Added value for patients
The aim of the center is to create added value for the patients by offering patient paths which avoid double dating and unnecessary appointments and which can directly adress the qualified specialist. The close links and networks between the participating hospitals allow for efficient use of financial resources, avoiding duplication and delays. For patients, a telephone exchange of information and as a central point of contact with a highly qualified secretary is set up, which is in a position, to either immediately or after consultation with the specialists of the Center fix an appointment with a competent physician. The Secretary is IT-connected with all participating hospitals and can advance and collect all available data to prepare for joint consultations. This person helps the patient to take the most appropriate way for her/him and can assess the urgency of care in close collaboration with the specialists . The MCW secretary is also informed about ongoing studies and arranges access to advanced translational treatment modalities.
