Decker and his colleagues wanted to deliver a more sustainable solution. Inspired by online social networks and communication platforms, they developed a software that enables employees to help shape ongoing processes.
Even non-it experts can configure our system according to their needs.
Ansgar Jonietz was awarded Social Innovator of the year, for Washabich, a free online service which silplifies the jargon of medical findings.
In 2011, he developed the idea for a translation service for medical findings. Now, his team consists of a total of 1,300 medical students and doctors. They are volunteers and to date have translated approximately 26,000 medical findings into a language that can be easily understood by patients.
We plan to improve doctor patient communications this way - so that our translation service someday become superfluous.
Congratulations to the winners!
The next stop will be in Spain, in November.
