Healthcare Council Invitation

Welcome to the Smart Card Alliance’s Healthcare Council site. We are excited to share our many activities with you, and hope you take advantage of our complimentary 90-day membership to the Council.

The mission of the Healthcare Council is to promote the adoption of smart cards in U.S. healthcare organizations and within the national health IT infrastructure and educate the healthcare market on why smart card technology is the appropriate solution for healthcare identity management applications.

As you enter the Healthcare Council page, we encourage you to explore the extensive applications and solutions for smart cards within the healthcare industry that enable advancements in patient identity, insurance verification, and seamless interoperability with health IT systems, billing and payment, and loyalty programs. Smart cards are widely accepted in many European health systems and have been critical for their positive impact on patient safety, quality of care, and reduction of cost associated with time inefficiencies.
