One of the key themes at the upcoming CeBIT is digital health. A wide range of presentations during the d!talk healthcare conference on June 13 are focusing on the potential effects of digitization on healthcare systems, patients and doctors. Topics up for debate include the trend toward telemedicine, which is arguably already a reality following official approval of a model project in Germany. With the help of the TeleClinic platform, more than 200 participating medical specialists and general practitioners can now consult, treat and issue prescriptions to patients around the clock via video conference, smartphone or telephone - no need to wait, and patients can even call on weekends or public holidays.
The TeleClinic solution is based on the IBM innovation platform in Frankfurt, Germany. "For 2018, we have customized our cloud solutions to meet European market requirements to enable the IBM Cloud to fulfill our customers' expectations in all sectors in terms of security, flexibility and data access," said Yasser Eissa, Vice President, IBM Cloud & Cognitive Europe. "TeleClinic is a prime example of how we can provide fledgling companies with bespoke open cloud solutions for new business models." The Munich-based startup benefits from the open source standards of the IBM Cloud in Frankfurt. As the stored data is subject to German law, the cloud's location in Germany plays an equally vital role, since medical consultation and treatment as well as data security and data protection are a top priority.
