Does the smart health card contain all my medical information?

While a smart card, a card that contains a small microprocessor chip (like a mini-computer), typically does not contain all of one's medical information, it often stores basic information such as your birth date, gender, blood type, allergies, current prescriptions and an emergency contact. Having this basic information on the card could save your life in an emergency. In addition, its security features ensure that your information is protected.
