German health insurance funds to offer insured e-healthcare cards

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am 1 Comment

German health insurance funds to offer insured e-healthcare cards: "Munich-based technology provider Giesecke & Devrient will provide German health insurance fund Kaufmännische Krankenkasse and 28 corporate health insurance funds with 10 million electronic healthcare cards.

Giesecke & Devrient will dispatch the new insurance cards to the insured with a rollout scheduled to start in January 2009.

The delivery scope includes optical and electronic personalization of the smart cards with individual data relating to the insured persons and their insurers.

The electronic health insurance card will initially store the policyholder's basic data, such as their name, address, date of birth and health insurance fund, along with details of insurance coverage and the person's status regarding supplementary charges.

The new smart card will first be used for electronic prescriptions and is already designed to store a qualified electronic signature that legally and technically will replace the need for users to sign by hand."
