Why EU Need Green Health Code?

Let's start by understanding what QR is？
As the name implies, a QR code is the fastest way to access information stored in a QR code. It contains seven different elements that make up its square and can store various types of information
How is the Green Health Code being utilized in China?
Although the QR code was invented in Japan, the real champion is of course China. This country of over 1.3 billion people needed a way to use simple and effective technology to streamline daily operations. QR codes are used in China in a variety of ways - from payments to advertising - but their recent use to fight coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has had a major impact on the healthcare industry.
What is Coronavirus?
The novel coronavirus COVID-19 is an infectious disease that is primarily a syndrome virus caused by severe acute respiratory illness. People can be infected by breathing, droplets, and coughing. Therefore, the World Health Organization requires us to keep a distance of more than 1 meter from the patient.

Going Paperless: UAE Begins Digital Validation of 2019 Coronavirus Disease Medical Records
The largest airline in the United Arab Emirates is implementing paperless validation of documents related to the United Arab Emirates 2019 Coronavirus Disease PCR test and vaccinations.
Emirates Airline announced that it is working with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to digitally validate travelers' data to make the process more secure and efficient.
Benefits of using health QR codes
QR codes help ensure the safety of customers and employees
QR codes act as proximity detectors
During the COVID-19 outbreak, the Chinese government researched and invented a mobile app to start this. The app helps people check if they are at risk for COVID-19 infection by filling out a questionnaire about their health. Once completed, the app automatically assigns the user a health code color of their own, showing their health status
The QR codes come in three colors: green for the general public, yellow for people returning from an infected area, and red for patients, suspected cases or people under medical observation. Most public places have checkpoints where the QR code and the person's body temperature can be checked. Green-coded people are allowed to enter public places, while yellow and red-coded people are advised to stay in public places.
Improving hospital efficiency
While the use of color-based QR codes is considered controversial, it has had the greatest impact on hospitals. Before implementing health QR codes, patients must go through a series of questions asked by their physicians, which often takes several minutes to complete. In addition, some patients have reportedly lied about whether they traveled to an area affected by a coronavirus outbreak just to obtain needed services. By using QR codes to confirm the truth about health status, those with a green code can freely use the hospital while saving medical staff a great deal of paperwork and time.
Improving the cleanliness of everyday items
Scientists studying the coronavirus soon discovered that the virus could infect people through everyday objects. The study showed that the virus was still most active in cardboard for 24 hours and in plastic and stainless steel for up to three days. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it's possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, The mouth, the nose will touch but, eventually, there is a possibility to touch their eyes.
Contactless interaction with QR codes
With the health code, we can keep an eye on our health, and when we need to be tested on necessary occasions, we can directly take out our health code and place it under the health code scanning device, effectively preventing the infection crisis brought by secondary contact。
Depending on the size of the QR code, you only need a distance of at least 25 cm (10 inches) to scan the QR code. In contrast, NFC (Near Field Communication) devices can only interact if they are no more than 4 cm (1 ½ inches) away from each other.
Restaurants have begun using health codes to enable staff movement control
To help slow the spread of the coronavirus on surfaces, restaurants are also setting up payment, ordering, and scanning devices.
You can now implement the QR code idea in your hospital or clinic
QR codes are not only cost effective, but they are also quick to implement. In addition, after COVID-19, there is the added benefit of keeping everyone clean through contactless interaction. Here are just a few examples of QR codes you can create for your healthcare organization
Eliminate pen and paper registration for patients
Using QR code scanning for patient check-in is an absolute zero-cost project. You can simply place a device with QR code recognition at the entrance. Or you can simply collect information in the waiting room through a temperature recognition machine with a questionnaire.
Provide contactless information
Hospitals and clinics are strong proponents of sharing information through brochures, flyers and posters. You see them on counters, on waiting room tables, and even everywhere in the doctor's office. Not only do they waste resources, but they are rarely replaced or cleaned. What if there was a way to reduce paper waste and still share information without touching it?
