As COVID-19 vaccine efforts continue, economies look to reopen businesses and events and accept international travelers. Gartner’s Global Business Implications for Vaccine Passports webinar briefs executive leaders on the digital vaccine credential landscape and what it means for the organization.
Executive leaders focused on enterprise strategic planning and execution, and reopening businesses and borders, must embrace the vision of the public and private sectors working together to create a single, standardized vaccine verification system framework. This structured solution should be similar in concept to the traditional passport data exchange that border agents, airlines, hotels, educators and others trust to be authentic and true. However, it must be based on globally accepted and adopted interoperability standards if we are to restore regional economies and the global travel and tourism industry, while ensuring sensitive personal data remains private and secure.
In the complimentary webinar associated with this presentation, a panel of Gartner experts discusses current initiatives to institute global vaccine certification standards using the discussion roadmap in Figure 1.
Panelists in the global vaccine certification standards webinar answer questions about what the global certification standards mean for organizations, and whether vaccine certificates or passes will be carried by individuals in the near future. They answer clients’ frequently asked questions on a variety of issues, including:
What is the relationship between a digital vaccine certificate and a health pass?
What is the current global landscape for health passes and their usage?
What are the use cases for vaccine certificates and health passes?
What is the state of health pass and so called “health passport” technology?
What are some of the digital vaccine certification initiatives already underway?
This presentation is based on the panel discussion in the global business implications for vaccine certificates webinar presented live 4 June 2021.
