Secure network connections

Dear Sir or Madam,

The term interoperability is currently all over the media. It describes the ability of different systems, devices and programs to work together to efficiently exchange information. Especially in medicine and medical technology, data exchange is very important to provide patients with extensive care. Andreas Grode from gematik explains in our interview what is currently happening around interoperability.

Have a nice week!

Children instinctively know this – exercising is fun, makes you happy and keeps you fit. This begs the question of when and why this innate love for movement dwindles in many of us as we get older.
