Forum Telemedizin GmbH was founded in 1999 and has been focused on technological innovations in the Healthcare Sector ever since.
The project "Forum Telemedizin" helped support a study of "internet-based asthma education for kids and teenagers" in cooperation with Barmer Ersatzkasse (BEK) and Glaxo SmithKline (GSK).
in 2003/2004 Boston Medical Center (BMC) decided to adapt this project to the US-American market, with the help of Forum Telemedizin GmbH and Cignus GmbH. The Project - named "BostonBreathes" has been online and running since December 2004. See Link for more information: http://www.bu.edu/fammed/bostonbreathes/Info.htm
A further project, which was carried out with the help of Munich-based Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität is called "Leben mit Mukoviszidose" (life with mucoviscidosis). In 2002 this project was awarded the “Bayern-Online-International Preis" by the Bavarian government. Its aim is to support mucoviscidosis patients (both teenagers and adults) with the treatment and daily life with the disease.
Together with our partner Health Insight Solutions GmbH (HIS) and Cignus GmbH, Forum Telemedizin GmbH has participated in various European E-Health projects within the last couple of years.
One of the EU-projects is the United4Health Project.
For this project, there have already been some interesting presentations in the European Parliament, especially for the diabetes section in Slovenia.
Through the use of our solution, they were not only able to reduce the hospitalisation rate by 50%, but also reduce the Hba1c average by 1%.
