Coalitions like the VCI are crucial for sharable vaccine credentials as we safeguard the health and safety of employees and patrons.
SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) March 29, 2021
ShareMy.Health, a leading healthcare cloud platform, today announced it has joined the Vaccine Credential Initiative (VCI), a group bringing together leading health and technology organizations to develop a trustworthy, traceable, verifiable, and universally recognized digital record of vaccination status, based on open, interoperable standards. By joining the VCI group, ShareMy.Health unites with a coalition of more than 200 members that includes Microsoft, Oracle and Salesforce.
Individuals inoculated for COVID-19 need convenient access to and control of their immunization records to safely return to work, school, events, and travel. The VCI coalition provides individuals with access to a trustworthy and verifiable copy of their vaccination records in digital or paper form.
“ShareMy.Health is proud to contribute to the Vaccination Credential Initiative and help organizations integrate with the offerings of other VCI members so we can improve the vaccination management lifecycle and safely return to public life as soon as possible,” said Galen Murdock, founder and CEO of ShareMy.Health. “COVID-19 is something we will likely not completely eradicate but instead will learn to live with. As such, coalitions like the VCI are crucial for sharable vaccine credentials as we safeguard the health and safety of employees and patrons.”
To achieve this purpose, VCI members “commit to implementing, testing, and refining the SMART Health Cards Framework [which improves the authenticity, security and privacy of patient information] within their sphere of influence,” according to its website. “VCI organizations also commit to providing vaccination records directly to citizens if such records are in their stewardship. They may also be called upon to assist in other ways as necessary to ensure the success of the initiative.”
ShareMy.Health gives individuals and organizations an increased level of safety and comfort as they return to face-to-face experiences. The HIPAA compliant platform and Digital Health Passport enhances and extends government vaccination initiatives by allowing verification and certification of COVID-19 test results, confidential and encrypted QR codes, and population health analytics.
