e-Health Card Terminal From SCM Microsystems Receives GEMATIK Certification

MKT+ Certification Provides Migration Path for Healthcare Providers to New

Electronic Health Card System in Germany

FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SCM Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCMM), a leading provider of solutions that open the Digital World, today announced that its eHealth100 health card terminal has received certification to be used as an MKT+ terminal (multi-functional terminal) from GEMATIK, the organization overseeing the implementation of the electronic health card program in Germany. The German e-Health card program is the largest electronic healthcare project in the world to date, with planned deployment of 82 million electronic health insurance cards and thousands of health provider cards over the next few years.

As MKT+ certified devices, SCM's eHealth100 health card terminals can be used by healthcare providers in Germany to read both currently existing health insurance cards (KVK) and soon to be deployed health care cards (eGK) of patients. Unlike the majority of card readers currently in use within Germany's healthcare system, MKT+ certified terminals ensure that doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals will be able to accept and read information from both old memory cards and new processor-based cards during the country's transition to a new e-health card system.

In addition to reading patient cards in both the old and new formats, SCM's eHealth100 terminal also can be used to read the health professional cards (HPC) of doctors, pharmacists, therapists and other healthcare providers, as well as Secure Module Cards (SMC) in ID-000 format for secure data communication.

Additionally, the terminal can be used as a SICCT terminal (Secure Interoperable Chip Card Terminal) that can be integrated into the local network of healthcare providers to ensure secure data communication within the German eHealth program's planned secure network, or "telematics" infrastructure. Hence, the eHealth100 addresses the card reader requirements of the German electronic health card program at every stage of its development -- now; in the transition period when electronic cards are deployed but the telematics platform is not yet operational; and in the future, when all parts of the system are complete and fully activated.

"The ability to support current and future technology in parallel is an important requirement to support the emerging electronic health card system in Germany," said Dietmar Wendling, Vice President Marketing of SCM Microsystems. "As a certified MKT+ device, the eHealth100 terminal provides a solid migration path for doctors and other providers who are looking to invest in one terminal that will address their interface needs both now and in the future. SCM Microsystems has once again demonstrated its leading role in the development of innovative smart card readers and terminals."
