Third Week: Digitalization and MedTech in Health Care
The third week of our program will dive into the field of Digitalization and MedTech in Health care. Beside drug innovation, MedTech and particularly Digitalization are seen as the most important fields to cure diseases or even prevent them. Beside the opportunity to fight diseases, Digitalization permits to make procedures in health care facilities more efficient.
To give you an insight into the vast field of MedTech and Digitalization, you will learn about the new field of Xenotransplantation as an example for innovative MedTech. In addition to that, you will learn about the impact of Digitalization in health care facilities.
Despite the multiple beneficial applications of Digitalization you will discuss about the barriers, risks and concerns about Data Privacy. For a suitable use of Digitalization a vast data basis is needed. Often particularly sensible health data are collected, saved and processed. Health Care facilities and IT companies have to guarantee that the data is safe and protected from third-parties.
