When do I need a medical certificate?
Your employer may ask you for a medical certificate from your GP when you are on sick leave. For example, you may have to provide a medical certificate if you are off sick for more than 2 days in a row. The medical certificate should state the date you are likely to return to work.
This is an electronic sick leave and it is not submittable to the Department of Social Protection. If you need a medical certificate for this purpose you should visit your local GP in person.
Using any smartphone your employer can simply scan the QR code from the secured medical certificate.
The verification engine authenticates the hash on the blockchain and displays the original document that was generated by the doctor.
With QR code based certificates there's no need for your employer to contact an issuing authority to check its validity, making the validation process quick, efficient, as well as time and cost-effective.
