Abstract

In the Federal State of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania 35-40% of the general practitioners (GPs) will retire within the next 5-7 years. In rural regions, it is difficult to find successors for the vacant practices. Thus a problem of supplying primary health care to the elderly population in rural regions is foreseeable. An efficient way to lower the workload for the remaining GPs is the implementation of a special trained community medicine nurse (cm-nurse). The cm-nurses are supported by telemedical devices, a video conference system and a mobile data management system. In this paper we report on the information and communication technology (ICT) architecture of the project.
