Each term (3 months) approx. 3500 patients are treated. In addition, we provide infectiological consulting in 14 different hospitals in the area around Hamburg.
The ifi-Medizin GmbH runs the day hospital in co-operation with the Asklepios Hospital St. Georg. Thus, time-consuming and advanced procedures are carried out in the setting of a day-ward. The interaction-hotline is also an important part of the ifi-Medizin GmbH. Two pharmacists provide help on the issue of drug interactions.

The ifi-Centre for Clinical Research carries out studies, which aim to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of newly designed drugs and procedures. The main focus is the evaluation of new drugs in the field of HIV, as well as hepatitis b and c. This is to the advantage of the patient, who can take part in medical trails and receive new drugs as early as possible.
