German Health Card

This year, members of public health insurance in Germany can expect to receive a health smartcard. The smartcard – called the eGK – is fundamentally used for authentication, authorization and secure data storage. Its first application is planned to include prescription information. Its use is voluntary by patients and has potential to reduce administrative effort and expense.
