Schneller Impfen dank Digitalisierung?

“Am Ende dieses Tages habe ich eine beachtliche Spur sensibler Daten hinterlassen. Ich bin stolzer Besitzer eines Benutzerkontos bei Doctolib geworden, habe dort zahlreiche Fotos von Dokumenten in meinem persönlichen Bereich erhalten, die ich in Papierform mit nach Hause bekommen habe und bin um einen Stempel in Impfausweis und der Impfkarte reicher. Wurde ich gefragt, ob ich eine digitale Version der Unterlagen überhaupt erhalten möchte: leider nicht. Hat die digitale Variante Zeitersparnis mit sich gebracht? Nein, stattdessen mussten meine Unterlagen zusätzlich vor Ort fotografiert werden. Hat die Ärzt:in etwas von dieser Form der Digitalisierung gehabt, damit die eigentliche Impfung schneller von statten gehen kann: nein, denn auch sie unterschreibt und stempelt in meinen althergebrachten Impfausweis.”
