This summer, Bochum residents will have the opportunity to test the electronic health card. The card is designed to facilitate the exchange of medical information between doctors and patients. The trial period is designed to verify the usability and security of the card.
With the electronic health card, medical data from different doctors and medical facilities can be stored centrally and digitally. This should allow for faster exchange of information, which is especially beneficial in the event of an emergency. In addition, patients can view and manage their own data.
The test phase of the electronic health card is an important step toward digitized medicine and is intended to help improve patient care. The card will be rolled out nationwide in the future, but the Bochum launch will be a first step to facilitate adoption.
We have been waiting with anticipation for the test launch of the electronic health card in Bochum – it will be exciting to see how the card is received by residents and to what extent it will make everyday medical life easier.
The electronic health card – What is it??
The electronic health card (eGK) is a personalized card that insured persons must present to the statutory health insurance fund whenever they receive treatment. The eGK is a digital tool for managing medical data and is designed to enable easy handling of medical data. Patients will be able to use the card to manage their own data and documents and thus retain control over their health data.
Many physicians in Germany already have certified devices to store and retrieve patient data on the eGK. Bochum citizens will have the opportunity to test the eGK starting this summer and experience the benefits of this digital instrument.
The eGK will also simplify communication between different medical facilities and ensure that important information is available quickly and reliably. The goal of the eGK is to provide better and safer patient care while making it easier to handle medical data.
