The article gives an overview of chip card developments in the Netherlands. Figures on operational chip card schemes are broken down for different fields of application, including health care. In its turn the health care applications are divided into ‘administration & registration’, ‘service’ and ‘security’. Coordination activities on a national level are carried out by the National Chip card Forum (NCP). The NCP is active in creating the conditions for an open infrastructure for multiapplication chip cards.
