Telemedicine services to AOK

PHTS Telemedizin to provide telemedicine services to AOK Rheinland/Hamburg through telemedicine net established in Cologne
Providing three million people with healthcare cover, AOK Rheinland/Hamburg is the largest health insurance fund in the Rhineland and Hamburg regions. Together with Barmer Ersatzkasse, which provides health insurance to over 7.2 million people
throughout Germany, this represents the next step in offering telemedicine solutions to all people in Cologne who suffer from chronic heart conditions.

“The fact that AOK Rheinland/Hamburg has now joined the HNC should encourage other health insurers to see the benefits of telemedicine and to join this network”, stressed Erez Alroy, Co-CEO of SHL Telemedicine. “Experience has shown that telemedicine can significantly improve the quality of care offered to patients suffering
from chronic heart disease.” This novel approach of integrated care integrates family doctors, medical specialists, standard city hospitals, rehabilitation centers, the Heart Center of the Universitätsklinikum in Cologne and PHTS Telemedizin in working together to achieve this goal.

PHTS Telemedizin, established in Düsseldorf, is a wholly owned subsidiary of SHL Telemedicine. PHTS Telemedizin combines innovative telemedicine solutions with well-founded medical-technical know-how. PHTS holds a leading position throughout Germany in the field of cardiological telemedicine.
