And again a 1st place!
dpv and the innovative ritmo system have been awarded the Gunnar Uldall Business Prize today. The ritmo was able to convince the board of trustees, consisting of the circle of friends and the Uldall family, and wins the prestigious prize. We are proud and pleased that the ritmo has received this recognition as a highly innovative medical product for digital cardiac care. With our vision of “prevention instead of treatment”, we want to make early prevention possible for everyone and thus prevent strokes.
“Cardiovascular diseases are the No. 1 cause of death and widespread disease in Germany,” said dpv-analytics Managing Director Dr. Philip Nölling at the award ceremony. “Many strokes could be prevented if it were known that these people suffer from heart disease.” He added that the “ritmo” could be used to perform cardiac and circulatory screenings nationwide, “and within a very short time – without referrals, without full waiting rooms, without long waiting times. We will invest 100% of the prize money in the further development of our screening services.”
Gunnar Uldall, Hamburg’s former Senator for Economic Affairs and Member of the Bundestag, who gave the award its name, has spent more than 40 years in politics, business and society promoting the social market economy and Christian values. The Gunnar Uldall Business Award aims to help promote the values of the social market economy and preserve them across the generations. It has been awarded annually since 2019 by the AGA Unternehmensverband and the INW-Bildungswerk Nord; the patron is the current CDU Federal Chairman Friedrich Merz.
