During the ongoing "10.000er-Tests" for the electronic health card in Germany, more than 80 percent of all participating hospitals, doctors' offices and pharmacies in the test regions are using the CardOS HealthCare Connector from Siemens Healthcare.
The overall "connector" system typically consists of two components: the application connector and the network connector. The application connector controls electronic processes in healthcare with the use of electronic health cards, healthcare professional cards, and card terminals in doctors' offices, pharmacies, and clinics. The network connector handles and monitors the complete data exchange process with the telematic infrastructure. The current test phase analyzes the capability of the health card to update the health insurance data of patients in real time prior to reading the data into the computer system of a doctor's office.
