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.
Healthcare actors are being confronted with the growing threat of cyberattacks. In addition to their frequency their impact is increasing too, in some cases with grave consequences. While the importance of a sufficiently high level of IT security seems clear, for many actors in some cases the legal requirements are not. Operational issues, from training staff to the necessary response in the event of an attack as well as the resultant damage also remain a challenge. These are areas where actors must establish measures to ensure integral IT security. We are looking for innovative solutions which the actors support and which address current roadblocks.
Besides a large market for service providers, a growing number of patient-focused services are also emerging. Their aim is to let patients manage medical conditions of their own accord, be it for dealing with symptoms, correctly assessing and responding to unanticipated vital test results, or intensifying a treatment process.
Empowering the patient not only improves medical care and simplifies treatment, it also increases the quality of life.
As a rule, the compulsory period for retaining patient files is ten years, in the case of chronic diseases and/or radiotherapy 30 years even. As welI as blood and plasma samples, this includes paper documentation, imaging (nursing reports and planning, X-rays, MRI, ECG etc.).
Data volumes are increasing at a rapid rate, so that for rationalisation and economy reasons all healthcare facilities will have to transfer archiving and documentation to digital systems.
Digitalisation in nursing care has great potential: rapid and useful documentation, more efficient care and admin processes, and better communications among interdisciplinary teams (e.g. doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists etc.) are only a few examples. Digitalisation can also significantly relieve the burden on relatives providing care and give nursing patients an opportunity for involvement. It follows that digitalisation in nursing care is one of the most dynamic and relevant fields of the future.
As of 01 Jan. 2025 all 30,000 inpatient and outpatient facilities in Germany must be connected to the telematics infrastructure. Since 2022, the 125 SGB XI and 125a SGB XI model projects for the purpose of integrating nursing care in the telematics infrastructure have been taking place under scientific supervision and must be concluded by 2024. This year, DMEA aims to highlight the opportunities and challenges of the telematics infrastructure in nursing care, as well as future efforts in order to achieve success.
In order to achieve interoperability in healthcare and research in Germany, the use of international standards is required.
Syntactic standards (e.g., FHIR) as well as semantic standards (e.g. SNOMED CT and LOINC) enable a structured and thus reusable data exchange in various areas. Thus, solutions that work with these standards can offer added value for care, research, but also administration.
This tour is exclusively reserved for DMEA's career partners.
Career partners actively and directly support DMEA's young talent program, with 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
Is your company a software specialist in the healthcare industry but you cannot find yourself in the main topics of the DMEA Guided Tours 2024? In that case, we are offering you the opportunity to present your product and/or service as part of this thematically more general guided tour.
A crowded waiting room or a long drive to the general practitioner’s office could soon be a thing from the past. Telemedicine methods are finding increasingly widespread use in patient care in Germany - this is particularly illustrated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Telemedicine is the term used when medical services can be provided across a physical distance.
Doctors and patients, as well as practitioners among themselves, can use digital applications such as apps, video services or teleconsultation platforms with the help of information and communication technology to get in touch with each other and exchange information about the respective treatment.
