Westover Medical, a chain of primary healthcare clinics based in the United Kingdom, is launching an electronic card that patients can use to access their medical history.
Members of Westover can access their personal data by connecting the card to any computer and going through the provider’s secure website. Records will be password protected, and no data will be saved locally on the computer through which they are accessed, which the company says will help ensure patient confidentiality.
Westover is the first private healthcare provider in the UK to offer the e-card to its customers.
