Network meeting in Essen
On 10.05.2011 a network meeting took place in the MediClin hospital Rhein/Ruhr in Essen for partners in the Biomon network. The host was the MediClin Hospital with the neurology chief, Prof. Dr. Mario Siebler. Professor Siebler is successfully involved in various neurology specialties. The focus in Essen is the rehabilitation of patients with neurologcial diseases. Professor Siebler already uses telemedicine to cooperate with selected hospitals. MEYTEC systems are used in both the MediClin Hospital and the University of Düsseldorf hospital. Participants in the network agreed to involve more doctors to identify upcoming topics.
First Tele-hospital opens in China
On May 12, 2011, the health minister of Saxony, Ms. Christine Clauß, officially oversaw the start of the first tele-hospital between Saxony and China in Haikou, China. In the Haikou Municipal Hospital in the province of Hainan, the first tele-clinic built and launched outside of Germany was opened. The hospital in Haikou on the island Hainan will use the new telemedicine capabilities to cooperate with interested hospitals in Germany in order to facilitate access to German medical expertise for German tourists and employees of German companies. Eventually it will also be used to increase knowledge of Chinese medicine internationally. At the ceremonial opening in Haikou, state minister Clauß emphasized, "Telemedicine is the fundamental building block for health care in the future. Modern, safe internet technology makes cooperation possible not only within regions, but also across international borders. Saxony is leading the way in this field." The opening of the Tele-clinic was followed by the Chinese and German press with great attention. The technical solutions were provided by MEYTEC.

MEYTEC telemedicine systems arrive in Switzerland
A few weeks ago in Switzerland the first stationary and mobile telemedicine systems from MEYTEC were launched. After extended marketing and other research, the doctors in St. Gallen Hospital and Spital Grabs decided in favor of MEYTEC solutions. MEYTEC´s managing director for telemedicine, Mattes Papendieck said, "The Swiss physicians are quite discerning and quality-conscious. They evaluated various systems at length, and it is therefore especially noteworthy that our solutions were finally selected. The MEYTEC systems which have been installed provide much more than simple videoconferencing capabilities and thus ease the doctors´ workloads on teleconsultations considerably. It was to our advantage that our systems were developed together with medical users and have already been extensively tested. We look forward to successful cooperation with the Swiss doctors."

Information on telemedicine congress on-line
The 2nd National Telemedicine Congress will take place on 3 and 4 of November, 2011 in Berlin. Experts from four medical societies will discuss the current status and development of "Telemedicine and Guideline-Based Healthcare Delivery in Germany". It has often been the case that the information needs of specialists and general practitioners must be more precisely examined in order to ensure optimal patient care. The congress will confront this discussion and contribute to improvements in the area of telemedicine. The focus of the 2nd day will be the presentation of telemedicine applications in European countries. Great distances, low population density and modern medical care present no contradictions. Norway, for example, is a thinly populated country with regions where patients live far from hospitals and nonetheless have access to competent medical care. Telemedicine has been piloted and used there since the early 90s for diagnostic support in numerous projects. This project and other examples from Sweden as well as a cross-border EU project will illustrate the potential and variety of telemedicine applications. Project presentations and contributions on the professional development of medical staff round off the varied range of topics.
