Telemedicine as an alternative

Dear Sir or Madam,

As in many other areas of our lives, the Corona pandemic also had an impact on communication between doctors and patients. We have a lot of catching up to do in the field of telemedicine in Germany – especially when it comes to the quality of the services on offer. Find out which projects can already close this gap in our Topic of the Month.

Stay healthy!
