Smartcard for secure access to the Telematics Infrastructure
The ID card for medical practices and institutions (SMC-B card), the so-called Security Module Card, type B, offers secure access to the digital health network. Doctors, dentists, hospitals and pharmacies are obliged to participate in the Telematics Infrastructure (TI).
One card for many digital applications
This small card has a key role to play in the digital healthcare industry. Inserted into the card terminal and together with a secret PIN, the card confirms beyond a trace of doubt the identity of the respective practice or institution. In addition to other applications, the card enables both access to the electronic health card and e-mail encryption.
