iSOFT Wins FT Deutschland Award for Ansbach Project

iSOFTiSOFT has won a Financial Times Deutschland award for a telehealth project at the Landkreis Ansbach hospital that was judged one of the top ten healthcare IT projects in Germany.

Now in its sixth year, the FT Deutschland awards (Ideenpark Gesundheitswirtschaft) recognize the ten most innovative healthcare IT projects and this year received 100 entries. Judges said the iSOFT project provides 'an IT platform with an electronic health record (EHR) that overcomes barriers for all those involved in patient care and builds up a home care structure'.

iSOFT and the hospital Landkreis Ansbach have collaborated to develop a solution that integrates the hospital's e-health solutions with new telemonitoring applications so patients are transferred seamlessly from inpatient treatment to outpatient follow-up and home care.

The hospital has focused on providing the highest levels of care by investing in its iSOFT EHR solution. The EHR is fed medical data from all organizations within the hospital network, including GPs, and now also data from home monitoring devices, enabling patients to stay at home and so free-up hospital beds.

The project also aims to cut waiting times and unnecessary duplication of examinations. iSOFT's enterprise resource scheduling solution is also helping the hospital to utilize beds, operating rooms and equipment fully and increase efficiency generally.

The award was given jointly to iSOFT and Landkreis Ansbach at the FT Deutschland Conference on Health Economics in Berlin.

"We are extremely pleased with the award of the common project and are highly motivated to implement our objectives together with iSOFT," said Dr Andreas Goepfert, managing director of the Landkreis Ansbach hospital.
