Event Description

The European medical on-call service number 116 117 was fi rst introduced in Germany in 2012. To date more
than three million patients have benefi ted from its non-emergency medical assistance service. First steps
have been taken in several countries to establish a European number for harmonized services of social value.
The German Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians cordially invites you to join us for a
workshop with experts from Austria, Estonia, Sweden and Germany. We would like to provide you with our
