Koblenz (euro adhoc) - Koblenz / Hattingen - November 5, 2008: ISPro GmbH, a subsidiary  of  CompuGROUP Holding AG, Koblenz, notches up another success  for  its  telemedicine  portal. ISPro's client, the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Düsseldorf,  is  honoured  at  the 4th Hospital Communication Congress 2008.

Hattingen-based ISPro GmbH's telemedicine portal jesaja.net®  has   received  the Hospital Award 2008  for  the  "Best  Referral   Concept"  at  the  4th  Hospital Communication  Congress  2008.    Out of  approximately  200  applications  from Germany, Austria and Switzerland a total of five hospitals  were  nominated  for this award. The Evangelisches Krankenhaus Düsseldorf  (EVK)  was   successful  in beating these  top-class  competitors  and  received   the  award  for  the  best referral concept.  The telemedicine portal has  been  successfully  utilised  by the EVK Düsseldorf since 2006. This referral portal  is  a  telematics  platform which  ensures   direct  communication  between  the  hospital  and  office-based doctors. "It is a  free  service  offered  by  the  hospital  to  its referring doctors.  The  portal  provides  the  referrers  with   secure  access  to  their patients' treatment data during their hospital treatment, and even enables  them to communicate direct with the hospital-based doctors," says Sascha Saßen,  Head of Corporate Development at the EVK Düsseldorf. Now, 40 doctors as well  as  two rehab and specialist clinics are connected to the EVK's system.

As a web-based doctors' portal, jesaja.net®  offers  the  linked   hospitals  and doctors the option of trans-sectoral collaboration.   This  includes  appointment scheduling,  surgery    registrations,     equipment    disposition    as    well    as communication among the doctors themselves. This ensures that  doctors  on  both sides can monitor the course of treatment for  the  respective  patients.   Thus, duplicate examinations can be avoided and costs minimised. In the process,  data protection is the top priority. Information can only be  retrieved  after  prior approval by the patient and the hospital.    Thereby,  the  office-based  doctors only have access to their own patients' data relating to the current  course  of treatment. The data is accessed via a secure Internet connection. On no  account will any direct access to the Hospital Information System (HIS) be granted.  The existing software in the office-based doctor's surgery is sufficient for the  IT infrastructure. No expansion  is   necessary.    The  system  will  also  smoothly integrate into the docotor's working day.

Frank Gotthardt, CompuGROUP Holding AG CEO: "This new  award  affirms our  work and  once  again  reflects  the  capabilities  of  our   software  solutions  for hospitals."

"The ISPro referral portal enables doctors and the  hospital  to   work  hand  in hand," says Michael Franz,  Managing  Director  of   ISPro  GmbH.  "ISPro  allows health records to be used by the hospital and office-based  doctors,  as  direct

"I am delighted that such a strong Hattinger team  is  part  of  the  CompuGROUP group  of  companies.  With  jesaja.net®  our  colleagues  at    ISPro    have    a magnificently positioned product which ensures an  ideal  safe  electronic  link between the involved parties ", stresses Frank Gotthardt.
