Modern medicine can treat increasing numbers of illnesses but costs are rising rapidly. At the Medica 2009 exhibition in Dusseldorf, the focus was on eHealth - technologies which reduce hospital workloads and lower treatment costs. Deutsche Welle (DW) took the opportunity to report about innovative eHealth solutions from the MyHeart project. Video-reportage is now available in English and German.

The unobtrusive monitoring of cardiac patients through daily objects such as a vest, a PDA or a scale – can help improve quality of care and reduce hospital stays, says Prof. Dr. Christian Zugck from the University Hospital of Heidelberg on Deutsche Welle.

The MyHeart news broadcasting was aired on November 18th, 2009 in the business news of DW’s journal. The video is available in English and Deutsch.
