Our software solution is a flat decision-making system, which learns and improves based on the daily data flow. We start to adapt our processes and models to any chronic disease, indication or monitoring process beginning from the first data entry.
If you have some ideas about supporting your patients outside of the clinic through continuous monitoring, guidance, and education for a particular indication, but you lack expertise in planning, technical and administrative implementation, do not hesitate to contact us. We are always glad to support you with our experience in evaluating the feasibility of your concept, designing a study, finding financial sources for the implementation of the proof of concept, and developing cases for the project scale-up.
In December 2019, following the WHO recommendations and urgent need of health care system modernization, the German government introduced a new law: The Digital Supply Act (DSG). It intends to create a favourable scientific and financial environment to catch up with the eHealth deficits in Germany and achieve an important milestone on the sustainability of the healthcare system.
DSG entitles around 73 million people in Germany to digital health applications (DiGA), which doctors can prescribe, and health insurance companies reimburse. The DIGA are software applications or automated “digital assistants”, designed to help patients understand and treat disease, injuries and achieve better health-related quality of life.
DSG and DiGA are expected to have a significant impact on the quality of medical outcomes. In March 2021, the German health insurance companies accepted four DiGA, with a further seven granted temporary status. Over 100 members under the umbrella association for digital healthcare have conducted studies to prove their effectiveness as a DiGA, aiming to be included in the official national DiGA list.
Below are some useful links to the growing service of DiGA.

ORGANISATIONS & GOVERNMENTS
Worldwide, governments committed themselves to the continuous development of the health care system to enhance the transition toward Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Sustainability of health care services, inclusiveness of access, and affordability have been recognised as guiding principles in the national healthcare development strategies. During the last decade, different governments have enacted a series of reforms that have led to substantial improvements, especially in the increased range and modernisation of medical services.
Despite remarkable achievements, there are still many issues to be resolved to improve the management of non-communicable diseases. In general, NCDs remain the leading cause of mortality worldwide. The problem is especially relevant for low and middle-income countries (LMIC), where different approaches are needed to tackle NCDs and the growing financial need for complications in medical care demand. First, the development of prevention and primary care services should be intensified. Second, the costs of cardiovascular, diabetic, and chronic respiratory disease management should be minimised through targeted essential evidence-based interventions.
Considering the alarming trend of NCDs, LMIC governments developed different activities and programs to defuse the current NCD situation. However, these measures are just the beginning of the complex process required to improve NCD-Management. This is also reflected in the World Health Organization’s recent recommendations, which emphasise the urgent need of governmental actions for the improvement of NCD-Management regarding quality control of medical services, financial protection, monitoring, prevention and health literacy.
We are cooperating with several governmental structures developing systems targeting the improvement of medical outcomes via the implementation of patient adherence support and continuous measurement of medical outcomes in daily practice. We are compliant with national NCDC action plans targets, such as reducing the risk of premature mortality from NCDs, halting the increase and spread of NCDs.

INFORMATION FOR INVESTORS
In December 2019, the German government introduced The Digital Supply Act (DSG). DSG entitles around 73 million people in Germany to digital health applications (DiGA). Around 2000 hospitals and 73,000 practices in the German healthcare system treat approximately 20 million cases annually. About 50% of them are the target group of the DiGA. The German Ministry of Health expects yearly cost savings of € 40 billion through developments caused by DSG implementation. The potential annual turnover of the DiGA segment is estimated at €5 billion.
We always have new DiGA-Projects in the pipeline. These projects run at different university clinics targeting various chronic diseases. Below you can see some of currently running projects in which can be invested to accelerate the development. We offer attractive business solutions with customisable exit options to participate and support on new DIGA Projects.
