Isn’t this how Patients and Carers should be accessing Electronic Health Records?



Google has been trialling a neat way to securely tie the browser on a PC and your Smartphone using QR Codes to enable more secure password entry processes. The process is this simple:

> Go to https://accounts.google.com/sesame with any PC

> Scan the QR Code you’ll see with your QR Code reading mobile

> You’ll see a Google.com URL pop up, click this and sign in using your Google name and Password

> The screen on the PC automatically logs into your Google Account

The process helps Google Account holders avoid several glaring security issues and I think it would be a very effective way of securing healthcare records. Imagine the money saved by a care provider if it used this instead of expensive smart card deployments:

I always thought this is why Apple hasn’t jumped into the NFC space despite the wide enthusiasm for this technology amongst other mobile device maker brands.

After seeing the simplicity and ease with which all this works (on any basic in market smartphone) I wouldn’t be surprised if those responsible for the bulky/expensive Google Wallet terminals aren’t having a few second thoughts…
