Health professionals can easily access a patient's electronic health records securely and efficiently by tapping their ID card on NFC-enabled mobile devices.

Täby, Sweden, Oslo, Norway (June 30, 2020) - Accessing Electronic Health Records (EHR) at hospitals and health care centers is possible through a native application installed on hospital owned and managed tablets/mobiles or even on the professionals' mobile phones. Nurses, home nurses and doctors need a free from contamination, hassle-free and efficient way of accessing patient information regardless of device and without depending on a physical smart card reader.

The new NFC app, developed by Scytáles, a Swedish global leader in Mobile Identification solutions, together with Commfides, a Norwegian Certification Authority, uses level 4 digital certificates to ensure secure authentication and safe handling of sensitive patient information.

By adopting the new NFC app, Health care systems and Hospitals will be able to assure a contactless approach that will protect Healthcare professionals and Frontline Administrators from contracting and spreading infection. Ultimately, the new solution provides faster diagnostics, better care and increases patients' access to the healthcare provider.

"The introduction of an NFC mobile ID as a complement to existing NFC smart cards will allow health professionals to access sensitive patient information 24/7 in the hospital and remotely when out on patient home visits while guaranteeing highest security and safeguarding the user. This will not only save time but also save lives", says, Kjell Olav Skogen, CEO of Commfides Norge AS.

"This is a solution that introduces additional administrative efficiency as well as safety measures reducing unnecessary exposure and health risks, especially during these COVID-19 circumstances. Scytáles is developing a native NFC Mobile ID App for mobile devices and tablets for remote accessing to health platforms. Scytáles and Commfides see an increasing need of these contactless solutions for health regions. Our enabled ready API is easily integrated with the major EHRs. This is our journey to offering an NFC-Factory to the health market together with our partners", states Konstantin Papaxanthis, CEO of Scytáles AB.
