Digital Health

The term «digital health» describes the use of digital technologies in the healthcare sector. The objectives are to optimize patient care, facilitate access to medical care, and improve diagnoses and treatments. In addition, digital health should increase efficiency and reduce the costs of healthcare.

Digital health is playing an increasingly important role in healthcare provision. Digital health encompasses a variety of applications and technologies. This includes telemedicine or electronic health records as well as wearable devices (e.g. fitness trackers) or health apps. 

Drawing on many years of digital health expertise, we at the IPM investigate the opportunities and challenges presented by digitalization within the healthcare sector. For us, innovations, solid research-backed findings, and practical applications are essential. 

Our services include the following focal areas:

We happily provide our services to a broad range of companies – from start-ups to large-scale enterprises. Our goal is to continuously improve the healthcare system by combining a variety of perspectives from theory and practice. And if a collaboration results in a scientific publication, this can even contribute to the broader development of digital health.
