Johannes Bittner is a social entrepreneur, doctor, and a project manager at the Bertelsmann Stiftung.

Johannes works on projects that use digitalization for the good of society. He founded and led the award-winning social enterprise “Was hab’ ich?” for five years – an online platform that enables patients to understand their medical findings. His belief is that digitalization can alleviate and solve social problems in many areas of life – like the platform “ichhelfe.jetzt”, which he initiated in August 2015. ichhelfe.jetzt connects volunteers and help organizations to support the integration of people in need, like refugees, and establish a new helper culture. In 2016, the website was awarded as one of the ten most impactful refugee projects in Europe by the European Commission.

Since 2016, Johannes has been working as a Project Manager on “The Digital Patient“, a project of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, in order to make digitalization in medicine more useful for patients. He graduated from the University of Cologne after studying Human Medicine in Kiel and Dresden.
