LifeNexus has plans during the HIMSS11 conference to introduce a new electronic health card designed to maintain an individual’s personal health record and provide payment card options all on the same card, according to HealthcareITNews.com.
The company will give out 1,000 of these cards to attendees at the show, embedded with the company’s Individually Controller Health Information Platform (iChip) technology, which uses mobile server technology that is both encrypted and password-protected. Also on the card is a digital credential that assures the protection of identity and privacy, and thereby reduces fraud.
The HIPAA-compliant card stores comprehensive health information for individuals and their family members, including demographic data, emergency contacts, and insurance information along with medical records, which include medical history, immunizations, allergies and prescriptions.
LifeNexus CEO Christopher Maus said the card will make vital information readily available to health care providers in emergency situations, enabling faster admission and improved care.
