Saatmann was founded by Simon Saatmann and Günther Weber in 1992 as an IT service provider with an early pilot project at the Frankenthal/Pfalz Municipal Hospital. It was the first to focus on software development to record “perinatal study” data for quality assurance. 

Saatman solutions are in over 1,100 hospitals across Germany including 14 of the 15 largest hospital groups. Their partners include Agfa Healthcare, Deutsche Telekom, Meierhofer, and iSolutions.
