Koblenz (euro adhoc) - The new German Government has announced comprehensive reforms of the healthcare system for 2011. On October 01, the European Health Congress in Munich will provide the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information about this topic. In a discussion with Johannes Singhammer, member of the German parliament, the topics to be debated will include: what guideline-appropriate treatment could look like, what the new IT standards are and what challenges all this poses to physicians and health insurance providers.

"Guideline-appropriate delivery of healthcare - what are the benefits for the payers?" This is the first title of a series of lectures presented at the European Congress on October 01, from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm. First results from the integrated healthcare delivery pilot program, which was started in Saarland in 2008, will be presented. The numbers suggest the reasonable assumption that not only is there a better way to provide guideline-appropriate outpatient care, to the patient´s benefit, but it can also be provided at a lower cost.

To date, over 1000 type II diabetics are already enrolled in this effective program to manage the delivery of healthcare. The medical core element is the product SAM diabetes - a system for managing individual treatment approaches for patients. SAM diabetes is based on the healthcare delivery guidelines and actively provides the treating physician with supporting information at the time of patient contact. This solution from the family of software-assisted medicine (SAM) is offered to all of the health insurance providers throughout Germany and has already resulted in distinct successes in the delivery of healthcare to patients.

After the conclusion of that presentation, Uwe Eibich, Executive Vice President Central Europe, CompuGroup Medical AG, will explain how guideline-based software can effectively facilitate the work physicians carry out and how it can increase the profitability of the medical practice. The programs are fully integrated into the medical practice process and require a minimum of effort. Not only can the physician increase the efficiency of his medical practice with regard to process management and cost, but best of all, he can improve his patients´ quality of life.

During the second part of this event, Professor Jochen Taupitz, MD and Professor Gerald Spindler, MD, will present a lecture about patients entitlement to benefits and the significance of guidelines. The professors, who teach at the University of Mannheim and Göttingen, respectively, address the topic of patient safety and liability questions. The event will be moderated by Ulf Fink, retired senator and Congress President.
