SKW Schwarz advises AOK Plus on the development of a digital health platform

SKW Schwarz has advised AOK Plus on the development of a digital health platform.

A key element is the app "AOK NAVIDA - Deine persönliche Gesundheitsassistentin" (AOK NAVIDA - Your Personal Health Assistant), which allows users to arrange a video consultation with a doctor or book courses on the subject of health, for example. A symptom check and a doctor search are also integrated.

Under the leadership of Marion Anzinger, SKW Schwarz advised the project on the aspects of social security law (SGB V), data protection/IT law, competition law and corporate law. These included clarifying the processing of health data on the platform and supporting contract negotiations with providers of digital medical services (SaaS contracts). Questions of public procurement law in the preparation of tenders and aspects of insurance law also played a role.

The AOK is one of the oldest public health insurers in Germany and serves more than 27 million members. AOK Plus was created in 2008 through the merger of the health insurance funds in Saxony and Thuringia and supports more than 3.4 million members.

Advisors AOK Plus:

SKW Schwarz, Munich: Marion Anzinger (lead), Nikolai Schmidt (IT & Digital Business), Dr. Klaus Jankowski (Berlin; public commercial law), Dr. Stefan Peintinger, Dr. Christoph Krück (both IT & Digital Business), René Kieselmann, Dr. Mathias Pajunk (both Berlin, both public procurement law), Markus v. Fuchs, LL.M. (Berlin, intellectual property law), Martin Himme LL.M. (Berlin, insurance law)
