CompuGroup Medical bundles data-based solutions with ambulatory information systems and appoints Daniela Hommel as CFO

October 5, 2023
  • CGM integrates business activities of the CHS segment into the AIS segment
  • Managing Director Consumer Health Management Information Systems Dr. Eckart Pech leaves CGM at his own request at the end of March 2024 after successfully building-up the data business
  • Administrative Board appoints Daniela Hommel as Chief Financial Officer effective March 2024

CompuGroup Medical SE & Co. KGaA (CGM), one of the world's leading e-health providers, continues to drive forward the customer focus of its digital solutions and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Core activities are bundled especially for CGM customers in order to drive digitization in healthcare even faster. Studies show that for every hour doctors and their teams can devote to patients, they spend three to four hours on administrative work. AI-based solutions can significantly reduce such inefficiencies in healthcare for the benefit of patients. In order to provide the best possible support for customers, the business activities in the CHS segment will be integrated in the AIS segment going forward.

Dr. Eckart Pech, Managing Director Consumer & Health Management Information Systems, is leaving the company at his own request as of March 2024 after the successful build-up phase of the data business. Since joining the company in November 2019, Eckart Pech had initially driven the expansion of the telematics infrastructure in Germany. With the increasing relevance of data usage to support physicians, he was responsible for the establishment and successful expansion of the data business.

Also effective as of March 2024, the Board of Directors appoints Daniela Hommel as Chief Financial Officer. Daniela Hommel has held various finance and controlling positions in the Fresenius Group since 2012. Since 2018 she was responsible for the performance of the Fresenius Helios segment as Chief Financial Officer. In 2022, she assumed the role of Chief Financial and Innovation Officer of Helios Global Health GmbH with the aim of improving access to healthcare worldwide with new forms of care. In addition, she has assumed business responsibility for Fresenius' digital daughter Curalie as CEO since 2022. Prior to that, she spent 14 years at KPMG, most recently as the responsible audit partner in the healthcare sector. Until she joins CompuGroup Medical, CEO Michael Rauch will continue to be responsible for the CFO role on an interim basis.

Frank Gotthardt, founder of CGM and Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented, "CGM remains a driver of digitization in healthcare, both nationally and internationally. Data-based solutions and artificial intelligence will play a decisive role in the future. With Daniela Hommel, we are gaining an excellent financial expert with experience in the healthcare sector. I would like to expressly thank Eckart Pech for his important contributions to CGM's success, especially in building data-based solutions. We wish him all the best for the future."

Michael Rauch adds: "While integrating the CHS business activities into the AIS segment, the focus is on the added value for physicians, whom we support in the digitization of healthcare. I look forward to working with Daniela Hommel, thank Eckart Pech for the excellent collaboration over the past four years and wish him all the best as well."
