Meanwhile, the congress session on Health & e-service welcomed the presentation of ACS Sales Director, Mr. Gilbert Leung, on the role of smart card technology in healthcare systems. With the topic, “How do Smart Card Technologies leverage with worldwide e-Healthcare systems?” Gilbert’s presentation explored the current state of e-healthcare systems and discussed the advantages of applying smart card technology on existing and future e-healthcare infrastructures. He emphasized the importance of adapting smart card-based healthcare systems to conform to local requirements, citing the differences in smart card adaptation between countries like Taiwan, Austria, Germany and Hong Kong. Gilbert concluded his presentation by enumerating the benefits of adopting smart card-based e-health networks, which not only impact administrative areas by way of reduced costs, streamlined administration and improved communication networks and information sharing, but also provide healthcare recipients with increased protection from security breaches and fraudulent acts.

“We are glad to have participated in CARTES in Asia for the 2nd consecutive year,” expressed Gilbert. “As one of the pioneers in smart card technologies, we are honoured to have been able to share our expertise in smart card applications, particularly in emphasizing the need for healthcare systems to adopt the technology on a larger scale as we welcome the technological challenges of the future.”
