The increasing digitalization of medicine is changing the requirements of modern healthcare and at the same time offers various new opportunities for a more efficient healthcare system. Tackling these requirements and opportunities and helping to shape the digital transformation ask for very unique conditions and infrastructure – the regional proximity of clinical care at the highest healthcare level at the Erlangen University Hospital, the renowned research and science at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, the internationally recognized Cluster for medical technology “Medical Valley EMN” and Siemens Healthineers, as the leading company in the medical technology industry.
With the establishment of the Digital Health Innovation Platform (d.hip) as a cooperative alliance of industry, university medicine and research, their partners have therefore jointly set themselves the goal to actively advance the digitalization of medicine and healthcare. d.hip is intended to serve as a platform for the transdisciplinary development of new strategies, products and solutions. At the same time, it should provide the participants with suitable framework conditions for practical research and development at a higher speed in the innovation cycle.
