The KHZG comes
Use the opportunity for secure digital transformation with mRay
The crisis has made it particularly clear how important hospital digitalization is.
The importance of taking data security aspects into account was recently demonstrated by the IT security incident at Düsseldorf University Hospital in September.
The German government was late in recognizing the backlog demand of the health care system, but now, with the Krankenhauszukunftsgesetzt (Hospital Future Law), it is launching a funding measure that will enable hospitals to upgrade it's IT infrastructure.
Referring to the incidents at the University Hospital in Düsseldorf, BSI President Arne Schönbohm explains: "The incident shows once again how seriously this danger must be taken. This is one of the reasons why the German government has stipulated in the draft of the Hospital Future Law that at least 15 percent of the funding applied for must be used for measures to improve information security".
With our app mRay you have one of the best and most secure digital tools for the communication of radiological image data at your disposal. You benefit from portable, teleradiological home workstations, a secure messenger for clinical professionals, virtual tumor boards, location-independent morning meetings and expert and trauma networks - even on mobile devices.
Insecure and uncomfortable messaging via WhatsApp or remote desktop applications is now a thing of the past. With mRay, you are relying on a system that was developed as a medical device from the very beginning and that gives top priority to data security. The quality management for the development of our software has been certified since the beginning of 2020 in line with the more stringent guidelines of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which will not become legally binding until mid 2021.
Our software has been used in hospitals for many years and more than one hundred hospitals have put their trust in our software, including the university hospitals in Heidelberg, Mannheim, Schleswig-Holstein, Göttingen, Ulm, Freiburg, Regensburg, as well as large hospital groups such as Asklepios and Vivantes.
We would be pleased to accompany you during the entire process of application and offer you the opportunity to test mRay for two months free of charge! Please contact us until 30.11.2020 under (+49) 6221 6734 880 or send us an email.

We developed a new app for research purposes
With mbits-PIA, messages from medical staff are transmitted directly to patients' smartphones
In addition to the mRay App, which enables doctors to communicate radiological image data, mbits,
as an expert for medical app development, has designed another mobile application.
With PIA mbits is providing patients with all important information during their stay in hospital.
A typical hospital scenario: Patients have not been informed in time or only insufficiently about upcoming appointments or postponed appointments due to time constraints and wait in vain for the upcoming round or the newly scheduled surgery appointment.
PIA enables the electronic communication of messages, appointments and information to patients during a inpatient hospitalization, which makes processes more efficient and reduces waiting times.
A related research project of the University Hospital in Heidelberg will start in a few weeks. We will keep you up to date!

Share images with patients or colleagues via link - fast and easy with mRay
Share a study via link to exchange information with colleagues about a specific case or send images to your patients - the current version of mRay makes it possible. In our YouTube-Tutorial we show you how easy it is.
IT security in hospitals?
When the wrong systems are used.
Radiological image data sent via WhatsApp is still a sad part of everyday life at German hospitals. Unencrypted servers,
with thousands of patient data always cause creepy data glitches, as the case in southern Germany showed a year ago.
In the latest scandal, a remote desktop system at the University Hospital in Düsseldorf was the target of a hacker attack.
"The BSI is becoming increasingly aware of incidents in which Citrix systems were already installed before the security updates have been compromised. Thus, attackers can still access the system even after the vulnerability has been closed. and the networks behind them," writes the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in a report dated September 17, 2020, following the cyber attack on the University Hospital in Düsseldorf.
In this context, we quote the independent IT plattform Golem: "Those who have not yet updated their systems can almost certainly be that they are already compromised. Only one thing is left to do: switch off and completely reinstall - or do without systems from such a questionable manufacturer.
With mRay, you can rely instead on a system that was developed from the very beginning as a medical device and data security is a top priority concedes. As one of the fastest and safest digital tools for the communication of radiological image data, with mRay you benefit from portable, teleradiology home workstations, a secure messenger for medical professionals and mobile access to your data - anytime, anywhere.
It goes without saying that quality management for the development of our software has already been implemented since the beginning of this year after the tightened guidelines of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which will not become legally binding until mid 2021.
In use in hospitals for many years, more than one hundred clinics now place their trust in our software, including the university hospitals in Heidelberg, Mannheim, Schleswig-Holstein, Göttingen, Ulm, Freiburg, Regensburg, as well as large hospital groups such as Asklepios and Vivantes.

mRay connects Asklepios Clinics
Hospital group signs framework agreement with mbits
With 160 medical facilities in 14 German counties and more than two million patients treated, Asklepios is one of the leading hospital groups in Germany.
We are pleased that we could convince Asklepios of the advantages of mRay so that the hospital group would like to extend the use of our app to other clinics.
At the end of last year, the Asklepios clinics of the "Hamburg cluster" had already decided in favor of mRay. With 7 acute care clinics, including the Asklepios clinics Altona, Barmbek, Wandsbek, Harburg and Clinik Nord, the cluster uses mRay throughout the Hanseatic city for radiology and on-call service.
With the new framework agreement, the clinics in the south can also be connected via mRay for teleradiological reasons.
mbits at start-up consultation of the bvmd
CEO Ingmar Gergel answers questions asked by medical students
On 28.07.2020 the first digital start-up consultation of the Bundesvertretung der Medizinstudierenden in Deutschland - bvmd took place.
The digital meeting served to establish contact between start-ups and medical students.
45 students had the opportunity to interview industry representatives from the medical technology sector.
mbits CEO Dr. Gergel along with three other guests answered the students' questions.
Telemedicine, mobile applications and AI controlled algorithms are more and more significant. With mRay these topics are already realizable today and simplify flexible diagnosis, communication and documentation of radiological images in many clinics. A new edition of the consultation format is already planned.
