Virtual Hosts - Profession: Healthy Body, Healthy Life
   
Synopsis
 

Smart card applications will allow participating private hospitals and clinics to view a patient's health record electronically at public hospitals and clinics with the patient's consent. This facilitates continuity of care, as doctors in the private sector can access more information about a patient's health. The use of Smart ID Cards in Hong Kong's "eHealth System" also enables senior citizens to register and access their healthcare voucher accounts and claim the vouchers provided by the Government. This helps streamline procedures and is more convenient for senior citizens and healthcare providers. The efficient deployment of smart card technology has greatly improved the quality of care for patients in Hong Kong.
