Source: Charite – Universitatsmedizin BerlinAcute Medicine in the Digital ChangeTelematics, eHealth and High Definition Medicine: The Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin is asking questions in a symposium sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina that the digital transformation in the field of acute medicine entails. How can clinical, ethical and technical challenges be met? How can “Big Data” be used optimally? And how can innovative technologies be used in the best possible way for the patient? Experts from science, health care, data protection, economics and politics will be discussing the future of patient-centered acute medicine on February 28 and 29.The digital transformation is a current social challenge. Reliable collection and better understanding of individual health-related data and the safe handling of this data are becoming increasingly important. The use of new technologies as well as the application of artificial intelligence enable the use of knowledge-based data and thus patient-centered and infrastructural innovations. Achievements in this area can improve patient care and patient safety. At the same time, in addition to the use of digital systems, the context of use must also be critically discussed. So how can digitalization succeed in medicine and especially in acute medicine? “Mission – Innovation”: The goal of the Leopoldina Symposium is to work out interdisciplinary challenges, responsibilities and the innovation potential in acute medicine. The conference is open to the public and takes place on Friday, February 28 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, February 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Kaiserin-Friedrich-Haus, Robert-Koch-Platz 7 in 10117 Berlin. The languages of the event are English and German, a translation service is offered. Please register by e-mail. Press conference: At the start of the symposium, a scientific press conference will take place on Friday, February 28 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Experts are available to answer questions, and findings from the “Enhanced Recovery after Intensive Care” (ERIC) innovation fund project are also presented. The aim of the project is to avoid long-term consequences of intensive care such as the Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) with telemedical support. About a third of the patients suffer permanent consequences after such treatment – one patient reports on his experiences. We ask for binding registration at: presse (at)
