Is Progress Being Made? Telemedicine and Home Care in Germany

Congress Session

Date
April 10, 2019

Time
11:30 - 13:00

Location
_Stage B, Hall 2.2

Be it in order to solve medical staff shortages, ensuring that there is care in peripheral areas, or in order to gain access to global expertise, telemedicine is often called upon to act as the panacea that will resolve current and future care issues. How far has Germany come in establishing telemedical applications in diagnostics and treatment and in exchanging specialist knowledge? Are the necessary technical preconditions, the legal framework and organisational structures in place? Has a cultural shift taken place as a result of which digitalisation of the medical system is no longer regarded as a threat, but instead as support? Where digitalisation is concerned, are outpatient nursing institutions overtaking organisations such as hospitals, and what added value do they offer the patient? How can digitalisation help to make cooperation at the interfaces in the care process more professional? At this interactive session, together with experts representing the medical profession, nursing, hospitals and administrations, we intend to devote time to these questions and to others of a highly pressing nature.
