Wild Card's description 
Besides personal data, the electronic European Health Card saves all different kinds of medical data that were included in patient files before (anamnesis, diagnosis, therapy, etc., possibly even the genotype). The Health Card can be read in practices and hospitals in all EU member states and thus guarantees an optimal care of the traveling patient.
