It would appear that the introduction of chip-based eHealth card systems is not successful in a large number of countries around the world. Resistance comes not only from patients, but also from doctors, pharmacists, and insurance companies. There is not only resistance because of the expected high cost. In fact, it seems that the control of data and the risk of data misuse are the main reasons.
Yet why do more and more people publish their personal private data by choice in Web 2.0 applications like Facebook. Although misuse of data is well known people do this without hesitation. There is no resistance to do this. Nobody is obliged to do this and a lot of people do it.
is: Are there perhaps other paths for a successful implementation of
such systems? Another question is: Do we need a single solution in each
country. There is already inconsequence in the process of implementation.
There are many reasons mentioned that there is only one single system in
a country. Does this make sense? Why should there be different, non-compatible
systems in each country of a global world
We use for
example a large variety of online banking solutions. These software
solutions are interfaces to the global financial transaction system.
Different banks use different systems for authentification. This is not
a problem for the system. Credit, debit and other bank cards even still
use different data structures to store the data on the card. The card
readers respectively the systems behind know all these different data
