Effective e-Health Intervention Systems for a Healthier World
„We have founded DITG with the expectation to establish e-Health systems as an integral component of a holistic therapy optimization and to link different support and care approaches with each other. Numerous disease patterns are nourished by contemporary lifestyles. Therefore, the individualized change of lifestyles will play a key role in relieving the pressure on our health systems. We want to provide sustainable answers to this challenge.“
