Funding physician networks


With this funding, the German Foundation for the chronically ill aims to support the establishment of regional, IT-supported physicians networks with the help of start-up funding for a year.

The establishment of medical care networks should help to overcome between disciplines and sectors and to ensure a structured, coordinated and guideline-oriented care process.

Partner in a care network should develop common treatment concepts so that the diagnosis and treatment steps are coordinated and coherently build on one another.
