Stations of the megatrends: Digital health

Digital health is more than an electronic patient dossier. Above all, this will help to improve coordination and communication between different healthcare organizations and between different departments within a hospital, for example. This does little to change the actual treatment.

Taking the concept of digital health further opens up a spectrum that (still) challenges the imagination with regard to the current healthcare system. Assistance robots in neurorehabilitation or to relieve healthcare staff of logistical and routine tasks, online diagnoses in dermatology and other disciplines or AI-analyzed disease progression sound like dreams of the future. However, these systems are already being researched, tested and in some cases used today. And that’s just the beginning. In an environment in which not only healthcare professionals are a scarce resource and are likely to remain so, digital and technical solutions are becoming a central component of the healthcare system of the future.

The Innovation Conference on August 28, 2024 will bring together experts from various fields to explore the current developments and potential of our focus topic “Digital Health”. The speakers include renowned experts such as MedTech team leader Silvia Rohner at the ILT of the OST, who develops technical assistance systems for the healthcare sector. F&P Robotics CEO Michael Früh takes the topic of assistance robotics one step further and shows how robots are increasingly helping healthcare staff. healthinal CEO Jonathan Meier and dermatologist Dr. Paul Scheidegger, who will present the lessons learned from 30 software prototypes for the healthcare sector and online doctor solutions in dermatology, will then go completely digital. Immerse yourself in this fascinating subject area and discover where and how work is already being done on an increasingly digital healthcare system.

We look forward to interesting presentations, stimulating discussions and an evening full of ideas with you.
