Care services: physician-in-charge services and personnel leasing

Our nationwide physician-in-charge services offer a solution for the provision of health services for customers in home care and ordinary and intensified service housing units. Our experienced physicians are responsible for the treatment of diseases and symptoms and pharmacotherapy in its entirety, both on site and with digital tools. The physician-in-charge service guarantees competent, around-the-clock medical support for the personnel of the home care or housing unit, making it easier for them to plan the care of their customers, discuss with relatives, and avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency department. The cost of the physician-in-charge service for one customer for the period of three months corresponds to the cost of one unnecessary emergency department visit, which means that effective treatment can also save costs.
