Overview Many regional projects are underway, generally a high level of electronic communication in healthcare No nationally harmonised center of gravity for standards and certification SDOs (DIN, HL7, IHE,...) use www.interoperabilitaetsforum.de as the platform to develop and adapt specifications (4 meetings per year, free meals)www.interoperabilitaetsforum.de National health insurance card has been rolled out (http://www.gematik.de/) including a secure electronic patient ID and cryptographic functions, and a photo of the patient – No central services at the moment – Projects scheduled for field trial 2014/2015: online patient demographics, digital signature for healthcare providers, central services, card terminals, secure access components ("connector") – additional projects to follow: patient summary, secure point-to-point communication for providers, services for electronic case records (e.g. provider registry)
Status in Germany GEMATIK (http://www.gematik.de/) is authority for specification and approval of cards and card terminals – approval requirements are specified by gematik: testing and certification (by BSI and others) – approval and certification will further extend as the health card projects evolve, see above – for details see: http://gematik.de/cms/de/zulassung/zulassungstart.jsphttp://gematik.de/cms/de/zulassung/zulassungstart.jsp Many decision makers are involved in the German healthcare telematics infrastructure (TI) project – Shareholders of gematik: healthcare payor and provider organizations – Federal Ministry of Health, legal framework – Payors: Social security / insurance providers issue cards for insured persons – Hospitals / resident doctors / other healthcare providers: card-based ID and demographics used in reimbursement – Through its membership in EHTEL/ELO and HL7, gematik corresponds with ANTILOPE
