Susan Schneider, a health policy spokeswoman for the FDP, emphasized on We Choose Health that the FDP wants to promote digitalization in the health care industry. According to Dr Frank Rinken, head of Dortmund’s health department, this is urgently needed in his district. So far, Renken sees no profit in the national computer software for health authorities, SORMAS: “Something being advertised here isn’t working. We don’t think it’s feasible for developers to bring a successful product to market.”

More nursing staff and a focus of specialist expertise in hospitals were other central topics of the programme, which can be seen in advance on Health TV’s YouTube channel and will be broadcast on Line TV on Sundays at 1 p.m.

Health authorities: no network possible – SORMAS still has shortcomings

He criticizes Dr. Frank Rinken Information Technology Management System and further explains: “We have to switch to other channels of rapid communication, we still have to write emails.” Presenting the software to health authorities nationwide has been a challenge in times of pandemic, says Susan Schneider. She sees this as an opportunity for digitization. “We have to continue down this path and show the advantages,” she explains.

The FDP wants to create another important interface with the restructuring of the state health center into a “state health office with expanded competencies”. “The pandemic has shown us where there are problems and that we need a place where everything is brought together properly and we have been very supportive of this facility,” said Dr. We’ve been waiting and calling for a statewide health authority for 15 years and are happy with every step, no matter how small, that’s taken in that direction.”

Nursing: The nursing profession should become more attractive

Improving working conditions for employees in the care sector is one of the objectives of the Family Development Program. Schneider sees an opportunity for greater digitization through smart hospital beds and robotics. “There is a shortage of staff, and that is the most important thing,” explains Andreas Hustadt, head of the North Rhine Medical Service, which, among other things, conducts annual quality checks in nursing homes. “Nursing professions should become more attractive and, above all, should be well paid,” Hustadt says. It is also important to enable current employees to combine family and career. “People leave care because of shift work.” The economist sees an urgent need for action here and notes that “next year there will be 10 percent more sponsorship requests, five percent of which will be new applications.” Susan Schneider sees a short internship as an opportunity to overcome a bottleneck. “We have found that you do not need three years of nursing training for all activities.” A one-year apprenticeship would enable people to enter the nursing profession who could not afford a ‘too complex and very technical’ three-year apprenticeship.

Hospital planning: focus on providers

“We want to improve quality,” explains health politician Schneider. “It doesn’t make sense for a hospital to make 100 hips a month and another ten kilometers at a distance of only ten kilometers. That’s nonsense.” There needs to be more regulation here and “above all, rural areas need to be better connected,” Schneider continued. Andreas Hustadt attests that the North Rhine region has an extensive and well-established supply structure. He advises to “continue to focus on specialized centers”, but at the same time refers to staffing problems. The structural review showed: “When hospitals apply for services to become highly qualified performance centers, they often fail because they have too few specialized staff, such as psychotherapists or occupational therapists, to ensure the quality of treatment.”

The talk moderated by Birgit Lichterman is part of the new season of We Choose Health. In an exchange with state politicians and experts from the field, health tv examines the health policies being conducted by the CDU, SPD, FDP, Greens and Left Party in the NRW elections on May 15, 2022.
