Price and Service Management

We support companies with the challenges of price and service management on the basis of established and innovative approaches from applied research. We have the knowledge and the tools needed to raise the potential of companies in the topic areas of revenue and price modelling and Servitization – the transformation from producer to service-oriented solutions provider.

Marketing products and services – irrespective of whether they are innovative or already established on the market – means finding the optimum price and revenue model and supremely mastering the management of prices. As the pivotal driver of revenues, prices have a direct effect on profit. They determine the sustainability of companies and corporate success.

For providers, global competition increases the pricing pressure and the pressure to differentiate. Here companies are discovering the subject of “Servitization" – the transformation from producer to service-oriented solutions provider. The necessary high-quality service portfolio  places great demands on the development and management competencies of the companies that we support in development and quality management.

Joint Holistic Care Management Project 'ATMoSPHÄRE' Launches in Saxony

The joint project ATMoSPHÄRE * which was developed, tested and evaluated in the state of Saxony represents the integration of a medical IT platform with a comprehensive care management approach. The project's premise is that chronically ill, multimorbid and elderly patients should be facilitated in their quest to lead an independent life. To achieve this end, in the future medical, nursing and social services in the region and throughout Germany will be linked together via the newly developed platform.

The ATMoSPHÄRE joint project brings together a number of partners. These include the Medical Faculty of the Technical University of Dresden, TUMAINI – the Institute for Prevention Management GmbH, the DRK Home Emergency and Assistance Services in Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, GeriNet Leipzig, Vital Services GmbH, Philips Medical Systems – which also acts as the project coordinator, and the Fraunhofer Center in Leipzig. The Fraunhofer Center's Price and Service Management Unit provides research and advice regarding ATMoSPHÄRE.'s user and market orientation. This plays a central role for the transferability and sustainability of the product.

ATMoSPHÄRE launched in Saxony in October 2015 under the funding code 13GW0075A. The project has received sponsorship of more than 3 million Euro from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the program "Transformational Medical Technologies with Multimorbidity" under the Federal Government 's Health Economics action field. Up until the end of 2018, it is expected some 700 patients will take part in the project.

* The project name ATMoSPHÄRE (a German acronym) represents the possibility for autonomy despite multimorbidity and old age through patient empowerment and holistic care that is enhanced by the networking of all regional institutions and service providers in the state of Saxony
