Digital Healthcare - InnoHealth USA

Innovations in Cross Atlantic Applied Data Solutions for Health

The COVID 19 pandemic has dramatically increased the global demand for technologies and applications in remote supply. The aging world population and its consequences are contributing to this development. All this has led to an opening of markets and more innovations in digital medical technology - especially in Germany and the US. This transition from analog to digital healthcare will change this sector in both countries forever.

InnoHealth USA is therefore interested in strengthening the scientific dialogue and economic network between Germany and the USA by searching for innovators and innovations whose projects can serve as clinical decision support or are intended for clinical application in the following main areas: Digital Diagnostics and Smart Sensors. Ideas in the field of "Aging with Technology" are also very welcome.

Digital Diagnostics in Biomedicine

Treating more and more elderly and chronically ill people, carrying out expensive medical therapies or providing medical care to structurally weak rural areas by remote diagnosis – these seemingly far-of visions are made possible by digital diagnostics already today. Tools of digital diagnostics enable simple and efficient data collection in biomedicine and digital healthcare to improve patient care and customize health services. This is why we are interested in innovative applications such as image recognition, biomarkers, pathology and...

Smart Sensors: Improve Patient-centered Care

Smart sensors enable technological innovations to improve patient-centered care in healthcare systems. They collect and process a wide range of clinical data and make them available in real time for health and nursing care. Modern telemedicine applications and personalized medicine improve the clinical routine and allow for adequate patients‘ care at home. We are therefore looking forward to your ideas in application areas such as bioelectrodes, wearables, e-textiles and more...
