The program has several components that all work together to save time for the patient, reduce costly errors for the hospital or physician, and enhance the overall experience.
Patient data includes basic demographic data, insurance information, emergency information, allergies, medical conditions, and recent prescriptions. Information is uploaded by patients through the hospital's web site and securely encrypted onto a Smart card.
When patients come to the hospital, they present the Smart card. The Smart card information, which can be updated, is then accessed by a hospital's admissions unit and matched to the hospital's data management software.
Kiosks at the hospital also allow a patient to pre-register using data stored on the Smart card to populate standardized patient forms. Additionally, ambulances and EMT's will have portable readers that can view the patient's Smart card data in emergency situations, providing richer and more accurate information
