Medication plan: simply share it via "eMMa"

Dear Sir or Madam,

One of the most time-consuming processes when a patient is admitted to hospital is the anamnesis of medication: What drugs does the patient take? In what dosage? Are there drug interactions? Digital transmission of data can save a lot of time here that can be used in actual patient care. Learn in our current interview how the app "eMMa" can help here.

Stay healthy!
