How we are supporting the digital transformation of pharmacies

The ePrescription is the latest digital application that is changing the way pharmacies do business. More and more processes are being digitized, for example, for auditable documentation or automated merchandise management. This offers new opportunities because many of these tasks can be handled faster, more cost-efficiently and with a lower error rate in the future. In order to make sustainable use of these opportunities, the risks of digitalization must be eliminated. Bundesdruckerei supports pharmacies with legally compliant products during the conversion to digitized processes.

Connect your pharmacy to the Telematics Infrastructure (TI) with SMC-B

Since September 2019, Bundesdruckerei has also been supplying the SMC-B for medical practices/institutions to pharmacies. The SMC-B enables a secure connection to the telematics infrastructure (TI). In this way, digital patient data can be transmitted in a secure manner and pharmacies can access the required insurance data quickly, conveniently and in a legally compliant manner and then integrate this data into their systems. Pharmacies can acquire the cards from their respective federal-state chambers.

eHPC for pharmacists

The electronic health professional card (eHPC) offers pharmacists a personal, secure and legally compliant connection to the telematics infrastructure. The eHPC allows pharmacists to login personally to the relevant IT systems. Pharmacists can create a personal, electronic signature, send and receive confidential data in encrypted form and access patient data stored on the electronic health card (eHC). This increases data security and data protection in pharmacies. As with the SMC-B, applications for an eHPC must be submitted to the respective federal-state chamber or directly to Bundesdruckerei, depending on the federal state.

Secure IT solutions for pharmacies

Pharmacies are now also faced with the challenge of ensuring secure and confidential handling of electronic patient data. This data is stored, retrieved and sometimes also transmitted. IT security and data protection must always be the top priority when handling this sensitive information. The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has drawn up standards for this purpose. As a government-owned company, Bundesdruckerei develops solutions and products for secure identities and secure data ‘Made in Germany’.  Commercial and pharmaceutical documents, such as delivery notes, invoices, orders and production documentation, are securely archived on Bundesdruckerei's servers. This allows you to store relevant data in an auditable manner and protected from unauthorized access.
