Off into the woods – for all those who inherit our earth! MEDIACC supports the Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald e.V. with organisation, personal participation and a donation in a unique project: Together with 100 dedicated young people, 3.000 red oaks will be released into the wilderness in a large planting campaign tomorrow, October 24. Thus, the world will be made a little better with united forces – under strict corona safety measures. Because saving the climate is in our hands, MEDIACC is getting involved!
While the virus is once again making life difficult for everyone in Berlin, we are looking ahead to the future beyond our cloth face masks and continue working quickly. Our G-BA study keeps rolling, new studies are ready for take-off. In one of them, we will finally launch a DiGA for a customer. The first scientifically recognised DiGAs are already listed as aids – and rising! We hope that a lot will happen in this field in autumn.
Whether our customers go on holiday or not, whether they take their summer break or not – here at MEDIACC there is no “summer slump”. We are staffed continuously and, as usual, we are there for everyone, even during the holidays.
Not new is the realisation that many published research results are wrong or even negligently falsified. “Flexibility” in the analysis and presentation of the collected data allows for a wide range of interpretations. The tendency to do so is due to the fact that the incentive to do science is no longer the same as it used to be: without regular publications, the career ladder shakes, publishing is done out of necessity, not out of curiosity and joy. Not infrequently, even private differences of opinion, deadlocked views or the insistence on standpoints and expectations are behind the essays. All this leads to a flood of bloated articles in minor journals that do not advance science. Meaningful science requires better networking of experts from different disciplines, linking several levels of analysis and constantly questioning criteria. MEDIACC does its part and delivers clean, insightful scientific work.
Our NUB study, personally supervised by the G-BA, is gradually getting underway. One centre after the other is including patients and they are actively participating in the data collection. Great! Of course, such a study start is often a bit bumpy, but thanks to our many years of expertise, problems are quickly identified and solved. Many thanks to the G-BA for the good cooperation! Our customer, the sponsor, also shows us deep trust, for which we will, as always, return the favour with excellent work. Trust is never disappointed with us! Thus, we are looking forward to the further study inclusions and are curious to see how things will continue.
