AM-V2: Secure and Efficient SMART Health Card Support
AM will provide information on obtaining a SMART Health Card at all vaccination locations when administering vaccine for COVID-19 or other diseases, with the goal of enabling digital access to vaccination records while protecting other sensitive medical information. The AM-V2 service aligns with VCI, which partners with local and state governments as well as the federal government, to make vaccine records accessible regardless of the state where an individual was vaccinated.
SMART Health Cards document healthcare records and clinical data and are available through organizations responsible for safeguarding protected health information: pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and state registries, among others. The cards can be obtained in person, mailed, downloaded, or may be connected to individual health records via an app that supports SMART Health Cards.
Because the AM-V2 service is platform agnostic, a SMART Health Card from any VCI-certified provider can be used to substantiate vaccination status.
