I want to create a titlepage as the one shown here. But I don't know how to put a line under the logo and get the text and all the stuff in the right position.

I've tried some things with:

\begin{titlepage}

\pagecolor{blue}
\includegraphics{logo.jpg}
\title{TITLE}

\end{titlepage}

but it's still not looking like the pdf. Any ideas, suggestions or solutions?

Working upon Harish Kumar answer, we can get the following:

enter image description here

\documentclass[12pt,demo]{report} %% Remove demo in your file.
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}% Used for dummy text.
\definecolor{titlepagecolor}{cmyk}{1,.60,0,.40}
\definecolor{namecolor}{cmyk}{1,.50,0,.10} % Here I am trying to define the font color that is used in the example but I don't really know which one is it so I leave this to the OP to figure out
%-----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{titlepage}
\newgeometry{left=7.5cm} %defines the geometry for the titlepage
\pagecolor{titlepagecolor}
\noindent
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{logo.jpg}\\[-1em]
\color{white}
\makebox[0pt][l]{\rule{1.3\textwidth}{1pt}}
\par
\noindent
\textbf{\textsf{UniversitätsKlinikum}} \textcolor{namecolor}{\textsf{Heidelberg}}
\vfill
\noindent
{\huge \textsf{Handbuch 1.3}}
\vskip\baselineskip
\noindent
\textsf{August 2008}
\end{titlepage}
\restoregeometry % restores the geometry
\nopagecolor% Use this to restore the color pages to white
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\lipsum[1-9]
\end{document}

There are several things to improve like may be using minipages, etc. An update as suggested by Harish Kumar is to use the geometry package as shown above, which is indeed better than my previous answer.

@HarishKumar I know but didn't have time to do it. Am working on a handout right now. –  azetina Dec 7 '12 at 2:20

\hrulefill inserts a horizontal line.

What do you mean by the right position? If you want to align text, you can use the environments flushleft, center, flushright. So that would be

\begin{flushright}
    this text appears on the right of the page
\end{flushright}

also, if you want to print the title, you would simply say \maketitle, though you have to fill in the fields of the title (e.g. author, title, date) at any point in the document before you say \maketitle (usually in the preamble). So in your case you could say

\title{TITLE}


\begin{titlepage}

    \maketitle

\end{titlepage}

to print TITLE on your title page.

You can use \rule{width}{height}.

\documentclass[12pt,demo]{report} %% Remove demo in your file.
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}
%-----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{titlepage}

\pagecolor{blue}
\noindent
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{logo.jpg}\\[-1em]
\makebox[0pt][l]{\rule{1.3\textwidth}{1pt}}
\par
\noindent
This is the title
\end{titlepage}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\end{document}
