Germany's national healthcare system adopts Matrix for communication
We're incredibly excited to officially announce that the national agency for the digitalisation of the healthcare system in Germany has selected Matrix as the open standard on which to base all its interoperable instant messaging standard - the TI-Messenger. TL;DR. With the TI-Messenger, gematik is creating a nationwide decentralised private communication network - based on Matrix - to support potentially more than 150,000 healthcare organisations within Germany's national healthcare system. Initially every healthcare provider with an HBA will be able to choose their own TI-Messenger provider. The healthcare industry will be able to build a wide range of apps based on TI-Messenger specifications knowing that, being built on Matrix, all those apps will interoperate. Healthcare professionals will be able to choose a TI-Messenger provider, who will be hosting their personal accounts and provide the messenger-client. Healthcare organisations will choose a TI-Messenger provider to build the dedicated homeserver infrastructure, provide the client and ongoing support. Germany's healthcare system standardising on Matrix takes this to entirely the next level - and we can't wait to see the rest of Europe converge on Matrix for healthcare!
