The winners are announced!
The winners of the getIT Health Tourism competition of ideas were honored by Secretary of State Rickerts on April 27, 2017 at the conhIT event. The competition promotes new, digital concepts and ideas in health tourism. The first prize went to the medical tourism specialist MedLango, which developed the Berlin Health App in cooperation with the companies DocYet and GoClinic, and second place went to the medical-technology company MEYTEC for the idea of telemedical representations of the Berlin-Brandenburg health region abroad.
The Berlin Health App: global health benefits in Berlin.
The Berlin medical tourism specialists Med Lango, the Lüneburg assistance provider DocYet and the Dutch patient information system GoClinic are together developing a holistic mobility solution for international medical tourists in Berlin. The new Berlin Health App combines digital and personal assistance capabilities in order to provide patients with comprehensive information and support before, during and after their treatment. This all-round support package allows the patient to fully focus on recovery.
During the entire process, the new digital assistance service provides patients with comprehensive & fully-automated support, individualized recommendations for medical services as well as tourist packages, and up-to-date information about their treatment progress. The possibility of also requesting a personal interpreter, who cares for patients and relatives in the hospital and during their entire stay in Berlin, is also seamlessly integrated into the app.
Trailblazing technologies are behind the "Berlin Health App", such as a chatbot based on artificial intelligence and the exchange of sensitive data by means of highly secure blockchain technology. By focusing on international medical tourists from the emerging middle classes, innovative clinics and advanced tourism professionals will be able to implement a comprehensive consulting, supervision and support package based on secure processes and modern technologies.

MEYTEC GmbH: Telemedical representations of the Berlin-Brandenburg health region abroad
Central contact points are created in target countries for medical tourism by newly established telemedical representations. These must be technically equipped and operated with the supporting infrastructure. The German doctor can analyze the electronically available patient data and preliminary diagnoses and discuss the first possible treatment steps with the patient via secure video communication. The concept builds confidence and simplifies the diagnosis for the doctor and the decision to opt for treatment in Berlin-Brandenburg on the part of the patient.
