What is the HPKI card authenticated by the Japan Medical Association Electronic Authentication Center?

Medical Practitioner’s Qualification Card

The Japan Medical Association Electronic Authentication Center is recognized as an “HPKI Certification Authority” that can issue HPKI cards, which meet the standards set by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and will be important in the future of IT medicine.
The Medical Qualification Card can be used not only as proof by presentation, but also as electronic proof that the holder is a physician in the field of IT using an IC card reader.
