The Federal Minister of Health visits SOS-NET

The telemedicine stroke-network “Schlaganfall-Ostsachsen-Netzwerk (SOS-NET)” connects the “Dresdner Universitäts-Schlaganfall-Centrum (DUSC)“ with 18 regional partner-hospitals in Saxony to secure a complete and high-quality care of stroke patients in the region East-Saxony. All hospitals participating in the telemedicine network SOS-NET can fall back on the competences of the stroke-experts from DUSC. The neurological specialists from the university hospital in Dresden are available 24/7. The Federal Minister of Health, Hermann Gröhe followed the treatment process of the stroke-patient by Prof. Dr. Heinz Reichmann and Dr. Ulf Bodechtel in real-time via live-video connection. Additionally to the regional stroke-centers of Arnsdorf, Görlitz and Meißen in the SOS-network connect to the Weißeritztal hospitals in Dippoldiswalde and Freital, the Elbland hospitals in Riesa and Radebeul, the hospitals in Sebnitz, Ebersbach, Zittau, Pirna, Bautzen, Bischofswerda, Radeberg, Kamenz, Weißwasser and Niesky, as well as the St. Joseph-Stift Dresden. In 2011 the SOS-Network was already the part of the national IT-Summit in Dresden. The Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel supports the pioneering model of health care.
