PHTS signs Germany wide care contracts

with BKK ESSANELLE and BKK Merck. The Germany wide health insurance company BKK ESSANELLE attends for approximately 400,000 insured. BKK ESSANELLE covers employees of numerous well-known companies from the chemical industries, biotechnology and mechanical engineering sectors such as the Essanelle Hair product Group, Henkel, Schering, MAN and Rhine metal.

BKK Merck is the public health insurance company of the
pharmaceutical company Merck based in Darmstadt.
SHL’s subsidiary in Germany, PHTS Telemedizin, through its monitoring centre based in Dusseldorf, will provide the insured of BKK ESSANELLE and BKK Merck suffering from serious heart illnesses (NYHA phases II-IV) with improved care, control of medication and other services, around the clock.

Eyal Lewin, Managing Director of PHTS, comments: “These contracts underline the confidence that renowned organisations put in PHTS. Also, they show how German healthcare insurers increasingly use telemedicine solutions to achieve better care for their insured together with improved cost effectiveness – i.e. a reduction of hospital
admissions and hospitalisation days – when treating heart patients in our monitoring centre.”
