Siemens Healthineers expands digital healthcare platform

257

Siemens Healthineers presents new digital offerings on the Teamplay Digital Health Platform Connect healthcare platform at DMEA, the leading trade fair for digital healthcare in Europe. In addition to Siemens Healthineers, five new partners will offer digital services, so-called value-added services, via this open platform. The new services range from wound management to patient support and AI-based decision support to discharge management.

The range of value-added services on the platform will continue to grow in the coming months. Siemens Healthineers operates the digital healthcare platform in Germany together with IBM. The platform supports the digitalization of the healthcare sector and is intended to be the basis for the provision of a wide range of digital solutions in the German healthcare sector. “Our platform has a decisive advantage for service providers – it reduces the respective integration effort of digital services. This facilitates the realization of IT projects planned under the German “Krankenhauszukunftsgesetz” ( KHZG – Hospital Future Act). Service providers are thus future-proofed and can book innovative solutions as needed, which are also subsidized by state according to KHZG. In this way, we simplify the implementation of KHZG projects for hospitals,” says Dr. Christian Kaiser, Head of Digital Services Central Western Europe, Siemens Healthineers.

Siemens Healthineers continues to work closely with the Berlin-based company Flying Health to identify and obtain new value-added services. Flying Health has a large network of research institutions, start-ups, SMEs together with national and international healthcare companies. Currently, five new partner companies offer their digital services on the Teamplay Digital Health Platform Connect. The following new partner solutions are available to customers via the platform as well: imitoWound, Patient Journey App, ProCarement, RAMP and Recare.

Imito – die wund-app

With “imitoWound”, imito AG offers a clever app solution for interdisciplinary and standardized wound management – in the hospital and beyond. Patients’ wounds are simply photographed with mobile phones and measured automatically. Everyone in the team can quickly and objectively follow the wound history and therapy documentation using images and diagrams embedded on their mobile phone or in the KIS. For example, changes in the wound surface of pressure ulcers can be better documented and their therapy can be billed with health insurance companies.

Patient Journey App

Interactive Studios B.V. offers the patient journey app, a guidance app for advising before, during and after the inpatient stay. The patient receives the appropriate information according to his treatment from the service provider via the app at the right time. The service provider has the possibility to monitor all progress of the patient and thus receives important data. Constant data collection and analysis helps the service provider optimize patient care.

ProCarement

As a virtual cardiac clinic, ProCarement GmbH supports service providers, insurance companies and patients with its digital, integrated care concept. The CareCenter detects deviations and initiations of emergencies via a patient app, accompanying therapy and intervening at an early stage. The app supports the patient to behave faithfully to therapy, including a medication plan with memory, disease-specific learning units, recording of vital parameters (blood pressure, saturation, pulse, weight, etc.), a central document manager, and more. CareManagers are available to patients as contact persons in the ProCarement CareCenter, keeping a close eye on the well-being of patients and helping them get to the right level of care at the right time.

Ramp

“RAMP Software and Services” from Henisaja GmbH offers physicians an Evidence and AI-based decision support tool that strengthens their medical knowledge and allows them to treat every patient according to the current state of research. Doctors are particularly supported in the field of medication, cardiology, and the treatment of diabetes mellitus.

Recare

Recare Deutschland GmbH operates one of the leading digital platforms for the digital coordination of care capacities within the framework of hospital discharge management in Germany and currently connects more than 560 acute and rehabilitation clinics and more than 14,000 nursing homes and nursing services. The platform enables the coordination of care places in the areas of care transfer, hospital relocation, follow-up treatment as well as the associated organisation of ambulance transport and aids.
