Digitalising Medical Records

Hamburg Start-Up to Digitalise Medical Records

A fast and accurate exchange of medical records can be crucial for the successful treatment of each patient. However, background infos and details on a patient are rarely directly available to physicians, and patients usually have no direct access to their health data in Germany, where paper print-outs and CDs are often still the only means of transferring medical data.

LifeTime helps patients provide their doctors with relevant medical data like previous findings or wearable tech data. After the doctor’s appointment, new diagnostic data can be taken home and easily transferred to the next doctor. Between two visits the LifeTime app delivers a continuous and comprehensive overview over the patient’s health. Context-sensitive and medically verified information about current and past findings can be displayed directly in the app. LifeTime makes transferring, storing and interpreting medical data easy and secure. With LifeTime, people can make the best decisions to stay healthy.

To bring health back to the patient, was the idea by John Jacubeit, Matthias Lau and the team of connected-health.eu. Founded in October 2014, Connected-health.eu has been able to win awards. Among other things, the Hamburg start-up was nominated as on of the top 50 startups of CODE_n-innovation competition at CeBIT. Connected-health.eu was also honoured with the first prize as best app idea by the Chamber of Commerce Hamburg and took home the first prize in Life Science Innovation of Best of Both Leipzig.
