Digital health credentials for COVID-19

22nd July 2021 | 10:00am - 11:30am EST
How are you getting back to business while prioritizing health and safety for employees and customers?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by IBM

With the world still grappling with the pandemic, organizations everywhere are looking for ways to smartly reopen-and remain open. In some cases, this means identifying whether individuals have been tested or vaccinated for COVID-19.

Digital credentials are likely to play a role in reopening our communities, businesses, entertainment venues and more, and will likely help them remain open in the future. They provide a secure alternative to the paper vaccination cards or test results that we have relied on for years. With digital health pass technology, people will have the option to share their information—like their COVID-19 vaccine status or test results—in a way that is convenient, secure, and private.

Many organizations and industries can use digital credential technology. For example, conferences, stadiums, amusement parks, and concert venues looking to bring attendees and fans back could set the criteria for COVID-19 health credentials and entry requirements.

Join IBM Watson Health and a select group of industry peers to discuss the challenges of COVID-19 and the opportunities to help businesses thrive while prioritizing health and safety for employees and customers.

Discussion Topics

What are your top priorities for re-opening and staying open?
As parts of the country open up and mask requirements are lifted for fully vaccinated individuals, how do you plan to make customers and employees feel safe? Would it be better for public venues to verify COVID-19 health status through digital health passes?
With some concerts and venues planning to fully open this summer, are you leveraging any technologies to provide individuals with a voluntarily option to share their COVID-19 test results or vaccination status electronically?
