Electronic Patient Record (ePA)

The digital storage location for your health data

Do you always know exactly what medications you are taking, what pre-existing conditions you have, what your blood values are or exactly how previous treatments went? Much of this information about your health is kept in the files of our doctors' offices. If we then go to another doctor, important information is not available and examinations have to be repeated. But it is much simpler. As an insured person of BKK EWE, you have the option of using the electronic patient file (ePA), which is free of charge for you, since January 1, 2021. Unnecessary visits to the doctor are now a thing of the past.

What is the ePA?

The ePA is the personal digital repository for your health data. Like a safe for which only you have the key and can decide what information you want to put in it and with whom you want to share it. If, for example, a doctor needs your findings or documents for his examination, he first needs the appropriate key, i.e. an explicit release from you.

Data that can be stored by you in the ePA and shared with providers as needed includes:

  • Diagnoses & Findings
  • X-rays
  • Medication Plans
  • Therapy measures
  • Patient letters
  • Emergency records
  • Vaccination card
  • Dental Bonus Booklet
  • Maternity log

The ePA can be used as an app. You can download the ePA under the name "ePA der BKK EWE" from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. If you want to use a desktop version, you can download it at the link https://epaclient.de download.

What the ePA can do

The ePA makes it easier for you to manage your health data. On a voluntary basis, you can manage them securely throughout your life. You always keep an overview and thus also have your medication plan quickly at hand. By avoiding duplicate examinations, you save time and unnecessary trips. And it also reduces the workload on doctors' offices and hospitals. In addition to your doctors' data, you can also store your own data, such as a diary of blood glucose measurements.
