In the nationwide invitation to tender published by GKV- Spitzenverband, ours was the winning pitch and we were duly commissioned as the Association’s new integrated service partner. The Association’s online platform will be strategically developed over the next few years. The technical infrastructure for the FirstSpirit hybrid CMS will also be regularly updated to ensure it continues to represent a state-of-the-art solution in the future.
The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds (GKV-Spitzenverband) is the central body representing public health and nursing care insurers in Germany and at an international level. The Association establishes the general framework to ensure strong competition for quality and cost-effectiveness in the healthcare and nursing care segment. Contracts and other legal instruments agreed by the Association apply to all public health insurers and their state-level associations in Germany, and therefore to virtually all citizens with public health insurance. GKV-Spitzenverband assists public health insurers and their state associations in the fulfilment of their duties and the safeguarding of their interests.
To ensure optimum representation of all of the various aspects of statutory health insurance and nursing insurance, the GKV-Spitzenverband portfolio currently comprises twelve websites. These include the corporate website, for example, which provides information about the work of the Association, as well as providing copies of all legally binding contracts, regulations and other resolutions. The information portal ‘GKV-Arzneimittel-Schnellinformation (GAmSi)’ is one of the few publicly accessible portals in Germany offering options for interactive analysis of the German medicine market as used by public health insurers. A number of interesting KPIs can be displayed graphically as part of a self-service analysis feature.
The e-magazine ‘90 percent’ keeps readers informed and up-to-date, while registered doctors can access information about medicines and therapeutic products from the GKV Medical Supplies Portal.
Nor is strategic development limited merely to technical matters: the design for the existing and future online platforms will also be enhanced, as Monday Consulting works with GKV-Spitzenverband to achieve an even better user experience.
„It’s a milestone in the history of our company to be able to support GKV-Spitzenverband with our expertise in the insurance sector. We are greatly looking forward to our work together.“
Andreas Bögemann, Executive Director, Monday Consulting GmbH
