also compatible with all current GP systems. Buying the card should enable patients to show their records to any medical professional, saving time and improving consultations when their notes are not available.

HealtheSystems hospes to roll out the system nationally in March and are writing to surgeries in the UK to inform them about it.
