GERMAN MEDICAL AWARD 2019 DÜSSELDORF
The German Medical Award is the leading award for medicine and management in Germany. The German Medical Award honors clinics, physicians and scientists for their outstanding and progressive patient care. The award has earned a high reputation among professionals in medicine, research and medicine economy, and is considered an important price for innovation, transparency and quality in medicine. The E-Health Institute was nominated through 130 applicants for the category Medical Digital Award. The doctor’s and patient’s platform E-Health App will be available to practice physicians who want to integrate telemedicine into their ambulatory work. The colleagues can now also look for their patients form a home office, and the patients can now contact their family doctor or specialist also if they are abroad. We look back on two unforgettable days in Düsseldorf. For me it was a special experience to come back to this part of Germany, where I worked once many years ago in the Ruhrlandklinik. We would like to thank the organizers of the German Medical Award for this great experience, especially Mrs. Yvonne Esser, who made possible our participation.
