Smart cards, with their embedded electronic chip, can be loaded with applications that store important personal information. This can be anything from an electronic version of the photograph displayed on the card, through to important information such as health records and insurance details. In circumstances where more information might be needed to identify or correctly respond to an individual, a smart card’s chip can be securely scanned to show vital information such as driving endorsements, criminal records or dependents. In a health-related scenario a card could contain insurance information as well as details of allergies, blood type and medication details or even details of a next-of-kin.
