Smart cards in Health Information Services (HIS) are considered to have great potential to improve the delivery of healthcare services and reduce healthcare costs. On the other hand, HIS smart cards also introduce new challenges and limitations that require further analysis before a full-scale implementation. In this paper, smart cards in HIS are presented, along with current implementations and the benefits and the limitations that arise from their use.
