32. GOTS Annual Congress: "Digital patient file - is that manageable?"
32. GOTS ANNUAL CONGRESS
Digital Health Record - Rethinking of Data Ownership - Back to the Owner
THE INTEREST OF PEOPLE TO LIVE A LONG, well-balanced and most importantly healthy life is constantly increasing. Activity, nutrition, organ activity, etc. - everything can be tracked and measured via mobile phones and apps. Consequently, the German health care sector needs to be committed to the continuously advancing digitalisation. Especially a better usage of data as well as the implementation or rather the continuation of patient autonomy play an essential part.
Stefan Heilmann regularly talks about the digital trends and he emphasizes that e-health is one of the major trends these days. In 2016 he has founded the company DoctorBox. DoctorBox puts its focus on digital health, the data management within this sector and the creation of digital patient files.
Heilmann explains the concept of DoctorBox as follows: "Our approach is completely different than the one of the legislator. Their projects have always failed due to data security and data protection. The fundamental mistake was that patient data could be accessed through insurances, hospitals and doctors. We want to create an electronic file that is solely controlled by the patient. Just the patient himself determines who can see which data."
