To our great pleasure, bm|t Investee Partner Pflegeplatzmanager GmbH was awarded the dfg.Award 2020, known as the industry award of the German healthcare sector, in the category “Outstanding digital innovations and future projects in care”.
The dfg.Award is presented annually to innovative companies in Germany and is known as the Oscar of the healthcare sector. The background is that the prize is awarded by an independent jury of experts. Companies and institutions cannot apply for this award, but are nominated by experts and the readers of relevant trade journals.
Accordingly, the nomination list included many renowned and innovative players in the health sector, such as the university hospitals from Schleswig-Holstein (Kiel/ Lübeck) and Dresden. But in particular also the health insurance companies, such as AOK, Barmer, DAK and BKK, as well as other innovative companies.
“We have been able to win a number of awards since 2018, for example the Thuringian Founder Award 2017, Thuringian Innovation Award 2018, German Digital Award 2019. The dfg.Award 2020 rounds off this collection and is something very special as it is awarded by healthcare professionals,” says Alexander Bauch (Managing Director Pflegeplatzmanager GmbH). “It’s great that we have the opportunity to really deliver added value to those in need of care — even if you only feel it indirectly. We now connect our 183 hospital and rehabilitation clinic customers with the majority of inpatient and outpatient care providers in Germany. Thanks to an extensive database, the clinics can even contact 91% of all care stakeholders,” adds Chris Schiller (Managing Director Pflegeplatzmanager GmbH).
The award is both praise and incentive. Currently, the product is being further developed together with one of the largest health insurance companies in Germany, with the focus on, among other things, the digital sending of cost applications (AHB application) in the case of a patient’s need for rehabilitation. The award ceremony will take place in Berlin, where Schiller and Bauch are looking forward to further contacts with cost units in order to expand the portfolio in the health insurance sector.
