Focus on E-Health: Finnish Delegation Visits Health Kiosk
Under the theme, "Finnish Digitalization meets German Healthcare", representatives of innovative companies from Finland visited different Hamburg-based healthcare companies, among which were OptiMedis AG and Gesundheit für Billstedt/Horn UG. During the event in the newly opened health kiosk in the Billstedt neighbourhood, the head of the Finnish delegation lauded the implementation of the walk-in health centre in Hamburg using the Finnish "Terveyskioski" (health kiosk) as an inspiration and, with regard to the OptiMedis model presented at the beginning; emphasized common points of reference (e.g. the possibility of consistent implementation at regional level) and challenges (e.g. the creation of attractive incentive and reward systems) regarding the implementation of digital solutions. The visitors' presentations showed that Finnish e-Health solutions, such as apps that provide support for patients in the period before and after an operation or robotics solutions for an intelligent pharmacy, can be of interest for upcoming challenges in the German health sector. There was also a lively exchange revolving around the Digital & Health Innovation Centre recently founded by OptiMedis.
