Adherence to therapy, what is termed "compliance", is a very important topic in Medicare. It has considerable effects not only in terms of enhancing quality of life for patients, but also in reducing the financial burden on the health care system. The individualized weekly medicament blister for patients (7x4 Box) from 7x4 Pharma increases the compliance and helps to keep the health expenditures as low as possible. A potential extension of the 7x4 Box could be a digital product memory which makes the imprinted data on the box electronically accessible in order to enable new innovative services which helps to increase the compliance. If we do not secure the data from an unauthorized access there is a possibility that third parties can read out the data unperceived and on a grand scale. In this paper we show how we can realize an authorized access -- individually or role-based -- on the data via identification by the new German electronic identity card.
