Abstract

The objective of the project is to develop a personal medical smart card for maintaining and transferring patient health records which would act as medical license for the patient. Each patient will carry a credit-card shaped personal smart card containing his or her medical records. Cards will be funded by the government and provided to patients by registered hospitals. When read, the hospital staff will be able to access the patient’s medical records and could carry out the treatments on patient in case of emergency situations. Hospital staff will be responsible for updating the card with any relevant changes every time the patient visits the respective hospital. The usage of smart cards as the medium of holding patient’s medical record in a central database would prove beneficial for handling the emergency situations like accidents. Individual patients will possess their records in most convenient and secured form. In addition, implementing such a system will effectively begin converting all current paper based medical records into electronic format, serving as a key intermediate step towards transitioning into fully nationalized electronic medical records which can be used during emergencies.
