Koblenz (euro adhoc) - October 27, 2010: CompuGroup Medical AG will invest 130 million Euros in the healthcare system within the next 5 years.  Operating expenses will include the already initiated development of innovative new products in the Software Assisted Medicine (SAM) product line. Various tools for the online communication between the medical office team and the patient will be introduced with the second of ten planned expenditures: CGM Life eServices. They will simplify daily activities in the medical office and save time and money - with additional benefits for the patients. They are also designed to be especially user-friendly and are therefore a very effective instrument for successful marketing by the medical office.

The Internet enables the convenient organization of many daily tasks from home - around the clock and on the weekend. Very soon this will also include the communication between the medical office and the patient: CompuGroup Medical is one of the first companies in Germany that has developed a fully integrated on- line service for medical offices - the CGM Life eServices.

In the near future, ‚onlineTerminbuchung` (online appointment scheduling), ‚onlineRezepte` (online prescriptions), ‚onlineBefunde` (online findings inquiries) and ‚onlineSprechstunde` (online consultations) can be taken care of via the medical office website. After the conclusion of the current pilot program, these CGM Life eServices will be launched throughout Germany in early 2011.  A special point of interest for the physician: the data is compatible with the doctor information system and is transferred within seconds. The online services not only represent an innovative additional service for patients, they also lower administrative expenditures and efforts and cut down on phone calls. This results in the entire medical office team having more time for what is really important: Increasing the efficiency of the medical office, especially patient care.

Here´s an example: Mr. Müller doesn´t feel well and wants to see his doctor.  On his primary physician´s website, he can  see  the   available  under  the  online appointment scheduling and sends an appointment inquiry.  The  office  assistant confirms it directly from the calendar of  her  doctor  information  system  and initiates a reminder text message a few hours prior  to  the  appointment.   This effectively reduces downtime due to unkept appointments.

In the medical office,  the  physician  diagnoses  Mr.  Müller  with a  chronic illness and points out the online prescription section  to him:  After  he  has used up his supply of medication, the patient is able  to  conveniently  request another prescription via the website and  avoids  unnecessary  phone  calls  and wait times in the physician´s office.

Prior to his outpatient surgery, Mr. Müller still has a few questions. With  the online consultation, the medical office staff is able  to  conveniently  answer his questions via the doctor information system. Waiting on hold is therefore  a thing of the past. In  addition,  the  dialogue  is  immediately  saved  to  Mr. Müller´s chart.

After the surgery, the patient wants  to  know  more  about  the   findings.  His attending physician makes the information available to him  -  it  is  just  one mouse click away under the online findings inquiries. Once Mr.  Müller  is  back home again, he logs in via the medical office website and is able  to  view  his findings and even print them out.

Not only does the physician gain valuable time through CGM Life eServices, which he is able to spend seeing other patients, he also increases the efficiency of his medical office and scores points with his patients by providing them with this popular additional service. Even more importantly: the electronic data exchange is handled in a highly secure manner via CompuGroup Medical´s vita-X technology, which is TÜV-certified (German Association for Technical Inspections) and is one of the most secure systems worldwide.
