We support companies of the healthcare industry with our services. Going forward we will personalize medicine by developing and evaluating digital solutions for improving individual patients’ health while protecting them and their data, securing diagnoses, and systematically documenting all information.

Our applications support preventive healthcare at home and at work, as well as diagnostics and therapy at physicians’ practices, in hospitals and clinics, and in connection with nursing and rehabilitation.
