3. Gesundheitswirtschaftskonferenz mit Bundesminister Rösler und Bundesminister Bahr gestartet

Datum: 5.12.2012

BMWi-Pressemitteilungen: 3. Gesundheitswirtschaftskonferenz mit Bundesminister Rösler und Bundesminister Bahr gestartet

Der Bundesminister für Wirtschaft und Technologie, Dr. Philipp Rösler, und der Bundesminister für Gesundheit, Daniel Bahr, haben heute in Berlin die 3. Gesundheits-
wirtschaftskonferenz
eröffnet. Im Mittelpunkt der Konferenz unter dem Titel "Gesundheitswirtschaft geht online - Chancen eines digitalen Aufbruchs" stehen Verbesserungen im Gesundheitssektor durch stärkere digitale Vernetzung. Rösler und Bahr warben dafür, die Chancen der digitalen Technologien offensiv zu nutzen. Zugleich sei die Wirtschaft gefordert, den Nutzen der neuen Möglichkeiten für die Anwender eingängiger zu vermitteln und Ärzte und Patienten für den Einsatz der modernen Technologien zu gewinnen.

Bundesminister Rösler: "Der stärkere Einsatz digitaler Technologie kann dabei helfen, unser exzellentes Gesundheitssystem für die Zukunft aufzustellen. Vernetzung und Digitalisierung schaffen enormen Fortschritt: mehr Sicherheit bei Therapien, größere Flexibilität und mehr Lebensqualität für Patienten, und damit bessere Behandlungsergebnisse. So können zudem Kosten stabilisiert und Wettbewerbschancen genutzt werden. Wenn wir vorankommen wollen, brauchen wir eine enge Zusammenarbeit zwischen IT-Branche und Gesundheitssektor. Beide sind in Deutschland aufgrund der Innovationsdynamik wichtige Wachstumsbranchen."

Bundesminister Bahr: "Eine gute medizinische Versorgung ist darauf angewiesen, dass alle für die Behandlung relevanten Informationen da verfügbar sind, wo sie gebraucht werden. Und dass sie zu dem Zeitpunkt verfügbar sind, zu dem sie gebraucht werden. Mit dem Versorgungsstrukturgesetz haben wir Telemedizin erstmals in Deutschland in einem Gesetz verankert. Das ist ein Signal in alle Richtungen: Es schafft Klarheit und Sicherheit für Anwenderinnen und Anwender, aber auch für Behandlerinnen und Behandler und nicht zuletzt für Hersteller von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien. Es kommt jetzt darauf an, die Potenziale von eHealth für die flächendeckende Nutzung zu erschließen und sicher in die Praxis umzusetzen."

Die Gesundheitswirtschaftskonferenz des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Technologie ist das zentrale Forum, auf dem ab jetzt jedes Jahr wichtige Zukunftsthemen der Gesundheitswirtschaft diskutiert werden. Die in enger Kooperation mit dem Bundesgesundheitsministerium durchgeführte Veranstaltung dient dem intensiven Austausch zwischen Entscheidungsträgern aus Politik, Gesundheitsversorgung und Wirtschaft.

George Washington University Department of Anthropology Collects pliance hand data in Ileret, Kenya!

Dr. Erin Marie Williams collected pliance hand data on a variety of subjects this summer in Ileret Kenya. She is investigating early toolmaking. During this process, rocks of different hardness are banged together and the flakes which result become a primitive tool. Her previous lab research at GWU was recently published in the Journal of Human Evolution.

This series of pictures shows Dr. Williams, a few students/subjects, and a group of Daasanach (the native people of Ileret, Kenya). The subjects were making simple Oldowan choppers using ignimbrite and basalt, two raw materials found throughout Ileret and which our early human ancestors used for stone tool production and use.

emed platform in Dr. Abbas´s Center in Tanzania - follow-up after one year of use

Installation was done in the end of the 2010.

We installed e-med scan and have a separate room for it. Person who handles it had an opportunity to travel to India in 2010 and I had arranged for her to be trained in India. This was a great opportunity and blessing that everything worked out perfect. When she came back fortunately our e-med scan was ready to be handled by her. So Kulsum and I started it in December 2010 and did several practicals on our on 14 staffs including doctors followed by some patients and relatives so her hand can get very well.

So officially we started from 2ndJanuary 2011. All new cases came to our centre and were able to walk underwent this e-med scan test. I had full time special person in this case we can say assistant podiatrist Kulsum full time to do everything concerning e-med scan. Kulsum saw all the patients on e-med scan to fill up to all the data, to advise and modify the shoes and feeding data in the computer. On all the patients e-med tests were done completely free of charge at our centre. All the patients were given advised and treatment as well was all free of charge contributed by the centre for the past one year now.

In one year and three months we have managed collected about 440 cases underwent e-med scan till March 2012. Each patient underwent extensive collection of data as we were given data base in the program. This includes basic dermographic of the patients, data related to foot and foot wear, data related to e-med scan and e-med scan measurements itself. Apart from these data which we have in the program we have also collected other related data from our side. 
All patients are extremely happy as we have prevented lots of ulcers which could have sustained by all these patients. All of them have been given advised on the foot wear.
In conclusion e-med scan has been very beneficial and successful in prevention of amputation in our poor destitute patients with diabetes.
