In its 11th year, the Smart Card Alliance Government Conference will cover efforts around Personal Identity Verification programs, the new National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, trusted ID on mobile devices, and healthcare ID.
Jabs will be presenting the session “Smart Healthcare: Enhancing Privacy for Data-Sensitive Information,” which is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 29th, at 3:30 p.m. As part of the Implementation & Policy Issues Track, the presentation will examine case studies from international healthcare projects—focusing on technologies, applications, political drivers and results—while drawing analogies to the challenges of fraud, privacy and quality of healthcare in the United States.
