Emirates ID to store organ donor information

Emirates ID cards will soon be used to store your organ donor pledge as well as other health information. 

The system was unveiled at the Arab Health conference by the Ministry of Health and Prevention.

Once registered on the Hayat app, the data can be accessed by doctors across the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

Officials added that blockchain technology will be used to ensure patient data is protected.
