Siemens Medical Solutions has launched its CardOS Health 2.0 Patient Health Card Solution, a portable storage and communication device that provides patient identification, electronic retrieval, storage and display of medical and demographic data, and communication functions for healthcare information.

About the size of a credit card, Siemens contends that the Patient Health Cards are chip-embedded, photo identification cards that allow patients to be identified and authenticated during registration. According to Siemens, the card also provides instant access to key electronic medical record information, including insurance coverage and demographic information.

The solution combines smart card technology with a set of applications that can integrate with hospital information systems, says the Malvern, Pa.-based company.
