Online European eHealth database launchedComments Off on Online European eHealth database launched

A German based company just launched the Hospital IT Network, an ambitious online network for vendors and users of IT products and services in the healthcare sector.  with more than 1,500 profiles of Healthcare IT (eHealth) vendors and products.
The main area of the website is a vendor online database offering detailed profiles of more than 1,500 hospital IT suppliers in 11 European countries.  By the end of 2009 the database is planned to be extended to 2,500 companies and product profiles in more than 20 European countries.
Further planned developments to the directory include the addition of “eBay and Amazon style vendor ratings.” The ratings will be verified and checked for unusual patterns to ensure that they are completely independent.
Manager Mr. Buddrus. considers the network as a ”consumers’ association for IT solutions in the healthcare sector.” He added: “The beauty of the network is that a vendor can react if they receive poor ratings, they can either use the news part of the site to defend their position or ultimately take a reactive step to change their strategy, so the website can help to improve the delivery of hospital solutions via feedback.
