The main goal of the electronic patient record is to create a highly secure, digital application for each insured patient, containing all of the necessary data for medical treatment. The record can then be made available to healthcare professionals at the patient’s request.
The electronic patient record (ePA 2.0) will be introduced into the private health insurance sector on 1 January 2022. From this point on, the electronic patient record, which has already been introduced into the statutory health insurance system, will be equipped with significantly more wide-ranging functions, such as the digital vaccination certificate, which will then be saved in the electronic patient record.
