Abstract: At this time in Germany, the e-health sector is especially focused on the new e-health card concept, which is currently in the test stage and should be established within the next years. This e-health card will totally change the current system, because this concept allows several new functions. Some of the possible functions are compulsory for the enrollees, while other functions are optional. Examples include electronic prescriptions, electronic patient records and the emergency data of the enrollee in case of an emergency. With these new innovations, the healthcare actors are confronted not only with several advantages but also disadvantages.
