Bavaria, as well as Brandenburg, will continue to support telemedicine projects. Altogether, since 1995 Bavaria has invested nearly eleven million euros in telemedicine pilot projects; additional financial support of two million euros for further expansion is now being made available.
170,000.00 euros have just been approved for the Augsburg hospital. The money will be used to extend its existing telemedical range for heart attack patients. It will connect emergency services in the Augsburg area to a data network which will transfer details of heart attack patients from the ambulance to the Augsburg hospital in advance.
