In addition to deliver printed Patientenausdrucke to a pharmacy patients also may use the official gematik application to select a pharmacy in order to assign their prescriptions to this pharmacy for dispensation. Once a prescription has been assigned to a pharmacy a message is sent to the pharmacy. The RED telematik API communications service allows pharmacies to poll for new messages and to fetch messages from central Fachdienst servers.

A request for all unread messages is sent using a GET request. The requesting pharmacy is identified by its SMC-B card that must be accessible in a card terminal.


In response the Fachdienst will return an XML data set.
