Dear Readers,

this year MEYTEC GmbH Medizinsysteme will step by step take over the sales of telemedicine products, systems, solutions and services from MEYTEC GmbH Informationssysteme, as well as selected medical products from other manufacturers, focusing especially on international marketing. The agreement reached between the Nordwest Hospital in Frankfurt am Main and MEYTEC GmbH Medizinsysteme in Seefeld near Berlin makes it possible to transport neurological expertise from the KHNW to other countries and at the same time connect with telemedicine solutions from MEYTEC. The success experienced in Brunei seems to be the start of a very promising cooperation between the two companies.

As always, enjoy!

Yours,
Gerhard W. Meyer
