Germany catches up in digitalisation by introducing prescribed apps. An interview with Henrik Matthies, director of the hih.
“Big Dreams Meet Real Challenges” – key messages and conclusions from the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference.
How to use the IT potential to increase the quality of treatments, co-ordinate care and manage organisational processes?
The digital revolution is disrupting the established order, provoking discussion, giving rise to concerns and hopes, and dividing society into enthusiasts and sceptics. Let’s discuss the future of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare.
“Everything changes, and we change with it. The world is changing, society is changing, technology is changing, and so health(care) is.” – writes Lucien Engelen in his newest book “Augmented Health(care)”.
We are witnessing a growing revolution around the provision of healthcare. Much is being driven by the proliferation of medical data and the technology that supports this. Future of Patient Data Report – 12 discussions across 11 countries, views from over 300 experts.
Virtual visits, digital doctors, automatic operating machines, implanted health monitoring sensors or robots as carers – many people are afraid of this vision of a future where the machine does away with man.

Gamification is the use of games or, more precisely, the mechanisms of engagement, entertainment and relaxation present in them for other purposes, such as to change behavior, educate or even treat some diseases.
There is great potential for the future of patient data but also lots of challenges. There are many patient benefits as well as multiple additional opportunities for the broader community to bring to the sector.
Innovations such as telemedicine, virtual reality, Big Data, IoT and robotics are often talked about with confidence, but so far have rarely been experienced in day-to-day practice.
