  • Internet Portal for Telemedicine Programs Aiming to Change Patients' Lifestyles

    Telemedicine Consult

    At Medica 2016, SYMILA, the Fraunhofer Application Center at Hamm, will demo a telemedicine Internet portal for diabetics, which was implemented on behalf of DITG – Deutsches Institut für Telemedizin und Gesundheitsförderung. The portal, centerpiece of an E-Health intervention system, collects and evaluates the data from telemedicine devices and lets DITG coaches address each patient based on information about her/his current situation. The system satisfies the requirements for a “Medical Data Space (MedDS)” that guarantees a secure exchange of medical data, as specified by the Fraunhofer initiative “Industrial Data Space (IDS)”. Meet the Fraunhofer experts: Booth 10 / G05.
