Digitisation in the healthcare sector
Digitisation in the health care system will improve patient care while reducing costs and error rates. In the future, the interdisciplinary and topic-spanning communication between service providers such as doctors, hospitals, but also e.g. diagnostic laboratories, as well as cost bearers such as private and statutory health insurance companies will be largely digital, based on the Electronic Patient Record (EPA). Large parts of the digital infrastructure, i.e. both medical and laboratory information systems, medical devices, software-based medical products, as well as communication systems, e.g. for billing, must ensure secure and cross-system networking. The key to this interoperability is the use of established communication standards, such as HL7 and IHE profiles and interfaces. In order to develop and implement this complex system, a broad professional expertise about the interaction in the health care system and detailed IT know-how is required. We have both, and can support you in your projects.
