CardioSecur Meets Minister Brigitte Zypries
June 13th, 2017
At the Healthcare Economics Startup Night hosted by the German Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi), managing director Dr. Markus Riemenschneider had the opportunity to introduce Minister Zypries to CardioSecur’s innovative technology. In addition to Ms. Zypries, there were other interesting high-profile speakers such as Dr. Andreas Gassen, CEO of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians.
During his presentation, Dr. Riemenschneider discussed the current hurdles that mHealth Startups face. One of the main factors here is the very tedious process of receiving health insurance reimbursement for new technologies. There was an enormous amount of interest in CardioSecur. Dr. Riemenschneider was able to strengthen contacts to health insurers such as the “Techniker Krankenkasse” and other global players such as Philips. He also initiated new contacts with other startups from the fields of elderly care and pharmacy services, which have the potential for collaboration. The Startup Night was altogether a huge success for CardioSecur. We would be honored to be present again!
