Roll-out of the Electronic Health Insurance Card: gematik Extends Contract with Arvato Systems

Roll-out of the Electronic Health Insurance Card:

• Arvato Systems is supporting the start of the electronic health insurance card (eGK) roll-out by providing software and infrastructure services
• Arvato Systems and gematik are thereby extending their partnership for an additional three years, through 2020

(Arvato Systems) Gütersloh, Germany – Arvato Systems will support gematik for an additional three years in rolling out, maintaining, and further developing the central telematics infrastructure (TI) for the healthcare industry. To this end, gematik is extending its existing contract with Arvato Systems through 2020.

The IT specialist Arvato Systems – a part of Bertelsmann Group - was commissioned in 2013 with setting up and operating the central telematics infra-structure (TI) for the trial run of the eHealth card. Arvato Systems successfully set up and implemented all of the components of the telematics infrastructure on schedule.

Now, Arvato Systems will continue to assume responsibility through 2020 for expanding and operating the central infrastructure, and will operate the components and products that this requires in its data centers based in Germany.

“Together with gematik, we successfully supported the trial run of insured persons’ master data management in connection with the eHealth card through the telematics infrastructure. The Germany-wide roll-out that is now beginning represents a further step towards digitization that will also continue to foment positive changes in the healthcare industry. We are proud to support this project, drawing upon our far-reaching experience in complex IT applications for the healthcare industry,” says Jan Wemmel, Head of the eHealth division at Arvato Systems.

Telematics (a combination of telecommunications and computer science) and the IT infrastructure used to this end represent a key component of digitizing the healthcare industry, and are necessary for the Germany-wide introduction of eHealth card applications. The telematics infrastructure networks a range of information systems used in the healthcare industry and provides for the exchange of information across sectors according to the latest specifications of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). Starting in mid 2018, introducing the telematics infrastructure will be obligatory for all service providers that provide care for members of the German statutory health insurance (GKV).
