ECard - Austrias High-End eHealth Infrastructure
09Austria is a pioneer in the field of health telematics and its ECard infrastructure.  By introducing the Ecard in 2005, the administration of health services reached the digital age. RISE engineers contributed to its success by proficiency in architectural design, development of ECard readers (11,000 pcs.) and VPN concentrators. Future oriented design of hard- and software combined with novel architecture concepts enabled a flexible, yet easy to use system for Austria and beyond. Today’s ECard system processes between 350.000 and 500.000 patient transactions daily.  Moreover, the old “Krankenschein” (health treatment voucher) became obsolete – a form manually (handwritten!) issued and processed 40 million times a year.
