We’re pleased to share that Dr. Rainer Hilgenfeld, A&K Global Health’s Chief Medical Officer, recently presented at the 6th International TEMOS Conference in Berlin, Germany. TEMOS stands for “tust, effective medicine, and optimized services.” Headquartered in Germany, they are an independent certification organization for quality in medical tourism and tourism medicine. They support medical facilities worldwide and work on quality improvement for facilities that serve patients who wish to get medical treatment through medical travel.
The conference took place on the 15th through the 17th of November this year (2015). This event provided a place and time for participants to discuss their work in the medical travel industry, develop future improvements, and network with one another in addition to hearing presentations from experts in the field, such as Dr. Hilgenfeld.
Dr. Hilgenfeld’s presentation topic was “Quality, Efficiency, and Transparency in International Patient Management: The Facilitator’s Perspective.” These concepts are incredibly important to A&K Global Health, and we work closely with our partner organizations to provide our medical travel patients with the highest quality of care that meets their needs.
Dr. Rainer Hilgenfeld is responsible for overseeing all the medical details and staff of our organization. Over the last 15 years, Dr. Hilgenfeld has readied many of our partner hospitals in countries such as Austria, China, Germany, Italy, and Kazakhstan for accreditation by Joint Commission International, which works to improve patient safety and quality of health care in the international community. He is a board-certified internist with over a decade of clinical experience. We are so pleased to have him on our team, and we value his hard work making sure the patients we serve receive a quality experience during their travel and treatment. Thank you, Dr. Hilgenfeld!
