The future is going to witness a new document that an individual will virtually carry or be expected to produce is Digital Health Passport.

COVID has pushed nations to be more demanding from citizens or travellers, information about their Health, Pre-existing diseases, Lab Reports, insurance cover, Vaccine history etc. Similar to what you already have, a digital locker on cloud to secure your driving license details, Licence plate certificate nos.,Insurance papers etc, this Digital health passport is an additional docket that you will be required to show on demand to Airlines, Hotels, Concert Halls and Cinemas or ER services during an emergency. Many advanced nations have a record of what medical tests have been performed on their citizens but usage by other agencies are not prevalent today.

We expect these data to be as secure as possible and are available with only Govt departments, yet we do not know how they can be extracted with sophisticated software tools. You may be surprised to receive marketing mailers reminding your next date for Doctor’s appointment, reminder about health insurance premium or about a new policy or the validity of vaccine dose taken and a parking or speeding ticket.

DHP will invoke a new era of citizens’ surveillance and may be linked to an already available Citizen Registry – like SSN or Aadhar ( India).
