MEYTEC JENA joins the telemedicine focus day in Apolda (Thuringia)


On the 8th of June 2024, the first telemedicine focus day took place in Apolda (Free State of Thuringia), organised by the wecare agency. Representatives from 20 projects with positive evaluated proposals came together to inform the visitors about their innovative ideas and solutions in the field of telemedicine for rural healthcare.

MEYTEC was represented with an exhibition stand under the vision “The hospital of the future is at home”, which was presented for the first time at the DMEA 2024 in Berlin.

MEYTEC JENA and MEYTEC GmbH Informationssysteme presented also the wecare project “Vital@Home”. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF from Jena is an another project partner. The IOF has taken over the development of innovative multi-camera sensors for the contactless measurement of vital data. The main application is continuous measurement of the important vital data in the home environment of older people. The participants of the event were able to view the initial technical approaches not only as text or images, but also to try them out interactively. The start-up company MEYTEC JENA will continue to pursue and publicise this vision

The experts Dr. Albrecht Günther and Prof. Michael Bauer conducted a live presentation for the camera team from the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (MDR) of how teleconsultation outside a hospital can improve patient care.

The telemedicine focus day in Apolda proved to be a great success and marked a promising start for the practical implementation of the projects presented.

For more than three years, the wecare agency has been the first address of call for practical ideas and concepts to improve healthcare in the rural areas of Thuringia through the use of digital technologies.
