MD, General Practitioner, COB Gesundheitsnetz Jura eG
After 15 years of managing my own surgery as a General Practitioner, in a paper-free surgery, (www.dr-steinbach.de) in an eastern district of Bamberg, the city “Scheßlitz”, I have noticed many media-disruptions in patient care.
Another problem is the nursing aspect. Through my experience as an orderly, I saw this deficiency. Many years of Doctor studies, working as an Assistant Doctor of surgery, becoming a registered doctor, and finally establishing my own Surgery, all of this has made me aware of the breakdown of communication in the clinical-care of patients.
Since 8 years I have the pleasure to direct along with two other Board of Directors a 47 person Doctors Association (www. gesundheitnetz-jura.de)
Not only permitted Doctors but also head physicians and management of the district location are present. (www.krankenhausgmbh-bamberg.de)
Over many years we work together on the improvement of communication between the treatment of the patients from all the different doctors involved.
In April 2018 we want to join and expand the District Network so that 70 Doctors in 2 surgeries belong to us.
One of our aims is to be active in improving the wound management.
I took the wound conference in Bad-Staffelstein (www.wundkongress-bad-staffelstein.de) and in April 2015 the “Wundnetz Franken”.
Here I mentioned the basis system in Bayern of chronical wounds and an improved therapy that should lead to an internet based Patient file.
Currently we are striving for a network approval from the KVB from “87b Absatz 4 SGB V”.
We would like a compulsory computerized-system for all network members.
All of the service areas must work together to achieve a mutual more efficient network to improve the problems between ambulant and stationary treatments.
