As a result of this project, circa one million patients will be supplied with CompuGROUP's vita-X healthcare file and networking solution Cordoba. The Madrid region is the third largest among Spain's 17 regions. The project might be expanded to other regions at any time. The multimedia patient file will be integrated in Axon, Medigest's information system for doctors. In this way doctors will be able to use all the electronic decision-making support offered by this innovative system, thus helping them to avoid unnecessary double medical examinations. Due to the doctor's access to the patient's medical history, the patient will receive a more effective medical treatment. Moreover, the electronic pharmaceutical can help to avoid the occurrence of unwanted drug reactions. If the doctor cannot be connected directly to the network via the existing practice software because it requires a program other than Axon, the file can still be accessed via a web interface. For this purpose, the doctor enters the data directly online into a web form and is subsequently connected to all electronic, decision-critical information. "This success of our Spanish colleagues demonstrates once more that CompuGROUP consequently pursues its path of conquering more ground in Europe with its unique solutions offered by the electronic patient file vita-X and the networking solution Cordoba. Patients and doctors in the Madrid region alike benefit from a holistically networked product landscape which offers a completely new way of supporting medical therapy," states Frank Gotthardt, Director of the Board of CompuGROUP Holding AG.
