IT-security plays a very important role in the public health sector, because we are dealing with highly sensitive data of doctors and their patients.
The introduction of the electronic health-card and the process of connecting all participants of the public health sector open new opportunities for the realisation of work-processes without media transfer and for the development of new online-services for the insured, doctors and health insurance agencies. Based on the new telematics-infrastructure, patients’ data can be exchanged electronically, processes can be quickened, and personalised information services can be created. This saves costs and, at the same time, provides higher quality in patient care. The realisation of this complies with high legal requirements for data protection, auditing acceptability, and reliability of the technology.
secunet is a project-partner for the introduction of the electronic health-card and provides its “secunet konnektor powered by SINA” which serves as an important link between the service-provider and the telematics-infrastructure and as such secures all connections via the Internet and, in this process, protects the network of the medical service-providers and the transfer of insurance-data from attacks.

We combine excellent know-how and knowledge of the legal framework with our expertise in IT security and planning reliability. secunet supports you in considering minimum legal requirements, in complying with standards and in creating sustainable and user-optimised solutions.
