The DKTIG

The German Hospital Directory is a website of the German Hospital TrustCenter and Information Processing GmbH (DKTIG / Deutsche Krankenhaus TrustCenter und Informationsverarbeitung GmbH).


The DKTIG is supported by the German Hospital Federation and the federal state hospital organizations. It supports hospitals in meeting security requirements and performs the trust center function in data transfer in accordance with § 301 SGB V.

As the issuer of the SMC-B hospital, the institutional ID card used by hospitals for authentication against the telematics infrastructure, the DKTIG sees itself as an active shaper of digitization in the health care system. In addition, the DKTIG supervises various benchmarking and calculation projects of the hospitals.
