Icon B3S

verinice. as well as verinice.PRO and the add-on module Zusatzmodul B3S Krankenhaus are qualified for funding from the Hospital Future Fund (KHZF). SerNet thus offers clinics and hospitals that have to improve their IT security and introduce information security management by the deadline of 01.01.2022 a comprehensive solution that meets their needs and is also eligible for funding. The corresponding proof of suitability for eligible service providers is held by SerNet.

The ISMS tool verinice or verinice.PRO is already in use as a reliable solution in the healthcare sector (e.g. Universitätsklinikum Halle, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin). The verinice.TEAM has also integrated the "Industry-Specific Security Standard for Healthcare in Hospitals" (B3S Krankenhaus), which is published by the German Hospital Association. The combination of verinice and the industry standard supports hospitals in meeting the requirements of the Patientendaten-Schutz-Gesetz (PDSG). According to this, by 01.01.2022, clinics and hospitals that are not classified as KRITIS (>30,000 full inpatient cases) are also "obliged to take appropriate organisational and technical precautions in accordance with the state of the art to prevent disruptions to the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their IT systems in order to ensure the functionality of the respective hospital and the security of the processed patient information." 

In accordance with the Krankenhauszukunftsgesetz für die Digitalisierung von Krankenhäusern 

funding can be applied for for the procurement and operation of verinice or verinice.PRO as well as the verinice module B3S Hospital since 1.1.2021. The responsible colleagues from the SerNet sales team have also obtained the necessary certificate in accordance with the Hospital Structure Fund Ordinance (KHSFV). SerNet is thus an authorised service provider. 

Some verinice.PARTNERS can also already show the "KHZG certificate" and offer comprehensive advice on the topics of: Improving IT security, ISMS for hospitals in general or specifically with the B3S and the funding from the KHZF. You can identify the relevant partners via our Partner-Locator.
