Full-service package available for the new communication standard

Gütersloh, Germany – Arvato Systems, an operator of central telematics infrastructure (TI) and market leader in VPN access service, received level one authorization for kim+ today. The service enables different areas of the healthcare industry, from medical practices to hospitals, to continue to use their existing systems for secure communication. In so doing, Arvato Systems is supplying a new telematics service for the future of the healthcare industry. Clients can sign up for kim+ from Arvato Systems now.

kim+ offers both onsite service providers responsible for installations and providers of primary systems (for example, hospital information systems, medical practice management systems, or physicians information systems) optimal conditions for smooth installations and seamless operation for their customers.

 “All user groups, from medical practices to hospitals, will benefit from this service because they can continue to use the software they are most familiar with. They only need to add kim+ as a new application,” explains Jan Wemmel, Head of E-Health at Arvato Systems. “Communication in the medical sector is a first basic step moving us towards digital healthcare. It is all the more important that the person at their computer can send documents and e-mails conveniently and hassle-free via the kim+ service. This aspect of user-friendliness is precisely what the plus in kim+ stands for,” states Wemmel. User-friendliness and efficient use are due in great part to the close cooperation with partners and clients who contributed significantly to this by providing their feedback. The system will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
