Telemedicine stands for innovative forms of treatment where two doctors or one physician and his patient can get in contact with each other using modern telecommunications instead of relying solely on a classic consultation. For instance, the doctor can monitor the patient’s bodyweight, blood pressure and other vital parameters and use various IT tools for therapy, recovery, rehabilitation or prevention. The Fontane Project already launched in Brandenburg for those who suffer from cardiovascular diseases is just an example of the possible telemedicine applications.
With its outstanding R&D landscape and clinical expertise, Berlin-Brandenburg offers a unique opportunity to realise telemedicine projects, especially as it is a vast region. In doing so, the emphasis is on breaking down the translation barriers — in other words, supporting the implementation of innovative approaches into standard healthcare.
