We create connections for care that improve medical and financial outcomes.
Bosch Healthcare is composed of two business segments: Telehealth and Telecare. The combination of these two areas allows us to offer a broad portfolio of products, systems and services that support patients with chronic conditions and older persons in their homes.
Bosch Telehealth provides over 100 health management programs in more than 30 medical conditions; these programs support home care, transitional and long-term care coordination for patients with chronic conditions. Our telehealth programs are developed in line with evidence-based guidelines and provide data and decision support tools to give healthcare providers valuable insight about their patients‘ health status at home. In addition, these programs provide patients with valuable knowledge and reinforcement to improve their self-management skills, a critical element of improved quality of life. Over 50,000 patients connect to their healthcare providers on a daily basis using Bosch Telehealth products and systems.
Over thirty publications of studies using our telehealth systems have consistently demonstrated positive clinical and economic outcomes.

In 1936, Robert Bosch founded a charitable hospital in Stuttgart, Germany. Robert Bosch donated the hospital to the city of Stuttgart and the hospital is supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation. The foundation guarantees that Robert Bosch’s objectives of high quality care for patients are realized in the hospital, which admits more than 30,000 patients each year.
In 2007, the Bosch Group acquired Health Hero Network, a leading innovator in the remote health monitoring business. Health Hero introduced the award-winning Health Buddy System which focuses on the care of patients with long-term chronic disease conditions.
