Digital support for psychotherapeutic treatment

The relationship between patient and therapist is decisive for the success of therapy. In addition to professional expertise, trust is the cornerstone of all psychotherapeutic treatment. This trust calls for the confidential handling of diagnostic and personal data and presents the entire healthcare industry with new challenges in the digitalization of healthcare. The secure storage and administration of data as well as strictly limited and certified access by authorized persons or institutions must be guaranteed.
Bundesdruckerei offers products that comply with the law, including the GDPR, enabling you to live up to your patients’ trust and the requirements of the legislator.

Are you already connected to the telematics infrastructure? As service providers, psychotherapists are also obliged to connect to the TI.

In addition to the initial consultation, many other factors are relevant for a correct diagnosis in psychotherapy, such as current medication or earlier diagnoses. The telematics infrastructure (TI) has been set up for the healthcare industry in order to provide this overview of health in a fast and efficient manner. The telematics infrastructure links all stakeholders in the healthcare industry – doctors and dentists , hospitals , statutory health insurance companies, psychotherapists and pharmacies  – and enables the fast and easy delivery of all medical information relevant to the psychotherapeutic treatment of patients. With the Act for Secure Digital Communication and Applications in Healthcare (eHealth Act), the legislator decided to introduce a secure digital infrastructure for the healthcare system. Since 2019, all service providers have been obliged to connect to the telematics infrastructure. This requires a connector and a card terminal, which can be used together with the SMC-B card for medical practices and the electronic health professional card (eHPC) to enable a legally binding signature and authentication of your practice or of the therapist within the telematics infrastructure. D-TRUST GmbH – a subsidiary of Bundesdruckerei – is a qualified trust service provider and approved producer of the SMC-B card for medical practices and the health professional card (eHPC).

Digital confidentiality: How to secure and encrypt your health data in line with the GDPR

As a practicing psychotherapist, you are aware of the importance of data protection. To ensure that unauthorized persons cannot access your patient data at any time, the data must be encrypted with a high level of security. Another equally relevant aspect is certified access authorization for individuals that allows them to manage the data of your medical practice in line with the GDPR. With the digitalization of the healthcare industry, online storage and high-security cloud systems are becoming increasingly relevant for psychotherapists because these services encrypt data directly on your computer while storage in the cloud protects the data against loss and unauthorized access. Unlike physical storage on your premises, you can now minimize the risk of your data being lost or stolen. Bundesdruckerei offers psychotherapists the following e-health products that enable efficient and secure infrastructure, access control and data storage in their practice.
