What are the main advantages of using a smart health card?

Smart health cards help you to get access to your healthcare benefits conveniently, protect your privacy and security and help control costs of providing healthcare by reducing administration and fraud:

- When you need to use your healthcare benefits, your e-health card identifies you accurately and replaces form filling with a more automated process.

- Your prescriptions can be stored right on the card, so if you need a refill it is with you all the time.

- PIN entry, healthcare professional cards and online access security all help to protect your privacy and healthcare information.

- Overall healthcare costs are reduced by more effective administration, reduction of errors and reimbursement delays and reduction of fraudulent use of healthcare benefits.
