Board of Directors (Appointments and Changes)

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - Chairman of the Management Board of CompuGROUP, Frank Gotthardt, today reported that - with effect from 30 April - Professor Dr. med. Stefan F. Winter will be switching from his current role as Management Board member to conduct freelance consulting activity for the company, due to personal realignment in the area of international healthcare.

The doctor, scientist, former State secretary and WHO adviser, who has been involved with the company as a Management Board member since 2008, has given a major impetus to the global positioning of CompuGROUP and the medical focus of the Medical Information Technology (MIT) company. Prof. Winter and his expertise will continue to be available to the globally operating MIT market leader in the future. "I am delighted that we will be able to continue to address strategic issues and challenges for global health systems with Professor Winter", said company founder and Group CEO Frank Gotthardt.

In his time as Board director, Professor Winter has made particular contributions in the increasingly important area of Medical Decision Support (MDSS), in addition to medical e-learning, the modern form of medical knowledge transfer. "Medicine in the future is inconceivable without intelligent use of Medical Information Technologies. The implementation of such medical IT infrastructures, adapted to the individual needs of global health systems, is one of the core tasks of public health policy and medical research", says Professor Winter.

In the future Professor Winter, who was manager of the health department of the Federal Ministry of Health from 2001 to 2005, and adviser to the World Health Organization from 2000 to 2008, intends to concern himself increasingly with social, medical and scientific issues in international health policy, alongside his consulting activity for CompuGROUP.
