Electronic health record

The electronic health record (eGA) is a personal insurance document in which medical patient data is entered. The insured person has access to this document himself via the Internet and can determine the group of people who can view the document.

Patient medical data and findings are stored inthe electronic health record and are available to physicians, hospitals and health insurers after release. Physicians treating patients can transfer their findings to the electronic health record with the patient's permission.

The electronic health record is intended to speed up the retrieval of important patient records so that physicians can access the data promptly and regardless of location and use it for treatment or an intervention. It is intended to reduce the administrative burden on the insured, avoid duplication of treatment, simplify communication among the institutions involved, and eliminate the need for postal mailing of medical records and medical documents. A key aspect is communication between the primary care physician and the specialist, which until now has been done either by telephone or via the insured person.

In contrast to the electronic health record( EHR), the electronic health record gives the insured person an overview of costs, he or she can list all contacts, document his or her personal health history and be supported in scheduling appointments.
