CompuGroup Medical AG and Microsoft Focus on Mobile Applications in Healthcare Together

Koblenz, March 28, 2014: CompuGroup Medical AG (CGM), a leading provider for eHealthsolutions worldwide, and Microsoft entered into strategic cooperation. In a mutual action plan, both Microsoft and CGM are investing in mobile services for better communication between doctors and patients based on CGM LIFE eSERVICES and Windows 8.1. Through this cooperation, CGM will strengthen its portfolio of mobile healthcare solutions for patients and doctors thus expanding its global technology leadership in the healthcare industry.

“A driving force in the healthcare sector in Germany are cloud computing and mobile solutions”, said Christian Köth, Director of Healthcare Microsoft Germany. “Currently, mobile services are revolutionizing the communication between doctors and patients. Thus, the cooperation with CompuGroup Medical is of great strategic importance for us”, added Köth. With CGM LIFE eSERVICES, which is already used by 180,000 patients in six countries, doctors can network with patients in a completely new way, e. g. to book appointments or request prescriptions, communicate in a secure online dialog or conveniently and securely manage medical findings.

“The cooperation with Microsoft is strategically important to us in order to further strengthen our innovative leadership in the eHealth area. I am pleased that Microsoft also puts its trust in the CGM LIFE eSERVICES platform and that we will develop valuable services for the Windows platform together in the future”, said Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG.

In the scope of the cooperation, mobile applications, such as the patient App “myDoktor“, or mobile appointment booking apps for doctors will be developed for the Windows 8.1 platform. The foundation for this will be the CGM LIFE eSERVICES crypto platform, in which medical data can be securely stored. As part of the cooperation, this platform will be equipped with a software development kit enabling our partner to develop mobile health apps for Windows 8.1 which use the medical cloud of CGM and are able to profit from the CGM LIFE integration to doctor’s information systems.
