Telemedicine involves innovative forms of treatment that enable doctors and specialists, or doctors and patients, to exchange information by means of advanced telecommunication technologies, rather than being restricted to the classic one-to-one consultations. A wide range of solutions are used in Brandenburg to support therapy, recovery, rehabilitation and prevention. For many years now, major telemedicine projects have been implemented in Brandenburg – such as the completed Fontane study on care for heart patients and the ongoing follow-on project Telemed 5000. With its outstanding research landscape, clinical expertise and highly specialised healthcare industry, the Berlin-Brandenburg region has developed into a dynamic testing ground for trialling new approaches in eHealth. The goal, however, is not only to pilot innovative products but also to make them marketable and implement them as standard care.
