Consortium of UNITY AG, m.Doc GmbH and TeleTracking GmbH develops innovative overall solution
Braunschweig, February 16, 2022: Braunschweig Municipal Hospital (SKBS) has announced the launch of a digital patient portal with a platform for capacity management and patient flow. The consortium of UNITY AG, m.Doc GmbH and Teletracking GmbH are developing a comprehensive and integrated solution that will enable patients to manage their appointments and records online, while the hospital will benefit from automated capacity management and staff support software.
Patients at Braunschweig Municipal Hospital will be able to make their appointments online and exchange any required documentation digitally with the hospital. They will be assisted by an app in navigating the hospital grounds; select their meals by app; receive information about their treatment on their smartphone, and much more. The solution also includes comprehensive support for any follow-up care that may be required, with digital appointment booking and the forwarding of patient documentation to follow-up care facilities.
"Not only will our patients benefit from better services, but hospital staff will also benefit from a reduced number of administrative tasks by the introduction of this innovative overall solution. This project plays a significant part in helping us achieve our goal of 'focusing on people'," emphasizes Dr. Andreas Goepfert, Managing Director of SKBS.
SKBS is handing over the management and implementation of the project, which is funded by the Hospital Future Act, to a consortium led by UNITY AG, a consulting firm experienced in digital transformation projects. UNITY AG will implement the solution based on the software and expertise of m.Doc GmbH, the market leader in patient portals in Germany with its Smart Clinic, and TeleTracking GmbH, the market leader for patient flow and capacity management software. "Here, leading companies in their field have joined forces in a unique partnership to implement this challenging project in one of Germany's largest hospitals," explains Tomas Pfänder, CEO of UNITY AG.
"To conceive and implement the introduction of a patient portal in such a holistic way is outstanding. The Braunschweig Municipal Hospital will undoubtedly set the standard in the German hospital landscape. We are very pleased to have played a part in this," emphasizes Admir Kulin, Managing Director of m.Doc GmbH.
"We consider the jointly implemented project to be market-leading for hospitals in Germany. Thanks to the increased efficiency in hospital operations, staff now have more time for what is essential - patient care," Chris Johnson, President and Co- CEO at TeleTracking Technologies.
"By introducing a patient portal, we will enable holistic digital communication with patients both before and after their stay in the hospital. In addition, thanks to the portal, the structured transfer of documents to aftercare facilities is also ensured," adds Dr. Raimar Goldschmidt, CEO of skbs.digital.
