secunet konnektor receives approval for the next expansion stage of the electronic patient record

secunet receives approval for product type version 5 (PTV5) of the secunet konnektor in the German telematics infrastructure and thus supports the next expansion stage of the electronic patient record on a broad scale.

Together with its partner eHealth Experts, secunet provides product type version 5 in time for the telematics infrastructure. In addition to some optimisations, the upgrade enables in particular the implementation of the refined authorisation concept of the German electronic patient record (ePA), also called ePA 2.0.

In future, the insured person will have the possibility to determine more precisely which data can be viewed by which medical service providers. The ePA 2.0 also offers standardised document formats to digitally store the vaccination card, the maternity passport, the child examination booklet or the dental bonus booklet in the patient record. In addition, the handling of the record has been improved: for example, its transfer to another health insurance has been optimised.

"With the new functions of the ePA 2.0, the added value for the insured person is becoming increasingly clear and the telematics infrastructure will continue to gain momentum," explains Markus Linnemann, Head of the eHealth Division at secunet.

Practices and hospitals that are connected to the telematics infrastructure with the secunet konnektor can install the upgrade in the coming weeks and months. Due to the increasing number of dependent systems, the rollout process will take place in several successive stages.

The ePA 2.0 upgrade is available for both designs of the secunet konnektor, the single-box connector and the data centre connector for large facilities.
