The Landesregierung (state government) of North-Rhine Westphalia has committed to investing EUR 25 million over 3 years for the promotion of health through telematics.
Almost half of the funding will go towards electronic records. In the developments of future IT projects in health care, the needs of doctors in particular must be considered.
„We need to see how doctors operate in their practices, and see how we can provide a structure to help“ said the Head of Health Care and Telematics for the NRW-Gesundheitsministerium, Matthias Redders. (Quote translated by KonMedia)
