Intersector networking in medication management

Project summary

Initial situation: The intersector communication of the service providers for care in stationary living is still deficient. The exchange of medication data and patient information is frequently incomplete, delayed and exists in most cases on paper only. Apart from unused efficiency potentials in an economic sense, this also causes additional problems and risks for the treatment of the patients or tenants (clients).

The MediPlanOnline® is an online program for common intersector medication management between doctor, care service and pharmacy.

Personalised medication for children

Project objective(s)

The final product will be an online service for the healthcare system that supports medication for children and adolescents, taking into account patient and medication profile-specific influencing factors. A smartphone app allows for location-independent access to information.

The service enables doctors to check for drugs and known influencing factors and to retrieve information on existing diagnostic tests. Association with the service are appropriate diagnostics laboratories.

Mediheld – mobile supply log for rural areas

Project objective

Increase of the efficiency and effectivity of healthcare services provided to patients in home care in rural areas.

Project summary

Home care services in rural areas are inefficient. Doctors as well as care services and patient relatives must travel long distances between their bases, the patients and pharmacies/medical supply centres. In many cases, drugs are not in stock, require ordering by the pharmacy and must be delivered via courier at a later time. In many cases, auxiliary supplies are delivered at a later time by supply centres due to their size.

Open Innovation for sustainable health care solutions

Project objectives(s): Solution of innovation challenges in the area of medical technology/healthcare, building of a powerful expert community

Project summary: The project "Open Innovation for sustainable healthcare solutions" aims at finding answers to complex questions within the innovation area of products and services in medical technology. Using an online platform, research and development questions that could not be answered internally, can be put through to an expert community that is technically heterogeneous.

Intersector communication of medication information

Project objective(s)

It is the objective of this model project to improve the pharmacotherapy safety by intersectoral networking and communication of medication data. To achieve this, more than 20 practises are electronically connected and bound to the information system of the central emergency room of the Fürth hospital centre.

For the first time, this extensive networking enables registered and hospital doctors comprehensive transfer of medication data and a validation of the prescribed drugs for tolerance.

Optimisation of individual medication (personalised medicine) of polypharmaceutical patients

Project objective

In order to avoid non-calculable risks and side effects of medication, the use of specific medications should be limited to a necessary and manageable minimum. The objective of the project is a limitation of the prescribed medication to few specific substances (5-7 medicinal products).

By means of using state-of-the-art technology linked with databases to achieve medical interaction with actual prescriptions, individual risks and intolerances should be identified, communicated to the doctor in charge and taken into consideration.

Efficient steady prescription of medical products - ISDV

Project objective(s)

The objective and the nature of the project is the creation of a software product "integrated system for continuous prescription" that is designed to achieve a significant increase of efficiency via repeated provision of prescriptions and the appropriate medical products within the framework of a continuous prescription or medication. The objectives take priority:

  • Quality improvements in care services for patients who require certain medication or other medical supplies on a regular basis.
  • Lowering of the organisational efforts and costs for continuous prescription or
