Frank Gotthardt Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

dfg-Award 2013

Koblenz, June 17th, 2013: Frank Gotthardt, the CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG, was awarded the honorary dfg Award® for Lifetime Achievement. With this prize, the jury acknowledges the visionary buildup of one of the world’s leading eHealth-companies. The award was presented on June 13th, 2013 in Hamburg as part of the dfg Awards® 2013 in the presence of 200 guests, decision-makers and public health professionals.

“I am very excited that CGM AG’s performance and my contribution as founder and CEO have been acknowledged. However, our work is by no means finished. My aim is to make highquality health care available for everyone at any time. In the coming years, I would also like to invest my full energy in helping to shape the healthcare sector through entrepreneurial freedom," said Frank Gotthardt. The laudatory speech was given by Dr. Norbert Klusen, the former CEO of Germany’s Techniker Krankenkasse and last year’s winner of the honorary dfg Award ®.

The dfg Award® has been awarded since 2009. Decision makers from the healthcare sector submitted their suggestions for six categories in advance and a seven person jury then determined the nominees. Readers of the publications, dfg – Dienst für Gesellschaftspolitik and A+S aktuell – Ambulant und Stationär aktuell, both of which are published by the Berliner MC.B GmbH, submitted their votes for the nominees.

The award in the category for "Outstanding Innovation in Patient Care" was awarded by CGM AG. The award went to NOVITAS BKK of Duisburg and MDK Nordrhein of Düsseldorf for the unique nationwide project entitled “Children’s Case Management: Better Care for Critically Ill Children."
