What makes us special?
Location advantage Aachen
Unique at the Aachen location is the existing network of key players:
University Medicine, Technical University, Computational Biosciences (System Medicine), Engineering Sciences, Medical Informatics, Experts for Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality and Science Labs for Robotics in Health Care.
The IZDM networks and bundles these different expertise and competences and thus supports the entire process chain for the innovation of digital products and services.
The path from development to translation into the care system is accompanied and designed by IZDM and an innovative, individualized patient care is developed.
Successful cooperation between university partners from a wide range of disciplines and disciplines and industry.
We put digital medicine on the political agenda and publicise the potential of digital medicine.
We successfully carry out large, national and international collaborative projects with more than 100,000 patients.
What are we already doing?
Development and evaluation of new forms of care and implementation in the care system.
For several years now, we have been making medical services and expertise, e.g. in therapy, diagnostics and rehabilitation, available to local practitioners and patients via digital health services. In view of the shortage of doctors and an ageing population, our focus here is on ensuring and improving high-quality care in rural areas that is close to home.
The IZDM offers the best prerequisites for preparing and advancing the next steps in the development of digital medicine.
We combine findings from innovative, care-oriented large-scale projects into new intersectoral forms of care.
We network existing potential with the aim of generating real patient benefits so that patients are provided with holistic care.
We lay the foundation for an individualized medicine of the future - for each individual patient.
„We will not only get the glass patient, but also the glass doctor, whose therapies will be questioned.
Digitalisation is not only about substituting the doctor, but also about providing technical support for the medical profession“
