Paper Title
Introduction of an International Health Card in Healthcare Information Systems

Abstract
The "International Health Card" is a portable USB based smart health card to carry the entire medical records of a person. It can act as a medical passport while the person travels from one place to other. International Health Card has been designed to store and update patient medical records including personal profile, insurance details, family medical history, emergency details, immunization history, allergy history, full medical treatment history, and diagnosis details. An application with graphical user interface has been developed to store and manage the entire medical records of the patient on the card and in a server to avoid loss of data due to the damage of the card. Adequate privacy and security of the data is ensured by providing patient credentials and credentials are encrypted in the SQLite database to provide an adequate protection.
