EHR (Electronic Health Record) is a digital record of a patient’s medical history, including diagnoses, medications, allergies, lab results, and other relevant information.

Smart cards are credit-card sized plastic cards that contain an embedded microchip that can store and transmit data. Smart cards can be used to securely access and store medical information, including EHRs.

In the context of healthcare, smart cards are sometimes used as a means of authentication and access control to EHR systems. For example, a patient might use a smart card to authenticate themselves and gain access to their EHR, or a healthcare provider might use a smart card to access a patient’s EHR in order to provide care. By using a smart card to access EHRs, healthcare organizations can help ensure the privacy and security of patient information.
