The Evolving Role of Digital Health Passes
The world is beginning to see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, but we now face a new set of challenges around the question: How will we safely reopen and stay open? Digital credentials are likely to play a role in the re-opening of our communities, businesses, entertainment venues and more, but there are questions about digital health passes and how they will be used.
Simply put, digital credentials can provide a secure alternative to the paper vaccination cards or test results that we have relied on for years. With digital health pass technology, people will have the option to share information – like their COVID-19 vaccine status or test results – in a way that is convenient, secure, and private. Developing a set of standards around privacy, equity and access can help build trust and ensure interoperability across solutions that will be key to a seamless experience for the individual.
Hear from the experts on how this passport puzzle is being put together to ensure a safe and reliable re-opening of our world. And learn more about how these technologies might evolve beyond the pandemic to different applications in healthcare.
