With the goal of improving rheumatology care and based on his specialty, a rheumatology focus practice quickly emerged, which has been established as an MVZ for rheumatology since 2015.
In 2020, the MVZ was approved for ASV Rheumatology. In addition to the guideline-compliant “treat to target” concept in patient care, the focus of activities is on process optimization with digitalization of medicine, in order to allow more time for the patient, among other things, in the conversation in the sense of human medicine.
Thus his activities in the executive committee of the professional association of German rheumatologists and the cooperation in the AG IT/Digitalisierung of the BDRH as well as the cooperation in the AG Digitales of the DGRH counted to his tasks.
