Sagem Orga to begin e-health cards distribution

Thursday 7 May 2009

The new Generation 1 of the e-health card can be used online and has secure encryption functions. In addition to testing the functional suitability of the cards, gematik also conducted performance tests. The e-health card from Sagem Orga also passed the “interruption tests” necessary for approval. They ensure that the card can still be used normally following an interruption of the power supply.

Sagem Orga’s production facility at the German manufacturing site in Flintbek has implemented all required security measures and is ready to go. Sagem Orga supplies e-Health cards to German health insurances - the Techniker Krankenkasse, Innungskrankenkasse, Knappschaft and Landwirtschaftliche Krankenkasse. The gradual introduction of the e-health card in Germany will begin in summer in the North-Rhine pilot region.
