European Society of Cardiology

Dr Franz Goss, MD, FESC, is a senior cardiologist at the Heart Center Alter Hof in Munich. His special interests are quality of care programs and outcome research. He is vice president of BNK (German Association of Cardiologists in Private Practice) and CEO of BNK Service Ltd (Service Company of BNK). Since 2004 he has conducted 14 research studies with over 50.000 patients being observed. Main focus of this healthcare research was on improving the therapy of heart failure, CAD/ACS, pacemaker telemetry and optimizing the transfer of information between the outpatient and inpatient sector in Germany (e.g. CLARIFY, GLORIA, CARELINK Network, ProAcor, SPIDER). These studies were primarily designed as pilot projects to optimize the treatment of CHF patients and to negotiate and conclude selective agreements with German health insurers (e.g. AOK, Barmer, BKK, DAK). Optimizing treatment pathways using EHR in patient centered applications is the primary focus of future projects.
