Digital credentials allow organizations operating in any environment to verify an individual’s health status against established entry criteria while maintaining privacy.
Frost & Sullivan’s latest visual white paper, Digital Health Passports for COVID-19 and Beyond: How digital credentials are helping us safely and effectively reopen today and why they’re here to stay,Â analyzes the role played by health credentials in supporting a safe return to normal operations for organizations and governments.
It discusses interoperability, privacy and standards in designing these credentials, and the corresponding value that blockchain can bring to solving the security and access challenges facing markets.
“Digital health credentials are both a short-term solution and a long-term strategy to managing individual data within privacy limits to support ongoing engagement with consumers.
No one vendor solution will dominate this market, so building in interoperability is a requirement to make these solutions user-friendly,” observed Greg Caressi, Healthcare & Life Sciences Global Client Leader at Frost & Sullivan.
“Digital credentials built on blockchain technology can help individuals gain true access and control of their personal health information.
With blockchain, individuals are in control of their information, determining what they share, with whom and for what purpose.”
Meet consumer expectations for individual control over personal health information, determining what they share, with whom, and for what purpose.
