More efficiency through digital process optimization
The focus of the collaboration is the integration of Recare's digital discharge management into the BEWATEC.ConnectedCare patient platform. The interoperable, highly secure platform provides hospitals with the infrastructure they need for sustainable digitization and process optimization. As part of the cooperation, both partners ensure the digital exchange of information between hospitals and downstream service providers as required by the Future of Hospitals Legislation. Patients are integrated into hospital processes and receive faster follow-up care thanks to Recare's discharge and transfer management. The result: efficient use of resources in all patient-centric processes - from patient admission to follow-up care.
"With BEWATEC.ConnectedCare for admission and treatment management and the Recare platform for digital discharge management, hospitals can rely on a combination of ready-to-use and established solutions. This reduces complexity during implementation and also helps to quickly implement the value creation in clinical processes. We were also particularly impressed by the flexibility of BEWATEC.ConnectedCare in connecting additional services."
Maximilian Greschke, CEO Recare
Clear benefits – for patients and hospitals
The strategic partnership between BEWATEC and Recare offers hospitals a solution that fulfills all the mandatory and optional criteria for funding category 2 and in which each player contributes its competencies and plays to its strengths. In this way, Recare takes over the area of discharge management and can bring the usual quality and functionality to hospital processes in the long term. In addition to offering its own modules, the open patient platform by BEWATEC enables the integration of other systems and partners, such as samedi or Thieme Compliance, for comprehensive admission and treatment management. From digital patient history and information to appointment management and the transmission of treatment documents – BEWATEC.ConnectedCare supports patients and hospital staff along the entire Patient Journey.
Easily cover all must-have criteria
The Future of Hospitals Legislation not only brings subsidies for hospitals, but also many uncertainties. However, the cooperation between BEWATEC and Recare provides a solution. With both companies, hospitals can rely on market-tested solutions that have already been used many times and extensively tested by colleagues. The companies support hospital decision-makers in the complex application process and ensure Future of Hospitals Legislation-compliant implementation, which must be demonstrated by the hospitals in 2025. In addition, hospitals receive a sustainable digitization solution that on the one hand helps immediately, but on the other hand also grows with the future needs of the hospitals. BEWATEC CEO, Philipp Schmelter, sums it up like this: "The Future of Hospitals Legislation offers the unique opportunity to break away from proprietary monoliths now and switch to digital platform solutions based on state-of-the-art technologies, standardized interfaces and the highest security standards. This will enable hospitals to develop accordingly independently, flexibly and sustainably in the coming decades."
The Future of Hospitals Legislation was the kickstarter for deeper cooperation between the companies. However, the process practice of the hospitals gives rise to further needs and synergies between the areas of admission, treatment and discharge management, which can be implemented in joint digital use cases. The industry is therefore eager to see what ideas and innovations BEWATEC and Recare will come up with in the future.
With more than 500 acute and rehabilitation clinics and over 13,000 other service providers, Recare is the largest digital platform for discharge management measured by the number of active contractual partners in Germany. The digital platform enables the efficient search for care places in the areas of care transfer, hospital transfer, follow-up treatment and the associated organization of patient transport and aids.
