The key topics of the DMEA guided tours 2024

The success of medical treatment is dependent on many factors. In addition to the correct medical agent, the right dosage as well as side effects, reciprocal effects and many other considerations must be taken into account.

This is an area where digitalisation can help doctors, nurses, pharmacists and naturally patients to keep everything under control and where it is possible to make the medication process safer, from prescription through to drug provision and use.

Digital solutions can support all phases of treatment in every sector and improve communications between everyone involved.

Cloud computing already plays a major role in many sectors, including healthcare. However, health cloud computing in particular faces massive obstacles due to concerns regarding data privacy and the safety of sensitive health data, and because of wide-ranging scepticism among decision-makers and users and unresolved legal issues.

All the while, the potential for improving medical care is immense, from being able to store and process data, the availability of computing power, to the provision of complete user applications.

We want to highlight the benefits cloud computing can offer for healthcare and how existing obstacles can be sensibly overcome.

From patient anamnesis to the documentation of illnesses and therapies – as a healthcare system, we collect a huge amount of data every day. This opens up immeasurable potential for improving patient care safely and sustainably.

A prerequisite for the sustainable improvement of care through data-supported developments is the creation of a legally secure framework for the use of data and, not least, the willingness of patients to make sensitive data available for innovations.

At federal level, the Health Data Utilization Act and the Digital Act open up new possibilities for the further use of existing health data.

In addition to the large market for service providers, a patient-focused offering is increasingly emerging. This aims to give patients confidence in dealing with their illnesses: Whether dealing with symptoms, correctly assessing and reacting to adverse outbreaks when checking their own vital signs or becoming more actively involved in therapy.

Empowering patients not only improves care and simplifies treatment, but also gives those affected a better quality of life.

Software, tools and other applications that were previously only available to medical and nursing staff will increasingly be used by the patients themselves and electronic patient records will also be in the hands of the patients themselves in the future, with only the patient deciding who has read and write access.

This makes it all the more important to inform patients about the potential and possible dangers so that they can not only handle their own data responsibly, but also gain a better understanding of their own health.

The archiving periods for patient records are generally 10 years, and in the case of chronic illnesses and/or radiotherapy even 30 years. In addition to blood products and plasma proteins, this also includes paper-based and imaging documents (care reports and plans, X-rays, MRIs, ECGs, etc.).

The volume of data is increasing all the time, meaning that for reasons of rationalization and economy, archiving and documentation must be transferred to digital archiving systems in all healthcare facilities in the future.

Fast and beneficial documentation, more efficient care and administrative processes or better communication with the interdisciplinary team (e.g. doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacies, etc.) are just a few examples of what the digitalization of care promises.

The aim is to relieve the burden on care recipients, their relatives and the caregivers themselves, as well as to increase the self-determination and participation in social life of care recipients.It has not only been decided that 15,000 outpatient and 15,000 inpatient care facilities will be connected to the TI from July 1, 2025, telecare, care robotics, digital documentation and assistance systems or AI in care, among other things, will increasingly find their way into the care landscape.All of this makes the digitalization of nursing care one of the most dynamic and relevant fields of the future.

At this Solution Hub, we would like to highlight the opportunities and challenges of digitalization in care and what still needs to be done to make it a success.

In order to achieve interoperability in healthcare and research in Germany, the use of international standards is required.Syntactic standards (e.g. FHIR) and semantic standards (e.g. SNOMED CT and LOINC) enable structured and therefore reusable data exchange in various areas.

Solutions that work with these standards can therefore offer added value for healthcare, research and administration.

This tour is exclusively reserved for DMEA's career partners.

Career partners actively and directly support DMEA's young talent program, at which we show students and graduates the many opportunities in health IT. Find out more about the career partner benefits and opportunities!

AI in Healthcare

Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and algorithms have been on everyone's lips for years in the context of the digitalization of the healthcare sector and have also been omnipresent in the media, at the latest due to the debates surrounding chat GPT.

Beyond marketing promises, the new processes have already found their way into everyday medical practice in many areas, whether for clinical decision support or for use by patients.

Many current use cases sounded like science fiction a few years ago - but the future is now, and the potential of artificial intelligence in all areas of care can hardly be overestimated.

Are you an exhibiting software manufacturer or IT service provider in the healthcare sector - but do not find yourself in the key topics of the Solutions Hub 2024? Then we offer you the opportunity to present your product and/or service in this broad-based session.

Telemedicine methods are being used increasingly widely in patient care in Germany - this was particularly evident during the Covid-19 pandemic. An overcrowded waiting room or a long journey to the GP surgery may become a relic of the past.

Telemedicine is where medical services can be offered over a physical distance. Practitioners and patients, but also practitioners among themselves, can use digital applications such as apps, video services or teleconsultation platforms with the help of information and communication technology to communicate with each other and improve treatment.
