LifeMed Card Inc. announced that it has installed its new smart card-based patient access system called “LifeMed” at The Memorial Hospital in North Conway, N.H.
LifeMed has been developed for hospitals identify patients and help manage them through the admissions process. Patients also have the ability to view and contribute to their overall medical records.
LifeMed smart cards will be issued and utilized during patient registration at The Memorial Hospital, as well as its three ancillary facilities. Each patient at Memorial will be issued a branded The Memorial Hospital smart card.
Total issuance is expected to be beyond 30,000 cards. The smart card will store patient demographic, insurance and medical information, allowing pre-registration and automated admission into the hospital. All information contained on the smart card is protected by security encryption algorithms, making the data virtually impossible to steal.
