What You Should Know:
– Lumedic launches a first-of-its-kind commercial technology to offer digital vaccine cards to patients receiving COVID-19 vaccinations at sites affiliated with Providence, one of the nation’s largest health systems. The technology includes a mobile app that gives patients the option to share vaccination verification status quickly and securely, when and how they want.
– Through the app, patients can request their digital vaccination be delivered securely to their mobile device and then choose to authorize sharing it with businesses of their choice. A simple green check mark alerts business that the individual has been vaccinated, with no transfer of any other personal health information. The technology is optional for patients and health care systems, and offers a secure alternative to paper cards.
– Lumedic Connect is free of charge for patients and for any health system storing patient COVID-19 vaccination records in their electronic health records (EHRs). By allowing patients to request their vaccination record, it preserves the privacy and autonomy of patient information, at the same time giving businesses, airlines, hotels and others a high-trust way to confirm authenticity of the information.
Current and future participating patients can download the Lumedic Connect mobile application free of charge from their preferred app store. EHR integration is available at no cost to healthcare providers who want to issue digital vaccine cards if requested by their patients, so long as they satisfy the governance requirements of the Lumedic Exchange.
