Digital technologies can help us to find better solutions to the challenges of the future (growing number of chronically sick people, lack of medical care in structurally weak rural areas). They enable better and more efficient care and broader access to medical expertise, especially in rural areas. New forms of better care for patients staying at home can also be implemented.

During the course of the increasing digitalization of the health care system, the amount of information that can be used to control not only the care processes, but also the structures of the care processes is growing. In the interests of optimal patient care, a way has to be found to tap into these data treasures more consistently. The aim must be to use the data in the future in such a way that prevention and treatments can be initiated earlier.

For many years the Schüchtermann-Klinik has been carrying out scientific work on the development of innovative concepts to support patients with life-long aftercare (phase III rehabilitation). A further current focus is the care of heart failure patients with the help of telemedical procedures.
