Panel

Date
April 11, 2019

Time
13:15 - 14:45

Location
_Stage A, Hall 1.2

There is great potential in the networking of routine medical healthcare data and cutting-edge medical research: both for improvements in medical treatment and for efforts to increase the attractiveness of Germany as a business and science location.

By 2021, in the context of its medical informatics initiative (MII), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will have provided funds of more than € 150 million for the improvement of research activities and patient care by the introduction of innovative IT solutions.

In four funded consortia, nearly all the institutions of medical faculties at German universities at more than 30 locations will be cooperating with research institutions, commercial enterprises, health insurers and patient representatives to develop a framework for the use of research findings for the direct benefit of patients. The plan is to make the exchange and use of healthcare, clinical and biomedical research data possible across all institutions and sites. Data protection and data security have top priority here.

BMBF, the four funded consortia DIFUTURE, HiGHmed, MIRACUM and SMITH as well as the MII coordination office will be presenting the initial results of this project at DMEA and will also be providing an outlook on what steps are intended next.

This session is organised and held by the Technology and Method Platform for Networked Medical Research (TMF), the Association of German University Clinics (VUD) and the German Medical Faculty Day (MFT).
