Healthcare Management Prize: Winners 2016

1st Place:

“Flüchtlinge verstehen” (understanding refugees)
Submitted by: arztkonsultation.de / Bertelsmann Stiftung

Dr. Marc Dangers, Dipl.-Phys. Marc Mausch, Dr. Ole Roßbach, arztkonsultation.de, 1st Place for the project
To take in refugees seems to be the biggest social challenge in Germany since decades. Thereby, medical supply is a key factor. Nonetheless, a lot of times the treatment of refugees fails due to language barriers. Therefore, arztkonsultation.de in cooperation with the Bertelsmann Foundation startet the project „Flüchtlinge verstehen“ (understanding refugees). During the medical examination, practitioners can use the free portal arztkonsultation.de to connect with an interpreter (selectable by language).
 


2nd Place:

Measuring quality of results and frequent surgeon benchmarking improves quality of functional and oncological treatment outcome.
Submitted by: Martini-Klinik am UKE GmbH

Dr. Detlef Loppow, Director, Martini-Klinik am UKE GmbH, 2nd Place
Since 1992 already, the Martini-Klinik and the UKE asks former patients of the center for prostate cancer about the quality of their treatment outcome. The questioning takes place 7 days and 3 or 6 months after the procedure, then annualy. The survey is conducted by means of validated questionaires, also specified to the type of disease. Every 6 months the 10 surgeons of the Martini-Klinik are able to compare their performance in terms of outcome quality among each other as well as with their prior results. If the performance of one surgeon differs distinctly from the one of his collegues he has to perform a surgery in front of them in order to identify reasons and improve his outcomes.

The network still connects the most important paediatric oncology centers in 19 European countries. In 2015, Australia, New Zealand and Israel joined as well. Every week, pictures of about 30 patients arrive to give a central treatment recommendation – with increasing frequency. Since the volumina of data is also increasing, a new server was added. Besides the fast and secure data transmission, hospitals are also able to use programmes for data analysis, which are provided on the central server.
