Health Home Future Act (KHZG)

The Hospital Future Act (KHZG) provides clinics and hospitals in Germany with the highest level of federal funding in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany. However, the investments under §19 KHZG are tied to 11 specific funding levels. This is intended to enable providers to reduce their investment backlog in terms of digitization.

Solutions from our portfolio can also be funded by the KHZG!

Hospital Future Act (KHZG) Promotion of DORNER solutions


Patient portal

We have different patient portals in our portfolio. For example, with the DORNER OneTest, examinations can be ordered directly from the laboratory via the smartphone. Another example is the patient portal for urology created as part of the BMBF research project.


Digital documentation

Digital documentation is also implemented in various solutions. One popular example is the DORNER EPA with its wound documentation. Another is the sports medicine KAS, which is used at the Charité in Berlin, among other places.


Medication Management

Medication management is implemented in the web-based DORNER Workflow Engine. At a glance, you can see what the patient has already been prescribed and the interactions with the medication to be prescribed.


Digital service request and information on findings

Digital service recording and report transmission has been one of our core competencies for decades. The 100% web-based Order Entry system, which was upgraded in 2020, is used by thousands of satisfied users, such as the Munich leukemia laboratory.

Our KHZG-certified consultants will be happy to advise you, free of charge and without obligation, on how we can support you in increasing your level of digitalisation maturity!

Hospital Future Act (KHZG) - The dialogue (video interviews)

The Bundestag has passed the Hospital Future Act (KHZG), in which it makes €3 billion available to Germany's 2,000 or so clinics and hospitals for investment, although in our federal republic healthcare is actually a matter for the states.

For us, these are 3 billion good reasons to take a closer look. Not to mention the very good reasons, such as modernising our health system and, of course, medical care! With so many reasons, it's worth talking about!

DORNER Health IT Solutions has been part of the German health care system since 1982. At that time digitalization was still in an experimental stage in all sectors. A lot has happened since then. Admittedly: in other industries a little more than in ours.

In fact, the lack of digitalisation in our health sector has also been an issue for some time. In its Digitalisation Index 2021, the BMWi again states that it is the least digitalised of all the sectors observed. That we will catch up with vehicle manufacturing by 2023 becomes much more likely with the KHZG. Or?

In any case, a number of questions now arise:

What are the funds actually for? And what are they ultimately used for? Has the comparatively low level of digitisation of our health care system really only been a question of money? - to name but a few.

The KHZG is already a historical event. And it will certainly keep us busy for quite some time! In the coming weeks and months, we will have various actors from the health care system speak out at this point: Those responsible in the clinics from IT, administration and, of course, medicine, as well as representatives from business, law and politics. Of course, we also invite you to contact us to participate in the discussion.

We look forward to the discourse!

#KHZG potentials - Bernhard Calmer (bvitg board member)

Bernhard Calmer is a board member of dvitg e.V. and Managing Director of CGM Clinical Europe GmbH. He has held key roles in various companies and associations for decades. I had the opportunity and the pleasure to ask him about his view on the Hospital Future Act and may share his assessments and insights with you:
Who wanted this law?
Where is the greatest need in the hospitals?
What will the money ultimately be spent on?

Digitisation in the health sector from the beginning to the present day - Udo Timmermann (former Head of Computer Centre University Hospital Freiburg)

For decades, Udo Timmermann was at the pulse of digitization in the healthcare sector in data centers at German university hospitals. Now that he is no longer employed, he can draw on his wealth of experience, free of any conflicts of interest, and examine the Hospital Futures Act from a completely "neutral" perspective.

Between politics, utilities and industry - Pierre-Michael Meier (Managing Director Entscheiderfabrik)

With the KHZG, politicians are making a total of 4.3 billion euros available to Germany's 2,000 or so hospitals for investment over the next two years. The money will be spent primarily in the private sector. In the midst of this triangle of politics, provider and industry of the German health service the Entscheiderfabrik works for nearly 15 years. Dr. Pierre-Michael Meier is a founding member and, since 2019, managing director of the Entscheiderfabrik and provides a look behind the scenes in the dialog around the KHZG

Robotics on the digital treatment path - Markus Wiegmann (Board of Directors BVMed e.V.)

The KHZG targets shortcomings in the digitization of our medical care. Here, too, we are talking primarily about IT security and software. With Markus Wiegmann, member of the board of the Bundesverband für Medizintechnik e.V. and managing director of Stryker GmbH in D, A, CH and PL, we talk about hardware and robotics on the digital treatment path.
