Smart doctor who knows WiFi names and codes

questions and answers

The transfer takes place via a sophisticated technical system, the "intelligent network", which runs in the background of 116117: If a patient dials the six-digit number in Bremen, for example, the system uses the automatically transmitted area code to find out exactly where the call is coming from in a matter of seconds and which on-call service is responsible for him.

All of this usually happens automatically - and unnoticed by the caller. After just a few seconds, the caller is connected to the correct service. If the location of the caller cannot be found, he will be asked to provide his postcode.

Forwarding to the respective on-call service then takes place automatically or via one of the 116117 service centers set up especially for these cases. The employees in the service center can easily refer the patient to the right on-call service using his or her address.
