Interactive “Health Election Check” for the Landtag (State Parliament)

CompuGroup Medical starts a free Internet portal

Koblenz – March 15, 2011: What do the election programs of the five major parties reveal? Starting today, the population in Rheinland-Pfalz and Baden-Württemberg can obtain a clear picture about that at www.ihre-gesundheit-steht-zur-wahl.de, at least with regard to healthcare. With just a few clicks, an interactive election check will demonstrate which of the various health policy goals best matches up with one’s own preferences. This independent offer was initiated by CompuGroup Medical and is now heading into its third round, after being available for the parliamentary elections in 2009 and the 2010 elections in Nordrhein-Westfalen.

It only takes five minutes at to obtain a cursory assessment of the health policy of the various political parties in Rheinland-Pfalz and Baden-Württemberg. For the upcoming state parliament elections, CompuGroup Medical has analyzed the election programs of the major parties and prepared a comparative analysis of their statements with regard to “healthcare questions”.

An Internet-based election check has been created that can quickly show the user whether his or her own opinions concur with the “written party line”. Among other things, it answers questions about the shortage of doctors or about preventive healthcare with the help of the election program statements. This makes a “must” for everyone who is interested in health.

Uwe Eibich, Executive Vice President Central Europe of CompuGroup Medical, emphasizes the specific support for the users: “Almost one out of two physicians in Germany works with our software solutions on a daily basis and uses them to support him/her with pending decisions. In a figurative sense, this portal pursues the same purpose. We help people to make better decisions thanks to transparent information. Everybody has to make their own decision though.”

The Internet portal is available free online until elections are held on Sunday, March 27, 2011.
