Major General (MD) Dr Stephan Schoeps, Deputy Surgeon General of the Bundeswehr, speaks about the high quality in healthcare personnel at the Bundeswehr that was established in the 1990’s and the switch in structure that is currently being planed and worked towards. The goal is to create a paramedic division. A task that comes with challenges in the human resource and the administration department. Schoeps thinks that one division could be ready by 2025 but considering the huge workload he is not convinced.
In regards to the digitisation of healthcare in the Bundeswehr he explains the goal is to create a electronic health record, that covers more than the patient record. Currently however they are far from reaching that goal and just implemented the electronical health record. Another important part of the future structure is the difficult balance between being an attractive employer and the readiness of the troops.
