The history of CompuGroup Medical SE began 25 years ago. In the early days of the industry, the computer scientist, Frank Gotthardt, recognized the benefits of software for the healthcare sector: doctors would rather use their power for healing than waste time with administrative tasks. His calling then became clear to him: to make medical IT successful to improve treatment for all people.
At the service of those who heal
Thus, the company put itself entirely at the service of the healthcare providers, physicians, pharmacists, laboratories and hospitals. The vision: to make their work increasingly easy and enriching. We have solutions helping with patient data acquisition and treatment options, electronic invoices, better practice organization – and much more!
Promoting communication and cooperation
Doctor’s practices, hospitals, laboratories and pharmacists are constantly in contact with one another and with the remaining involved parties in the healthcare sector, the health insurances and the industry. Information must be available at the right place and time. In order to reflect this reality in our structure, our subsidiaries were first merged and renamed CompuGROUP Holding AG. The company would become the driving force in bringing care givers closer together.
At the turn of the millennium, the company gained customers in other European countries, and later in Asia, Africa and the USA. To pave the way, the company went public with its listing on the stock exchange. In 2010, it was renamed CompuGroup Medical AG (CGM) and combined the subsidiaries under this brand. On February 09, 2016 the conversion to a European Stock Corporation (SE) took place. The company now has offices in 19 countries and is one of the leading international providers of software in the healthcare sector.
Patients play an active role in shaping their health
The next revolution has already begun: patients are playing a more active role in their health. CompuGroup Medical helps people be in the know about their own health, to hold an informative conversation with doctors and pharmacists and also to find enjoyment in taking preventative measures and in their healthcare. Today, CGM makes the secure and confidential online communication between doctor and patient possible with its CGM LIFE eSERVICES.
