Telematics infrastructure

The aim of creating the Telematics Infrastructure (TI), a digital platform for data exchange, is to connect all healthcare stakeholders for faster, safer and easier exchange of patient-related and treatment-relevant medical information.

Due to the lack of available certified technical equipment, the binding deadline for linking providers to TI set in the E-Health Act in 2015 was postponed to 31 December 2018. The first application of the step-by-step implementation of TI is Insured Master Data Management (VSDM), i. H. the automatic online examination of the master data provided on the health card.

The reimbursement consists of a starter fee and a quarterly reimbursement amount. More detailed information can be found in the financing agreement:
