German minister guarantees data protection for health card

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

German health minister Ulla Schmidt has refuted claims by the federal association of statutory health insurance physicians (KBV) that the planned electronic health card could be abused for the misappropriation of data. She said that it was both immoral and irresponsible of the KBV to spread fears in this way, as only the patient would have the power to authorise access to the data.
