Meeting of Global Healthcare Players

CompuGroup MedicalOn October 25 and 26, 2010, healthcare players will meet in Hamburg at the Global E‐Health Forum. Under the "Strategies, Solutions and Services" topic, decision‐makers, users and providers will have the opportunity to learn from each other and to establish relationships. As a platinum partner, CompuGroup Medical supports the transnational exchange of expert's knowledge and will present own innovations.

Medical knowledge grows at an astonishing rate - it doubles approximately every 4 years. Physicians are inundated with a flood of complex information and guidelines. This is barely manageable for any individual. However, it can be doable, with IT‐supported knowledge transfer. The magic word is software‐assisted medicine (SAM). In a presentation on October 25th, CompuGroup Medical (CGM) will share information about the characteristics of intelligent medical decision support systems provided through CGM SAM.

The CGM SAM solutions create a link between medical actions, medical knowledge and the service provider: the CGM SAM server supports medical treatment teams in pending decisions. This is the pivotal element of the system: It stores clinical pathways, prepares patient data and provides individual suggestions for guidelineappropriate therapy. The information is tailored to each patient's individual health data and is offered individually for each patient in the doctor information system, precisely when the physician needs this support.

Beyond that, CGM SAM solutions enable the electronic exchange and linkage of medical information between various service providers. CompuGroup Medical is thusly the first provider of complex medical knowledge in a preprocessed, contextappropriate format. This makes CGM SAM the most modern form of healthcare system organization - with a proven increase in efficiency of more than 15%.

One out of every two physicians in Germany uses CompuGroup Medical software solutions and globally there are 370,000 customers in 18 countries. This extensive coverage provides the prerequisites to be able to deliver the complicated procedures of software‐assisted medicine (SAM) and to securely link sensitive data beyond the confines of medical practices, hospitals and even across borders, for the best quality in patient care and maximum health benefits.
