Global SMART Health Cards Forum brings together government and industry leaders to present nation-wide framework for vaccination verification
With complex and evolving requirements for verifying vaccines and lab tests around the world, it’s important that the issuers of SMART Health Cards are well understood and trusted by verifiers. As a basis of trust, VCI’s Issuer Directory and the CommonTrust Network include clinical and government organizations responsible for health data management. We applaud the network and platform vendors who have built infrastructure for hundreds of clinical and government organizations to make SMART Health Cards available to hundreds of millions of individuals. Please read our post on “VCI Directory: Issuer Types” for more information.
VCI, a broad coalition of leading healthcare and technology organizations, continues to grow and is on track to publish freely available, openly licensed implementation guides for vaccination credentials in April, with availability to consumers to begin in May. These specifications establish an equitable, privacy-preserving approach to sharing verifiable clinical data in digital and paper form. If widely adopted, this approach enables individuals to show proof of vaccination to safely return to school, work, travel, and public events with organizations that adopt these specifications.
